The title of our article, "Best Cycling Events in the Nordic Countries 2024," could just as quickly read the Best Cycling Experiences & Challenges in the Nordic Countries.  For cycling enthusiasts planning an active vacation to the Nordics, Strambecco offers a Guide: The Best Cycling Events in the Nordic Countries 2024, designed for amateurs and competitive athletes seeking the most exceptional and novel events, races, gran fondo's, sportives to pair with a long weekend or a full vacation.  We don't cover every possible event, only those that stand out as truly unique and novel experiences.  The Nordic Countries, including Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark collectively, offer a rich selection of events in pristine and unique locations throughout the contiguous countries.   These events provide a physical challenge and offer a unique way to explore the Nordic Countries' myriad landscapes and diverse cultures.  Strambecco maintains the guide annually and constantly updates our recommendations.

Strambecco's Guide uses a range of criteria for our selections, including the quality of the event producer, their reputation, experience, affiliation with the event Series, and the like.  In our guide, you'll read about events in the International Series, including the UCI Gran Fondo Series, UCI Gravel World Series, and Gravel Earth Series.  Although the events in our guide are open to all rider types, for the most competitive athletes, several are qualification events for World Championship events, such as the UCI Gran Fondo Championship held this year in the Fall in Denmark.

We welcome feedback on the events in our Best-in-Class selections or any recommendations for events we should review.  Please get in touch with  Otherwise, here’s a look at curated recommendations from Strambecco’s staff.
