REMOTE MOUNTAIN BIKING IN FJORDS OF NORWAY

Sounding much like a title for a Norwegian crime thriller, Into the Labyrinth is actually a seven-night, eight-day mountain biking cruise expedition for advanced level cyclists offered by H+I Adventures. Debuting in June, tours will sail into the fjords of Norway aboard the Gåssten, a converted, ex-military Scandinavian minesweeper. By day, you’ll be dropped off at remote jetties to unload your bike and start the steep climb to the top of wild mountain ridges (pictured) overlooking glaciers, emerald lakes, and cascading waterfalls before tackling the technical descent down the opposite side. By night, enjoy an onboard chef-prepared meal — featuring organic traditional Norwegian food, wine, and beer — before heading to sleep in one of eight berths. Tour includes three meals a day but is strictly B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bike). $5,100. 888-228-5035, www.mountainbikeworldwide.com/bike-tours/norway

SOLO TRAVELERS BOOK EARLY AND SAVE

Single supplement fees for solo travelers can add hundreds or thousands of dollars to a trip. Now solo travelers can take advantage of the Free Single Supplements offered by Overseas Adventure Travel, a Boston-based company that caters to those age 50 and over. (Because who really wants to share a room with a stranger in one’s 50s, 60s, 70s?) Solo spots are limited, and so the earlier one books, the better chance of nabbing a spot. The company offers more than 50 worldwide small group adventures, meaning land trips are limited to 10-16 travelers, and small ship cruises average 14-25 travelers. New excursions debuting this coming year include The Stans of Central Asia, The Soul of India, South Korea & Japan, and India’s Sikkim & Bhutan. 800-955-1925, www.oattravel.com/
