Backwood Bikepacking is dedicated to bring you the joy of wilderness biking in Norway and beyond. Norway is a fantastic country for bikepacking. You are free to ride almost wherever you like, either on single track or dirt roads (though riding is prohibited in most national parks and nature reserves). Wild camping is welcomed, and as long as you pitch your tent at least 150 meters away from houses and keep away from cities and fields in the countryside, you can stay for up to two consecutive nights, some places even longer. You would usually have no trouble finding water, and the roads are generally safe for cyclist. And hey, it’s my backyard.
Of all the outdoor activities I enjoy, I believe riding a bike is on top of the list (though my paddle may have a word or two to say about that). It doesn’t have to be long. It doesn’t have to be epic. Sometimes, just getting on the bike for a short overnighter is all it takes.
At least to keep the itch for that long, epic ride at rest for a while.
