Any hiking/walking suggestions for five day trip to Haugesund

by karla310 Online Now Aug 19, 2009 at 3:35 PM

We are two people going over to Haugesund for five days (Thurs to Tues) and are looking for some ideas/suggestions for hiking/walking in the area. We have booked accommodation in the city but are willing to stay on route if we can figure out a multiple day hike. Would anyone be able to recommend any hikes (1-3 days) and be able to tell us if transport to hiking/walking areas is accessible?

Thanks

KD

    one great hike is to the pulpit rock outside stavanger, take the bus to stavanger for a conection to preikestole (pulpit rock) maybe stay the night and do the hick in the morning or get up really early and do a day trip.
    another is going to Etne mountain, a 45 min buss ride from haugesund
    smaller hikes are possible in many direction from Haugesund

    contact norwegian trekking assiciation http://www.turistforeningen.no/english/
    mail: haugesund@turistforeningen.no (local branch)
    it all depends on what you want to see, what your interests are and how far you want to hike.
