All about the trip
From the Stavanger city center, we head towards the beautiful Mosvannet lake. Along the water, you will experience abundant bird life and lush surroundings.
When we arrive to Three swords at Møllebukta bay, you will have plenty of time to walk around and take photos. We recommend to bring some money for snacks at snacks and ice cream shop called Is Paradice. 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. The petroglyphs were discovered in 1879. There are 170 figures and 80 pits visible today.
We continue to the beautiful lake Stokkavannet. The gravel road around the lake is very popular for runners, hikers, and bikers. When we leave gravel road from the lake, there will be some small hills to climb, so hopefully, you have some energy left.
On the last leg back towards Stavanger city center you will see nice architecture, and also some famous buildings, like Ledaal, the Norwegian King's house in Stavanger. We will finish the trip by a ride through old Stavanger.
This is also an area of the famous Battle of Hafrsfjord, which resulted in the unification of Norway.What Wikipedia Says
