Sandnes - Egersund -->100 km 2 nights beside the fascinating North Sea Coast. (2 days cycling). A dozen exquisite sandy beaches, rocky promontories, heather-clad moors and Norway's most productive dairy farms form a perfect mix of scenery, interspersed with lively ports both large and small. Day 1: Arrive in Sandnes. Arrive in Sandnes Cycling and bicycles are familiar features in Sandnes. There has been focus on developing and improving bicycle trails and paths, red carpets downtown, signs and bicycle parking in and around the downtown area. The result is a very good network of prepared paths that are well-suited for cycling. Accommodation: Quality Residence Hotel Sandnes in town centre. Cyclists Welcome accommodations are especially equipped with the cyclist in mind - safe cycle parking, bike/tyre repair kits, good laundry facilities are all readily available. Quality Residence Hotel has gone one step further, the concept of being a Cyclist Welcome Hotel is shown also in decor and in the Cycle Restaurant. Day 2: Sandnes - Naerland. 46 km. The coastline varies from sandy beaches to pebbled shores and rocky coasts. Now and then you cycle inland through the rolling landscape of Jaeren where long stone walls separate neat farms. When arriving at Naerland we strongly recommend an afternoon cycling trip (2 kms) to Ha old Vicarage. The Vicarage dates from 1787 and includes several annexes and out buildings. High quality exhibitions of art and regional themes are held here regularly, making the old Vicarage a popular place for family outings and one of Rogaland's most successful cultural ventures in recent times. A Large beach burial field from pre-historical times is located on a beach of round boulders, close to the old Ha Vicarage. Accommodation: Naerland gjestegaard, hotel beside a sandy beach with all facilities where you also can enjoy a 33 C heated swimmingpool. Dinner at the hotel. The hotel is part of a village that has been serving several purposes. It was built at the time when the ideas of spas was strong, then came the depression and it was Now it is being turned into a multi-purpose area that can serve Day 3: Naerland - Egersund. 53 km. 33 Km easy. 20 km unmetalled strenuous. Two salmon rivers meander across the flat fields. In rainy years they are among the country's best. Everywhere is well-kept farms with dry-stone walls. These stones once lay spread around, making farming so difficult that many emigrated to an easier life in America. Whilst the painter Kitty Kielland and her brother, the author Alexander, revelled in the lovely light, Arne Garborg wrote of the murky mainland. Not until the end of the 19th century did merchandise stone clearance and cultivation change the murky mainland into today's green plains, also making Jaeren the country's centre for agricultural machinery. After crossing the salmon rivers of Ha and Ogna an abandoned road leads you over the moors. On the descent you pass a salmon ladder at the narrow Fotlandsfossen falls.

Reminded me a little bit of home (Ireland) and a little bit of nothing I'd ever seen before. Just so much beauty in this area.

I love the flate, slightly bowing landshape, with the mountains fare away and the big osean in the west. If you take a trip to the osean, you will find many sandbeaches with larges waves. Be prepared to face the wind that is almost always...More
