- Destination: Ytre Hvaler
- Season: March–October
Stenhoggerhyttene, the “stone cutter’s cabins”, are beautifully located along Skjelsbu sound near Dypedal on Spjærøy island. Spjærøy is the islands between Vesterøy and Asmaløy, and is along the main shipping route to Fredrikstad. The cabins are located right on the water with a sandy beach which is great for swimming. On the dock, there are two rowing boats for use by tenants and it is also a great spot for some fishing.
The three cabins bear the names: Stenhoggerhytta, Klyven and the newly built, Mundastua.
The area has become Hvaler's cultural center, including the Brottet amphitheater, which is the old quarry turned into a theater. The amphitheater has a rich culture every summer with concerts and theatrical performances.
From Fredrikstad to Hvaler, take road 108. After crossing the bridge over the Skjelbu sound, there is a bus stop called: Dypedalsåsen
By car, turn off from road 108 onto Dypedalsveien and follow for 600-700 meters before heading down to the right towards the harbor.
There is a free designated parking for each of the three Stenhogger cabins. Other cars must be placed in the parking lot near the coastal museum.
The coastal path along the Hvaler Islands gives you access to large areas with direct contact to the sea, beaches and bathing areas.
