Viste Beach to Hafrsfjord Bridge

This 4km beautiful coastal trail is part of the North Sea Cycle route and ideal for walking or cycling. It runs through some lovely unspoilt scenery, with an abundance of wild flowers and wild sea views. The trail passes very close to the Alexander Kjelland memorial to the people who lost their lives in the oil platform tragedy.

the path to the monument The trail is rather steep in places. Starting at Viste Beach the path goes southwards past a marina mainly for leisure boats, through some housing  and then back to the coast. The Alexander Kjelland memorial is a big links sculpture on the cliffs beside the trail. A nice place to stop and enjoy the sea views and breezes.
The trails ends just before Hafrsfjord Bridge but another trail to Revheim begins on the other side of the bridge.
