National cycle routes in Setesdal

Description

National cycle routes are being developed throughout Norway. Cycle route 2 Telemark Canal - Setesdal - Lysefjord / Stavanger passes through Valle. The route includes some steep hills, but the scenery is wonderful. You will go over three mountain passes to reach the 27 hairpin bends leading down to Lysebotn. From here you can catch a ferry to Stavanger. With gradients of up to 12%, the route is not suitable for families with small children, but is a real challenge for groups of friends. The route is broken up into manageable one-day stages and there are plenty of things to see and do along the way.

Cycle route 3 runs from Kristiansand to Haukeligrend. This route mainly follows by-roads and paths. Some stretches, however, follow Highway 9. Parts of the cycle route can easily be enjoyed by "normal" tourists and are suitable for day trips and evening walks. Both routes are clearly marked with cycle signposts and route numbers. A guidebook with detailed information about the routes is available from tourist information centres.
