Overview
Details

The Hove-Spornes area is part of a protected moraine that lies along the southern coast, and is adapted for walks with resting places along the shore.

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.


The paths are many and stretch 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.

Spornes beach is situated on the south side of Tromøy, close to Hove. Here you can experience a stunning view towards the Skagerrak, and there is also a sandy beach as well as a pebbled beach.

Hove maps at Arendal tourist office, Hove camp, and Bjellandstrand Gård. Parking for instance at Hove camping and Hove camp. Bus no 103 to Tromøy Øst leaves Arendal every hour during the day, Monday-Saturday.
