2019 Haute Route Norway

(+44) 161 703 8161

SUMMER 2019

Duration: 3 day Cyclosportive Distance: Various

This brand new 3 day Cyclo-Sportive is a further addition to the Haute Route series of events, and a chance to explore an increasingly popular cycling destination. The inaugural Haute Route Norway is set to take place in the summer of 2019. We will be offering travel packages with airport transfers, staff support, hotels and guaranteed entries to the 2019 Haute Route Norway.

Norway has stepped into the cycling spotlight with Bergen hosting the 2017 World Championships, and this is your opportunity to see the country for yourself. The route will take in some of the most beautiful and challenging terrain in the world, where roads with majestic switch-backs climbs in amongst the Norwegian fjords.

The concept of the Haute Route Norway is like the other Haute Route events: Haute Route Rockies, Haute Route Pyrenees, Haute Route Alps, Haute Route Dolomites, Haute Route Mont Ventoux and Haute Route Alpe d’Huez

Consecutive timed stages (including one ‘Marathon Stage’ and one individual time-trial), legendary cols, minimal flat sections, mountain top finishes where possible and individual timing. All this with Haute Route Pro support to emulate the Pro Cyclist experience as much as is possible for an amateur cyclist.  To view more information, please visit the official website: www.hauteroute.org.
