Around Stokkalandsvatn lake you can enjoy an almost 4 km long walk through a landscape rich in contrasts with heather-covered hills, open grazing land and groves of trees. The reeds that grow by the lake are a type that were traditionally woven into mats and used as cladding on buildings in Jæren. The area around Stokkalandsvannet lake has a varied flora and fauna.
