Choose your experience

We give you the opportunity to choose which experience suits you the best.

The full experience, known as "Tour des Fjords Experience", is a new and exciting stage race over 3 days, with 3 different stages. You will get a taste of everything cycling has to offer with a time trial on the first day, an epic mountain stage in the fjords the second day and finally a tactical race on a well designed route the last day.

If you want to ride only a single day and take part in one of the most iconic cyclosportives of the year, choose Lysebotn-Bryne. It is the most well-known cyclosportive in Rogaland and it includes the famous Lysebotn climb (9km at 10%). If you don't feel ready to ride up Lysebotn yet, then Sirdal-Bryne is the perfect opportunity for you.

Both Lysebotn-Bryne and Sirdal-Bryne are included in Tour des Fjords Experience. You will get to choose which one of the two you want to do as part of the second stage.
