Description

Giske - Folkvord - Malmheim - Årsvoll - Soma (13 km)

Setting off from the Gisketjern lake, you will be able to enjoy a tour where no cars are allowed. Almost the entire landscape is cultivated. At Årsvoll you will find the remnants of old settlements from the 18th century. Artefacts dating back to the Stone Age have been located at Austvoll. The street Gamle Austvollvei will take you east to Soma, one of the really old and powerful farms on Jæren. There are many ancient objects and sites here as well.

The road from the motorway to the Gisketjern lake was used as a peat
road up until the end of the Second World War. The townspeople of Sandnes and the clay industry needed fuel, and the peat marshes at Soma came in handy.
