Walk around Ullandhaug

Ullandhaug is the hill about 4 km from central Stavanger with the telecoms tower.
There is a walk around the tower that takes about an hour, all on good paths, tracks or very quiet roads - ideal for combining with a trip to enjoy the views from the tower

This walk has up and downhill parts. From the car park at the bottom of the track up to the tower, walk down Ullandhaugleitet - straight on where Ullandhaugleitet turns left. After about 800m turn right at the bottom onto Sormarkveien. 500m then right again onto the main path through Sormarka - it is about 1 km back to the car park.
Go up to the tower itself for the views - on a clear day you can see for many kilometers. The botanical gardens are on the left about half way up through Sormarka to the car park, and there are many other paths to take. The Iron age farm (Jernaldergarden) is about 800m west of the car park
