Swords in Rock

A good route choice if you prefer a relatively flat path with well-maintained cycling trails. Along this route, you’ll have the opportunity to visit the “Sverd i fjell” or “Swords in Rock” monument, symbolizing the unification of Norway and the Battle of Hafrsfjord.

Continuing on, your journey takes you to Kvernavik and Tananger, where you’ll cycle along the North Sea coastline, passing the Ruin Church in Sola.

We recommend stopping at Sola Strand Hotel to grab some refreshments and enjoy the prestigious hotel, before heading towards the beautiful Jæren beaches, then further to Tjelta and finally return to Sola via charming, small roads.
