The Rallarvegen in central Norway, between Oslo and Bergen, dates from the beginning of the 20th century—it was originally constructed as an access road for a railway line (its name translates roughly as “railworkers’ road”). Today the 50-mile long route connects the mountains to the sea and is Norway’s most popular cycling route—some 20,000 bikers ride at least a portion of it each summer. Start your cycling adventure in Finse and ride down to Flåm, located at the end of the Aurlandsfjord, a tributary of the larger Sognefjord. You’ll want to take some time to explore the town while the Fretheim Hotel provides a picturesque and historic home for a night. The hotel dates to the 19th century, when it was popular among English visitors who came here to hunt and fish.
