North Sea Road bike tour


The tour along the North Sea Road between Egersund and Sogndalstrand offers a stunning nature-based experience.

Little traffic and limited height gains make the tour accessible for many people. Enjoy the crashing of the waves and cries of the seagulls as you cycle through the attractive and varied coastal landscape. Take a break along the way and enjoy a delicious packed lunch looking out on the North Sea.

Our bike tour package starts in beautiful Egersund at Grand Hotell Egersund.

A delicious 3-course dinner is served in the evening in the Grand Restaurant or Vinkjeller, the hotel’s atmospheric wine cellar. (served from 18-21)

Your bikes will be delivered to the hotel the next morning. From Egersund, you cycle along national road 44, which is part of the North Sea Road. Follow this for approx. 25 km before turning on to national road 33 towards Nesvåg. From Nesvåg, follow national road 33 through Rekefjord as far as Hauge i Dalane. Then follow Strandavegen until you come to Sogndalstrand.

The highest point on the tour is 158 m above sea level. The total distance is approx. 31.5 km, which will take around 2.5 hours by bike, plus breaks.

On arriving at Sogndalstrand Kulturhotell, you will get a fruit platter on the room and a aperitif.

In the evening, round off an experience-packed day’s cycling with an excellent 3-course dinner.

There are many great places to stop along the way:

STAPNES FORT

Here you can experience an important episode in Norway’s wartime history. The Germans had a provisional artillery battery at Stapnes as early as November 1940. During 1941, they got hold of four old Norwegian 12-cm ship’s guns, which were installed here. According to Norwegian intelligence, there were a total of 250 Germans stationed at this site in October 1941, as well as around 150 Norwegians employed in various kinds of work. Modernisation and rearming continued until August 1943, when the Germans considered the facility finished.

In 1944, the British claimed that Stapnes Fort had four coastal defence guns (probably 12 cm), four smaller anti-aircraft guns, a control tower with a rangefinder, listening equipment, searchlight, engine house, munition depot, prison, guard house with telephone connection, field hospital, cooking bunkers and barracks for the soldiers. For each barracks built, there was also a bomb shelter. The barracks were small and scattered across the site, often behind rocks. Along the edge of the sea were coils of barbed wire and several trenches and machine gun positions. A barbed wire fence was erected around the site.

Many traces of German activity can still be seen in the area, not least impressive gun positions and granite-clad concrete bunkers along the rocky coast.
