Arrival to Hotel Kronen Gaard in Sandnes, check in possible from 15:00 unless else is agreed. The hotel is situated approximately 4 kilometers from Sandnes city center.
After a hearty breakfast we check out and deliver the luggage to the service car. We cycle together from the hotel towards Lauvvik, and the first leg is approx. 20km. We cycle along the Lutsi, and area with many lakes of all sizes, through pleasant scenery without many challenging parts before we arrive at the ferry dock. The ferry brings us along the scenic Lysefjord, framed with picturesque mountains on all sides. One of many highlights we pass is the "Prekestolen" (Pulpit Rock), famous landmark and used as location in Tom Cruise' "Mission Impossible: Fallout". When we arrive Lysebotn we mount the bikes and begin climbing up the 27 hairpin bends of the steep road leading us towards Sirdalen, approx. 40 km. Finally we arrive at Sirdalen Mountain Lodge where we check in and enjoy the nice facilities. Dinner at the hotel.
Another day, another leg! Our journey continues towards the coast, or Egersund to be specific. There will be a lot of downhill today, and we cycle approx. 100 km. Check in at Grand Hotel Egersund, in the heart of the city. In the evening we enjoy a good dinner at the hotel, and if you wish to explore more of Egersund you are within walking distance of most sights.
We check out and steer northwards. Today the scenery will be very different to the pervious days. We ride along the Nordsjøvegen (coastal road) and Kongevegen (Kings Road) which follows the coast of the rich farmlands of Jæren. The landscape is relatively flat, with a lot of farming and fields, and we pass several of the beautiful beaches this area is so known for. Our destination is Sola Strand Hotel, which has a fabolous location at the seaside. Dinner at the hotel.
Check out and departure. Our cycling exploration has come to an end, and it is time to go home. Hope we meet again!
