Sightseeing Ride, Henningsvær–Stamsund, Lofoten Norway
Day 4 and 5 : 74 km 5 hours cycling
This leg of your cycling adventure is quite long so we recomend taking your time and completing it over a couple of days while you explore the area.
You start back on the E10, past Lyngvær you can cross the bridge at Gimsøybrua (views of Bø in Vesterålen). Make sure you take time to explore the island of Gimsøy: little traffic, unmade roads, wonderful walking country and long, white, sandy beaches combine to make this a tour not to bypass.
In summer, you can enjoy the midnight sun from the northern side of the island. There is overnight accommodation at Hov but be sure to book ahead especially in the summer season.
Continuing to the island of Vestvågøy, you will need to cross another bridge at Sundklakkstraumen. Follow the RV 815 route on the southern side, before turning off at the Valbergveien road and continue cycling to Stamsund. Valbergveien has a firm surface and relatively little traffic.
