Level 3: Active - good mobility needed
A helmet and a bottle of water will be handed out after the safety brief. Participants must sign a disclaimer. Wear comfortable walking shoes and clothes suitable for that day’s weather.
Our guided tour begins with a ride through the center of Haugesund and along Haraldsgaten, one of Norway’s longest pedestrian streets. Our e-bikes make cycling easy, as we coast north to Haraldshaugen. Norway’s national monument stands on what is believed to be the burial site of Harald Fairhair, the Viking king who unified Norway into a single kingdom in 872.
There will be plenty of time for photos and to hear the stories from the past before we set off along the coastal path again. We’ll pedal past small lighthouses and idyllic bathing spots until we reach Kvalsvik, where the four horses of Jason DeCaires Taylor’s thought-provoking sculpture ‘The Rising Tide’ stand in the water.
Absorb the scenery and take a few photos before cycling back to Haugesund.
