Winter cycling in Tromsø

Winter cycling is an amazing activity that requires higher level of stamina if you ride on fresh snow, or can be easier than walking if your way is icy and compact.

In winter we recommend shorter tours on Tromsøya Island or to Tromsdalen. There is nice bike trail prepared at times by local club along the river. It is important to not destroy the ski trails while you ride a bike!!! You also need to pay attention to skiers and people who walk and always give them a way.
For a longer tour on the road you should take a bike way around southern part of Tromsøya towards Eidkjøsen on Kvaløya.

For a longer tours in spring on the days when snow is hard, fatbike trip from Tønsvik to Movika through the mountains following the ski trails is a great idea.

We do not mount mud fenders on mountain bikes and fatbikes. Remember to have some wind and water proof jacket with you for the ride. Good hat and mittens are also a must.

If you stay on the roads winter mountain bike is the best option but if you plan rides on fresh snow or along the trails we recommend using fatbikes.
