The battle of Hafrsfjord

The Battle of Hafrsfjord (Norwegian: Slaget i Hafrsfjord) was a great naval battle fought in Hafrsfjord sometime between 872 and 900 that resulted in the unification of Norway, later known the Kingdom of Norway. After the battle, the victorious Viking chief Harald Fairhair proclaimed himself the first king of the Norwegians, merging several petty kingdomsunder a single monarch for the first time.

The bay today

Beach and recreational area in historical surroundings from the Viking period in Hafrsfjord. The area is located close to Madlaveien south of Madlaleiren. A small river from Store Stokkavatn flows through the beach area. 

Three swords in rock
When arriving at the Swords in rock monument, in Møllebukta bay, you will have plenty of time walking around taking photos. We recommend to bring some money for snacks at Is Paradis. They have tasty dishes, whether you want a burger, ice cream or cake. We continue our trip along the famous Hafrsfjord. It was here King Harald Hårfagre fought a battle that united Norway into one kingdom in 872 AD. Let the guide tell you the whole story. The track is narrow, so keep your eyes on the road. I have to admit, the trip from the Møllebukta and along the fjord, is my favourite. Nice gardens and houses, some small and some bigger ones. Very, very nice. We will leave the fjord just before the Hafrsfjord brigde and cross over to another lake, the Stokkavatnet lake. There will be a short photo stop at the petroglyphs at Fluberget. The petroglyphs were discovered in 1879. There are 170 figures and 80 pits visible today.

Heading to the lakes
We continue to the beautiful lake Stokkavatnet. The hiking trail around the water, 8 km, is very popular for runners, but also for those who just want to spend some time walking. 

Finish line, Old Stavanger
On the last leg back towards Stavanger city centre, you will see nice architecture, also some famous buildings such as Ledaal, the Royal residence in Stavanger. We will finish the trip riding through old Stavanger.
