Overview

From Kristiansand in the south to Haugesund in the north, this renowned coastal route treats you to magnificent and varied views of the North Sea. After leaving the town of Kristiansand, head northwest. You will soon leave behind the gentle landscape of Southern Norway and enter into Fjord Norway proper. The North Sea Road climbs as it winds its way past the dramatic Jossingfjord. It continues to Egersund, a major fisheries and ferry port. Further northwards are miles and miles of rough-hewn terrain that finally yield to the wide expanses of Jaeren. Here, as far as your eye can see, are cultivated fields and sand dunes, and beaches covered with sand or pebbles. The North Sea Road continues into lively Stavanger, European City of Culture in 2008. You can continue by ferry to the charming fishing village of Skudeneshavn on Karmoy. A little further, at the end of the journey, lies Haugesund, with a memorial to Harald Fairhair, who in 872 gathered Norway into one kingdom.

Driving the North Sea Road is such a wonderful experience. Driving through the mountains and the "Troll" landscape, with the narrow rocky roads, towards the farm landscape in Jaeren - but if you´re an unsteady driver you should only be a passenger this time. Witnessing...More

A fantastic route that we always show our friends no matter they visit us or move into this country. Along the route you can see many different sceneries of Jaeren (the Plain). A must trip if you're visiting Stavanger.

Land, sea, sky. The sea, the dunes, the coastline, the small houses, the walls of stones make this landscape unique. It always generates strong sensations and emotions of space, nature, loneliness and peace, but also of extreme power like during stormy weather conditions. Recommended all...More
