The cycling route through Hå offers natural scenery in an open and varied landscape; from large fields and meadows covered in grass and heather, past farms with cows and sheep, to beautiful beaches with surfing and swimming opportunities.

In Hå you can also taste local food at cafés and farm shops.

Detours

If you spend the night at Holmavatn it might be nice to start your day with a walk to Steinkjerringa og Synesvarden. Here there are magnificent views, and you get to see remnants of the heathlands that used to cover large parts of Jæren.

When cycling through Hå, take a popular detour down to Varhaug's old churchyard, and enjoy the calm and high skies at Varhaug chapel. Further south in Hå we recommend a short detour to the lighthouse at Kvassheim.
