The journey starts at GamlaVærket or Kronen Gaard Hotel. After 30 minutes, you can stretch your legs at one of Europe's finest beaches.

The tour then continues to Ølberg, where you can enjoy the view with a well-deserved soft ice cream. Before the route takes you past Sele- and Borestranden and into the magical landscape of Nordsjøvegen. The last beach before returning to the hotel is the idyllic Borestranden, where we recommend finishing with a refreshing swim or why not a surf lesson with one of our partners if you have the energy left?

Once you arrive, the chefs will be waiting for you, so after a well-deserved rest in historic surroundings, treat yourself to a delicious three-course dinner with something tasty by the glass while you plan tomorrow's route!
