CYCLING

Aurlandsfjellet på sykkelLærdal offers great opportunities for cycling, whether you go by racer bikes or mountain bikes - easy trips along the fjord or professional training. The valley is well suited for cycling, for all purposes and for all ages.

 

 The entire valley is practically car-free, due to side streets (streets running parallel to the E-16), as well as a nice and almost traffic-free road along the fjord to the old ferry quay, Revsnes.
