All about the trip
From the Stavanger city center, we will head towards the beautiful Mosvannet lake. Along the water, you will experience abundant bird life and lush surroundings.
When we arrive at Three swords at Møllebukta bay, we will spend plenty of time to walk around and take photos. We recommend to bring some money for snacks and refreshment at ice cream shop Is Paradis. They have tasty dishes, whether you want a burger, ice cream or cake.
We continue our trip along the famous Hafrsfjord. The track is narrow, so we suggest to keep your eyes on the gravel road. A lot of people say that the trip from the Møllebukta along the fjord is their favorite. You can see nice gardens and houses, some small and some bigger ones. A true feast for eyes.
We will leave the fjord just before the Hafrsfjord bridge. There will be a short photo stop at the petroglyphs at Fluberget.
After a pit stop at the wall painting at Fluberget, we will continue to Hafrsfjord bridge and from there to the memorial of Aleksander Kielland. There is a fenomenal view of the ocean by the monument. On the horizon, we will see the islands Kvitsøy in the west, and the Karmøy land in the north.
We will continue to The Black Cave, probably formed during the last ice age. It is almost 9 meters deep, 5 meters wide and 3 meters high. The first people settled here around 6000 BC and used it during various periods up until the age of migration, around 500 AD. From the memorial, you will have a nice view of the North Sea.
Next stop will be across white beaches and waves, where we will serve lunch by the Viste beach hotel. Get ready for some BBQ burgers or Norwegian salmon.
From white beaches and open sea, the trip continues along the countryside. We will pass by farms, fields, and meadows. Guess what? You will also meet an elephant.
Our trip continues to the lighthouse at Tugenes. It lies on the northern point of Jæren. The area around it contains cultural sites from the Stone Age up until World War II. From the lighthouse, you will have a beautiful view. The lighthouse was established in 1828 and closed in 1984. There is an annex, machinery shed, and boathouse. Tungenes Lighthouse has been restored to its 1930s appearance.
After spending some time at the lighthouse, we will head south again. The track from the lighthouse starts on asphalt and continues on gravel roads. On our way back to Stavanger city center we will pass by oil industry areas and typical Norwegian houses and surroundings. The track runs right by the sea, and it's quite possible that we will see some cruise ships coming to Stavanger or leave the city for new adventures.What Wikipedia Says
