Top of Europé Adventure Tour

Cross the Artic Circle and enjoy a motorcycle tour to Europe’s most northern point, the North Cape. Fjords, mountains, glaciers, midnight sun, the Arctic Circle, North Cape – these are keywords for our motorcycle tour named ”Top of Europe Adventure”.

This adventure tour is designed for riders who are looking for something very special: riding along a Scandinavian route that begins in Sweden, and reaches the end of the world - nearly 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle - which means going further north than Prudhoe Bay, Alaska.

The Adventure will take you through the pristine beauty of “Northern Europe” with stunning and bizarre landscapes. You will travel along endless roads through uninhabited wilderness with 24 hours of daylight.

Starting out in Sundsvall (Sweden), we will follow the coastline up to the Finnish border and then continue though the northern part of Finland. We ride the never ending plains of Finnish Lappland up to the border of Russia, and on Norwegian roads that lead you to where Europe ends – The North Cape. The route then continues along the Norwegian fjord coast line, crossing the archipelago of Lofoten after which we turn into the Swedish Lappland and go south back to Sundsvall.

There is no other "Nordic Tour" tour that will let you experience more of northern part of Sweden, Finland and Norway.

Riders will cover a distance of about 4,000 km (2,485 miles), entirely on good paved roads, which are mostly easy to manage.

Some sections (10%) are technically more challenging, but there are also long distances with straightaways.

Wind and rougher climate can be an issue the further north we ride. Hotels have good three and four star quality.

  • Crossing the Arctic Circle
  • The Lofoten Islands - a mountain range rising from the sea
  • Watch The Midnight Sun
  • Ride through Finnish Lappland, the land of the Samis
  • Ferry ride on “Hurtigruten” the "world's most beautiful ferry tour"

What to write about Norway, the world's best motorcycle country? Or, at least, one of the world's best motorcycle countries. Norway's natural environment is mountainous; the coastline stretches more than 20,000 km, and is interrupted by a maze of fjords, islands and islets.

Lofoten is a Norwegian archipelago in the North Atlantic. The principal islands, from north to south, are Austvågøy, Gimsøya, Vestvågøy, Flakstadøya and Moskenesøya. The area covers a total of 1.227 km², and there are approx. 24,500 inhabitants in the region.

The North Cape Plateau, is a steep rock formation located in North Cape municipality, in the northernmost part of Finnmark, Norway. The North Cape Plateau rises 307 meters above sea level. North Cape is a popular tourist destination, partly because of the harsh natural environment, but more specifically, because there is the opportunity to experience the Midnight Sun in summer, and northern lights in winter.

North Cape has been described as Europe's northernmost point, but this is not the truth. Firstly, the tip of Knivskjellodden, located a few miles west of North Cape, is 1500 m further north. In addition, both sites are located on an island, Magerøya and it is therefore arguable, whether they should be included with mainland Europe, because in that case, the Norwegian island of Spitsbergen is a candidate for the title of Europe's northernmost point. The northernmost mainland point is Kinnarodden, near Magerøya.

For a motorcyclist, Norway is a must for your adventures. Fantastic roads and stunning nature co-exist in symbiosis. Visit Norway with your motorcycle in the summer months, and experience something really unique.
