Kongevegen - the Royal road

Experience the history of the Jæren coast along the "Kongevegen" - thousand-year-old trails, including Holvegen and Kongevegen from the 17th century.

Parts of the hike follow partially this road and the road has therefore been named "Kongevegen" (the Royal road/King's road). Some of the ancient tracks are still visible. The beach zone is rich in cultural heritage, and the entire area is a protected landscape area. The hike can start and finish at different locations.

The most usual stretches are: 

Hå gamle prestegard – Obrestad harbour

Obrestad harbour  - Grødalandstunet

Grødalandstunet – Varhaug gamle kirkegard

Attractions along the route:

From north to the south: Hå gamle prestegård (old vicarage), a large burial ground at Hå, excavated and restored​​​​​​, Obrestad lighthouse, Grødalandstunet with buildings from the 1700s and 1800s, coal drilling monument at Grødalandsstranden, millhouse and dry house at Bodle and Varhaug old cemetery. More burial mounds along the entire beach. Parts of the area are also plant-life protected.
