About the tour
The guide will meet you outside the Stavanger tourist information at 9 a.m. and walk you to the bikes. When you have the perfect bike for you, you will head for the traditional fishing boat MS Rapp, approximately 15 minutes by bike. You start the tour on this marvellous fishing boat to the small village of Lauvvik. From the docks at Lauvvik, you can see straight into the Lysefjord. This unique and wonderful bike ride runs along the waterfront. Your guide will take you through beautiful villages where you will discover a beautiful and authentic part of Norway in just a few hours. You will see animals grazing in the pastures, farmers working on the fields. This is Norway at its best. You cannot get closer to countryside romance than this!

Before you embark on the last part of the tour towards the small town of Hommersåk, you will enjoy a good lunch right at the waterfront. The boat houses at Bersagel will serve traditional Norwegian cuisine with accompanying drinks. You are guaranteed a rustic and authentic Norwegian experience. After lunch, you continue the ride towards beautiful Hommersåk. Hommersåk is a small village right outside Stavanger. The people of Hommersåk live close to nature and sea. The town has a small centre with shops and a bakery.

One last challenge
This beautiful tour can be extended with one last challenge, a mountain top of 323 metres above sea level. From Hommersåk, you will continue out in the countryside toward the base of the mountain. You will spend just under an hour on gravel roads toward the top of the mountain. From parking the bikes, you'll spend about 40 minutes walking to the top of the mountain. You will walk on gravel roads, and it is easily accomplished if you are in average good shape. The view from the top is amazing, with a 360 view of the landscape including all nearby towns and villages. In clear weather, you can even see oil field installations in the North Sea. Well worth the trip!

When you come back down from the mountain, the last leg of the trip down to the fishing boat that will bring you safely back to Stavanger, is on asphalt roads, slightly hilly, but easily manageable for most people of average good shape. The bikes are manual with many gears, so the tour should be easy for most participants.
