Description

A round trip on the peaceful village roads to Ryvarden Lighthouse.

From the Golf-park cycle past the shops and about 200 metres west of the church ride up the hill on the right, and after about 1/2 km turn right again, northwards along Tjernagelsvegen. This road is partly narrow and winding and is used by heavy transport. After about 3 km there's a side-road on the left with a sign to Eltravåg. Ride about 3 1/2 km until the road gets to Route 541.

Turn left, southwards. When you come to Lyngholmsvegen on the right, you can take a detour out there (2 km each way) to see the monument in memory of the shipwreck, "DS Thor", in 1906. Continuing along Route 541, past Vandaskog, you come to Mølstre crossroads. Turn right, following the signs to Ryvarden. From Mølstrevåg the last 2 1/2 km are on a narrow gravel road over a moor.

At the lighthouse there is a gallery and a café, open on Sundays, as well as weekdays in the summer. For accommodation, you can rent a cozy house with a living room, kitchen, a bathroom and four bedrooms. To book the house/make an agreement please contact Gunn Bente Håvardsholm on tel.: + 47 53 74 80 00. You can find more information on www.ryvarden.no

To get back to Sveio village, cycle to the crossroads at Mølstre, turn left (north) and after about 250 metres, where there is a little red house from the 1800's, turn right onto the gravel road Paddevegen. Beware, there is not much traffic here but you don't always see or hear it until the last minute. Ride about 5 km, turn right and straight afterwards left on to the pedestrian-/cycle-track past the church and shops, and left back up to the Golf-park.

1st leg: Sveio village - Nordskog - Eltravåg (asphalt)
2nd leg: Eltravåg - Mølstrevåg - Ryvarden (asphalt and gravel)
3rd leg: Ryvarden - Paddevegen - Sveio village (gravel and asphalt)

If you want a longer trip, you can cycle from Sveio center towards Førde on E39. Down at the pier in Førde lies the restaurant/cafe Kaien AS.

Bike rental in Sveio Golfpark. Tel.: + 47 53 74 20 25.
