The North Cape

If you start at the football pitch at Svanøy Røykeri, the path first passes ruins and shafts from the mining era. After each quarter, you come out into a slightly more open landscape before you follow the shoreline back and finally arrive at the Leiren. Nice trip for families, but with some short, wet sections.

Time: 30 min

Austnest

Round trip with viewpoint on Austneståa. The northern route is quite damp, but luckily the southern route is nice enough to go twice!

Saw water

Nice path that follows the water from Svanøy Havbruk to Erikstadbrua. Sagvatnet is the source of drinking water on the island. We ask hikers to take this into account.

North Sea Trail

The entire North Sea Trail runs from Svanøybukt and back. The stretch between Strandsbøen and Kvalstad is very humid, so an alternative route is recommended here if you do not have suitable footwear.

Nova

View towards Kvalstad and Stavfjorden.
