The cycle route all the way from Kristiansand to Stavanger gives you the opportunity to visit skerries and fjords, villages and large urban centres, all in scenic surroundings.
THINGS TO SEE AND DO ALONG THE WAY
You will find an ocean of activities along the route. There are experiences for the family, for the adventurer, for the nature lover and the culture vulture.
Coastal fishing, rafting, rambling, concerts, ballet, and festivals, museums and bathing on expanses of white beaches – those are just some of the innumerable things to see and do that you will come across on your journey. City shopping means a wide selection, and village shopping means you get the chance to buy those special souvenirs and visit speciality shops.
Fancy spending the night in a lighthouse, historical hotel, or perhaps a tent? All along the North Sea Trail, you will find exquisite little hotels, B&B, cabins to rent and campsites, always beautifully situated in scenic surroundings, or in a town centre surrounded by characteristic architecture. We advise you to book your accommodation well in advance.
Culinary adventures are part of the overall experience. There are good restaurants with local delicacies and internationally inspired menus. Or you could choose the local version: buy fresh prawns from the fishing jetty, buy white bread and mayonnaise, and find a rock or bench with sea views while you tuck into your meal.
Even villages – perhaps particularly so – have pleasant cafés and restaurants, and roadside eateries will surprise you with something entirely new.
A trip along the North Sea Trail on a bicycle is an adventure that can take you a day, a week or a month to complete.
