THURSDAY BY 5PM
ARRIVE IN ÅLESUND
After a transfer to Hotel Brosundet, we'll let you settle into your surrounds with a glass of champagne.

A three-course celebration of Norway’s best produce, led by the local region’s best chefs, in collaboration with our Directeur Culinaire and former head chef of 3 Michelin starred ‘The Fat Duck’, Ashley Palmer-Watts. Each course highlights the ingredients that make Nordic cuisine unique.
STAGE 2 - FRI MORNING
Departing from Hotel Brosundet, we leave the city of Ålesund for your first taste of the fjords. This is a point to point ride that takes in the breathtaking roads of Syklyven and Stranda, before making our way to our final destination, the stunning Øye valley. Ride as hard or long as you like, with groups ranging from 50km to 125km.
STAGE 5 - SAT MORNING
STAGE 7 - SAT EVENING
TOUR DE FEAST
A 5-course homage to Nordic cycling culture by Scandinavia’s master of open fire cooking, Niklas Ekstedt. Celebrating Thor and Norwegian riding heritage through the flavours on your plate, this dinner also includes accompanied pairings by Champagne Laurent-Perrier.

TALES OF A YELLOW JERSEY
Fireside chat with Nordic cycling legend, Thor Hushovd, hosted by Adam Blythe. Unwind and enjoy stories from the tour, with accompanied whisky and wine tasting
