HIKING ON THE JÆREN BEACHES

The beaches on Jæren (Jaeren) are in total a 100 km coastline with sandy beaches, pebbles and rocks. 

The coastline between Hellestø and Sola beach might be the most varied and exciting walk. The trail goes trough a landscape with sandy beaches, fascinating rocks, marshes and fields.

If you choose the trail from Strandhuset to Vigdel beach, we recommend to take a small detour to see the "stone face" (steinansiktet").

Strandhuset at Ølberg is a perfect start and ending point for your hike to Sola beach (north) or to the beaches south of Ølberg beach - Vigdel beach and Hellestø beach. In Strandhuset you can pick up a few hiking suggestions.

We hope you will enjoy a great nature experience on on or two the beautiful Jær beaches we have in this region.

COSTAL WALK TO VIGDEL BEACH

This hike takes approximately one hour from Strandhuset to Vigdel beach and back. It depends on how long you will stop to enjoy the nature around, the breaking waves and the rocks that have been formed by the sea for thousands of years, study the fauna or just go for a swim at Vigdel beach! 

Steady sneakers or good hiking shoes are recommended. It might be slippery and wet on some rocks if it has been raining. 

COSTAL WALK TO SOLA BEACH

This hike takes approximately 2 hours from Strandhuset to Sola beach (to the beach hotel) and back. It depends on how pauses you take along the shoreline to admire the stunning sea wiew, study the landscape, take pictures; or if you`re going for a swim in the North Sea! 

 Steady sneakers or good hiking shoes are recommended. It might be slippery and wet on some rocks if it has been raining.
