Fjord Norway Rogaland SANDNES

The 7 wolf cubs

  • +47 51859200
  •  /  km From You

A hiking trail with 7 spectacular scenic views overlooks the city of Sandnes, Gandsfjorden and the north of Jæren. On the edge of the Wolf Hills (Ulvanutane) you find His Majesty's View.
You can use the telescope provided here to get to know the city of Sandnes and its neighbouring municipalities. You can view Sola and the North Sea in the west, Stavanger and Karmøy in the north, Bryne, Klepp and Hå in the south and Bynuten in the east.

Along the trail you can find four information boards: at
Hanabanen, Crow Hill, Mindebanen and Wolf Hill. Here you can find maps over the district of Hana and information about the other districts of Sandnes.

The stairs of Hana, the world's longest city stairs, is one part of the trail. This is an attraction in itself with 306 steps straight up the mountain. The stairs were built in 1952, and this is probably the longest concrete staircase in nature.

On every hill there is an individual granite wolf cub dressed in the colours of one of the seven largest sports clubs in the city. They also have the same colours as large Norwegian football clubs as Viking, Rosenborg,
Odd Grenland and Vålerenga. The suits are also similar to the national costumes of Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden, Switzerland, Slovenia and Croatia. This is especially exciting for children.

The tables are marked with the districts in Sandnes and the seven benches are marked with the neighbouring municipalities Randaberg, Stavanger, Sola, Klepp, Time, Hå og Gjesdal. Some hills have been adapted to serve the needs of wheelchair users.
