Sightseeing Ride, Stamsund–Ballstad, Lofoten Norway
Day 6 : 27 km 1.30 hours cycling (route 1) 44km 3 hours cycling (route 2)
Here you have two options to take for your cycling tour.
Cycling from Stamsund the road climbs over Hagskaret (approx. 100 metres above sea level) before descending to Fygle.
Alternatively, you can take the road via Finnstad/Sennesvik. This route takes a pleasant detour to the active fishing village of Mortsund. Leknes is the administrative centre of Vestvågøy Municipality.
Take the route north again and visit the Lofotr Viking Museum at Borg (follow the E10 north for 14 km). Unstad and Eggum are also worth seeing, and here the midnight sun is visible in summer. Both places are excellent for getting to by bike.
Returning to Leknes, continue to Ballstad, a working fishing village offering restaurants, cafés and a range of activities.
