The third and final video segment of my summer bike trip is ready. After 5000km, arctic-cycler is well and truly in the arctic. I explored the barren, glacial landscape of Norway’s northern-most peninsulas. I cycled down roads most do not visit. At peace with the beauty of Norway.

The video of the second segment of my cycle trip this summer is ready. This is the Scandinavian segment where I started in Helsinki, passed through Finland, Sweden and Norway to the North Cape (Nordkapp). I cycled through endless beautiful forests, lovely little villages, fought off swarms of ravenous mosquitos, and did a lot of night cycling. Night time is the most beautiful and peaceful time to be on the road. I ended at the North Cape to appear on Norwegian television. Another highlight of the trip. 🙂

The cycle trip to the North Cape is now over, and the post cycle pleasure is just starting. I have put together the first of three videos on my cycle trip. This video is on the leg of the trip from Eindhoven to Tallinn. I hope you like the video. It was fun putting it together! 🙂

Today and tomorrow are rest days, today in Tallinn and tomorrow in Helsinki. With grey skies and colder weather, I felt like a day of lounging around and sleeping.

The kind of ‘half-way’ goal has been reached – the beautiful Tallinn. From now on I cycle in Scandinavia in Finland, Sweden and Norway. A sunny day through the fields with Thomas. Arrival in the Tallinn market square in glorious sunshine. Evening walk and dinner with Ranno and friends.

Day 21. 107km. Kergu – Tallinn. Map and gpx.


Hello Estonia. Hello Raimo and Thomas. Fast kilometres and lovely breaks. Beautiful Pärnu and a magic camping ground on a lake.

In summer 2013 I will be cycling to the North Cape in Norway through the Baltic countries. I have been updating each leg of the route using advice from different internet forums. Thanks to the kind people on the forum, I have now settled down to three possible routes through Latvia and Estonia. Which one I will take I will decide when I am there. My current preference goes for the route below, along the coast, through the beach town of Pärnu in Estonia.
