Description

Turn off toward Erøy just north of Erfjord Bridge on Rv13, National Tourist Route Ryfylke. We recommend two walks suitable for the whole family along the beautiful fjord. You can park your car at Betel Chapel on Erøy, and if you come in your own boat, there is a guest pier at Erøy. Your walk around the island Erøy, through the gentle terrain and fascinating cultural landscape along the sheltered Bogsfjord and then along the more rugged Erfjord, takes about two hours. Most of your hike is on a forest road, and the rest is on trails and ordinary roads. The highest point is 183 metres above sea level; from here the forest road descends and crosses a stream. A trail takes you through the woods, and the next forest road you reach leads you down to the Bogsfjord, 500 m north of Hattavågen. Then just follow the forest road along the shore back to the main road.

Erfjord Bridge has a great view, and during the summer you may see lots of boats on the fjord. Should you prefer a shorter alternative, if you have children in a pram or are bicycling, you can follow the school road along the Bogsfjord to Hattarvågen. Allow 1–1.5 hours including the return journey.
Both excursions can be made year round. Please remember to close the gates! There’s a swimming spot at Habn at the head of the Bogsfjord.
