Description

On the southern part of the island of Tromøy, only 10 minutes from Arendal town by car, bus or boat, there is a beautiful area called Hove. This recreation area is part of a protected moraine that lies along the southern coast. The whole area has been adapted for walks with resting places along the shore. There is a beach and kiosk at Hove camping during the summer season, and several kilometres of smooth rocks. Sundays between September and May, there is a lunch buffet at Hovestua in Hove camp from 12 to 18. 

The paths are many and stretches from Hove to Alve, along Spornes beach, consisting of boulders and rocks, and sand when the sea permits. The area is used for hiking both summer and winter, and is suitable for everyone, children and adults. The trip from Hove camping to Alve and back is about 12 kms, and the network of paths allows both short and long trails.

Maps for sale at Arendal tourist office, Hove camp, and Bjellandstrand Gård. Parking for instance at Hove camping and Hove camp. Bus no 3 to Tromøy Øst leaves Arendal every hour during the day, Monday-Saturday.
