Rent a bike and enjoy Bø at a comfortable pace!
The best way to experience Bø in Vesterålen is by bicycle. The roads are smooth with only a few inclines. We recommend that you book a bicycle in advance, but we also offer “drop in”, depending on capacity. Our bicycles hold a good standard, and we offer different types based on different needs.
Experience Bø’s stunning landscape at a comfortable pace
Travel through the southern part of the island – from Ringstad to Bø Church, through Steine and the “The man from the Sea” statue. Stop by and view the Artscape Nordland Outdoor Gallery or explore the past at Bø Museum before you head on towards Straume. You will pass by the beautiful beach at Fjærvollstranda. You will also have the option of grocery shopping at Coop Prix before head back to Ringstad. The trip is about 40 kilometres long with no major inclines.
Trip along the sea to Hovden
If you’re in the market for some authentic Norwegian nature, we recommend a trip to Hovden along the northern parts of the island. The trip takes approximately two hours, about 28 kilometres from Ringstad, one way. You’ll be travelling along beautiful roads and can stop for refreshments at the local Joker grocery store at Eidet. The road gets steeper further north (up to 70 meters elevation) along the coast. In Sandvika you will find a beautiful white beach where one can rest and enjoy the view. We highly recommend visiting Hovden for an authentic Norwegian fishing village – grab a lunch or dinner at Storhavet Café. The length of the trip is about 56 kilometres long.
