Stage 2:
Oanes – Jørpeland

The settlements of Oanes and Forsand at the mouth of the Lysefjorden offer wonderful nature experiences. Cycling the “old road” via Kolabygda to Jørpeland, you get to experience the Lysefjord, Høgsfjord and Botnefjord. Along the way, there are a number of small hills to overcome, but the effort is rewarded with nice downhills. You cycle along fjord arms with many cozy coves and small farms. It is possible to take a detour to the islands of Idsal and Idse, or go for a walk in the Hesten nature reserve, encompassing distinctive Norwegian coastal pine forest. The Ryfylke town of Jørpeland is a natural place to have a good dinner, sleep well, and experience a typical Norwegian fjord landscape.
