Description

At Hestad Chapel, 7 km from Sande towards Viksdalen along National Tourist Route, Galuarfjellet, there is an idyllic sandy beach. This beach is ideal for families with small children. With its historical background, this spot is an excellent choice as base for daytrips in the district.

Around Hestadfjorden is an ideal bicycle route, the trip around the fjord is approx. 13 km long. Many people bicycle from the center of Sande, which makes the trip approx. 8 km longer. On the Southside of the Hestadfjorden it is mostly flat terrain, while it is more ups and downs on the Northside. It is not much traffic on the Southside, which makes this very nice to bicycle with children.

If you want to make the bicycle trip a daytrip, it is many ideal stops during the trip. Worth seeing is Hestad Chapell by Hedstadgrend beach. You should also visit the beautiful Eikelandsfossen, it is a trail down to the waterfall on the Southside as well as the Northside. Kjelstad forest – and culture path is also worth visiting.
