“Actually, Skibotn by the Lyngenfjord has established itself as one of Norway’s top destinations for mountain biking,” says Georg Sichelschmidt, CEO at Visit Lyngenfjord. He explains that one of the reasons is that weather-wise, Skibotn is actually the fifth-driest place in Norway, and due to its fairly mild climate the cycling season begins as early as the beginning of May, when many other destinations in northern Norway still have snow.
