    We have had several email enquires over the years asking about cycling Norwegian tunnels. We thought it might be useful as a general resource for cyclists planning a tour in Norway to have a map of the tunnels with information on whether they are open to cyclists, lit or unlit etc.

    We have just created such a map on our website. It uses the Google Maps API and therefore it is an interactive map giving you the ability to zoom in on the markers to see exactly where the tunnels are and has clickable information windows.

    If you have any information or photographs of Norwegian tunnels and would like to share your experiences with others, please go our 'Map of Norwegian tunnels' page.

    The more people that can contribute their experiences the more comprehensive and useful the resource will be for anyone planning a tour in Norway.

    We look forward to hearing from you and would welcome your contributions.

    Nice resource, good work (as always)!

    I could add 3 tunnels on Magerøya (Nordkapp), rather than fill your form 3 times you are welcome to lift the information from the this page. I can email you the lat/lon coordinates if you need.

    Hi Redfox,

    That will be great, if you could e-mail us the lats & longs of the tunnels it would make it easier. Thanks for your contribution.
