Nordkapp, Norway

Hello,

I'm planning to fly as close as I can get to Nordkapp, bike to Nordkapp, and then turn around and bike as far south as possible along the fjords on the coast in my allotted 3 months in Europe. My hope is Holland or France at least. Anyhow, I'll be flying into Oslo. My question is, where is the best place to fly to with my bike so that I can get as close as possible to Nordkapp, so I don't have to backtrack. Any info about this plan and this route is appreciated. Thank you!

We used Alta, but you can

We used Alta, but you can also try Lakselv. Just check Norwegian airlines schedule and prices.
Going south do not miss Lofoten.
Enjoy your ride!

Great!

Darek, thanks for the advice on the Lofoten Islands. I keep hearing that these are not to be missed!

Thanks!

Flying to Nordkapp

Honningsvåg (HVG) Airport is your nearest airport to Nordkapp but there are, I believe, no direct flights from Oslo. SAS or Norwegian Air to Tromso, Wideroe to Honningsvåg. It won't be cheap! :)

Flights

Thanks Mark! So far it looks like nothing is cheap in Norway. I'm gearing up for lots of bread, jam and water!

Cheers,

You can camp for free almost

You can camp for free almost anywhere, same in Finland using Everymans Right. But yes, Norway is very expensive. I have never been there but you should definately go to Lofoten. I hope to sometimes. Cold start to June here in Pieksämäki. Hope you have warm sleeping bag. Enjoy
