Ryfylke, a large coastal region to the north-east of Stavanger, covers an area of 4,500 square-kilometers. The region is geographically diverse, boasting an archipelago of islands, deep fjords, low-lying valleys, and steep mountainsides. Ryfylke’s islands, which vary substantially size, are characterized by small farms, pastoral valleys, and rugged coastlines.
Do you enjoy bicycling and would like to spend some time by the sea? Join Outdoorlife Norway on a 9-hour cycling adventure across two of Ryfylke’s most beautiful islands, interspersed with relaxing ferry rides through the region’s archipelago.
Your guide will meet you at Outdoorlife Norway’s office in Stavanger (see above for address) where you’ll be allocated a suitable bicycle and helmet. After a quick briefing, you’ll board a ferry that will transport you to the first destination of the day. Onboard, you’ll be able to view Stavanger from a different perspective and get an overview of the rich and complex Ryfylke region.
Once ashore, you’ll enjoy idyllic sights and stunning vistas while cycling across the island. Small villages, green pastures, and old farmhouses spot Ryfylke’s islands, and rocky coastlines give way to the mighty North Sea. After 20-25 kilometers of cycling, you’ll stop and break for lunch. There, you’ll be able to get an idea of the locals’ serene coastal lifestyle while enjoying the wondrous scenery around you.
After the break, you’ll board another ferry, which will transport you to the second island of the day. There, you’ll again explore your surroundings while cycling 20-25 kilometers. From this island, you’ll get a different perspective of the region’s coastal landscape. Once you’ve cycled around the island, you’ll board a ferry back to Stavanger, where your trip will come to an end.
