The perfect route if you’re seeking a physical challenge while experiencing the diverse landscapes and glances of the beautiful fjords!

The journey begins in Sola and continues to Sandnes before leading you to Høle – where you can experience the beginning of the Lysefjorden on beautiful, low-traffic roads. Along the way, you’ll encounter Seldalsbakken – one of the region’s longest continuous ascents, spanning approximately 6 kilometers.

The route will then take you through the elevated terrain of Jæren on your way to Sandnes, Norway’s 7th largest city! While in Sandnes, don’t miss the opportunity to take a coffee break at one of the charming cafés in Langgaten, before carrying on to the final stretch back to Sola.
