A couple exploring the Norwegian town of Brønnøysund by Bike
  • Ride through the historic parts of Brønnøysund town, hearing dramatic tales of local history along the way

  • Get a healthy dose of fresh air and exercise as you pedal through the geographical centre of Norway

  • Visit a local modern visual artist in her showroom on a picturesque farm near the seashore

  • Spot Torghatten, the mountain with the hole right through it, in the distance

When we’re kitted out with our bikes and helmets, our guide will take us on a tour of historic Brønnøysund. Along the way, we’ll hear intriguing stories about the town at the geographical centre of Norway. 

Follow the smaller roads to Tørrfiskbrygga to see traditional boats and old handcrafts, and discover why Brønnøy Church isn’t just any old Norwegian church... 

Next, we’ll cycle about 1.2 miles (2km) to the Kunstlåven, the ARTBARN, in a picturesque old farm at the end of the road near the sea. It’s the showroom of a local visual artist. We’ll share traditional coffee and cake with her here. If you like, take some time to explore outside too – head to the shore and scan the beautiful bay to spot the famous Torghatten mountain. 

When we’ve cycled back to the pier, we’ll have earned a taste of what is reputedly the best soft ice cream in the world!
