Malangen In The Midnight Sun

Malangen Fjord, Troms, Norway

Sightseeing - New - Long - Trending

This night ride in midnight sun is going around the Malangen Peninsula, out the Malangen fjord through the Straumsfjord and in through Balsfjord, then climbing over Malangseidet back over to the Malangen fjord again. Malangen is located in Troms County, Norway at 69 degrees north about 70 km south of Tromsø, the largest town in the area. This is quite far north, and far north of the Arctic Circle. In the summertime, the sun never sets, so you can be out cycling 24/7. Snow is gone, but you still see snow-covered peaks during the ride. This is ride that is popular to do as a Sunday ride on the weekends. It's not too hard, but a few rolling hills where you can stand up and use some power to keep the momentum and not slow down.
