Fjord Norway Vestland ETNE

Cycling the fjords between the beautiful villages (27 km) (Skånevik - Etne)

  • +47 53770700
  •  /  km From You
Overview

The trip starts in Skånevik, also known as 'the gem of Sunnhordland', among other things because of its building style that is reminiscent of Southern Norway. Why not visit during the blues festival in July? The trip to Etne heads west past Fjordhotellet and the idyllic bathing islet Peparen. After 700 metres, you pass a sports ground, and 500 metres later you come to Leknes, where the old Post Road to Etne crosses the road. The next 4 to 5 km is through pleasant villages in a small-scale cultural landscape, before the island of Taraldsøy appears on your right. There are beautiful views of Halsnøy island and the distinctive mountain Sydnessåto towards the end of the fjord. At Ebne, you see four gravestones in a field by the sea, which are part of the biggest ancient burial ground in Skånevikstranda. At Sandvik, you can take a detour down to a large beach. The Ølensfjord and Etnefjord meet off Børkjenesklubben, which is where you turn east towards Etne. After a few turns in the road, you come to Svindal and Holmaseid. Nordstranda ascends steeply from the road, and is particularly steep at Dysjanes. Neset is a very popular fishing spot. You are now approaching Etne, and you can see Tongane industrial site from Fjøsnaneset. At the old Enge school, you turn right across Etneelva river. A fish trap has been set up here, which will catch escaped farmed salmon for a three-year period from 2013. You pass the SKAKKE centre on your way to the centre of Etne, which is the village's cultural venue. Check out its cinema programme. There are many food and accommodation options in Etne, where you can relax after the trip. There is a Tourist Information office at Fugl Fønix Hotel.
