Norwegian Scenic Route Jæren: Hiking Trails and Viewpoints

Leading along the edge of the North Sea in southwestern Norway, Norwegian Scenic Route Jæren features the country’s best sandy beaches, numerous lighthouses and cultural landmarks, as well as historic trails. The 41-kilometer route runs from the settlement of Bore in the north to Ogna in the south.

In some ways just a simple country road, the scenic route highlights some of the most unique landscape in Norway. The mostly flat terrain is incredibly fertile farmland while the white sandy beaches come as a surprise in a country that sits so far north.

While trips to the beach are typically left for warm summer days, Jæren has a lot of offer even on cold, wintry days. Protect yourself against the elements and let the landscape leave its impression on you. Surfers of all kinds (wind and kitesurfers too) will find excellent conditions and hikers will not be disappointed with the accessible trails just meters from the shore.

Tips

  • There are campgrounds all along the route. Spend a night or two and take the opportunity to hike the longer coastal trails.
  • The area has some interesting sights for history buffs. Various shipwrecks can be found and fortifications were built along the coast during World War II. One of the most interesting is perhaps “Hitler’s Teeth”, along the roadside by Brusanden Beach.
