Grotlesanden beach - feel the sand on your feet
A memorable roundtrip, in beautiful surroundings packed with historical highlights. The trip starts from Florø with a drive to the town of Svelgen. This has been an industrial town for many years. Surrounded by beautiful mountains Svelgen is also a popular recreational area. The trip continues to Ålfoten, where you might get a glance of the glacier. On our way to Ålfoten we can stop at Myklebustsætra, one of the few traditional summer mountain farms still running in the traditional way. As we continue our tour the impressive Hornelen, Northern Europe’s highest sea cliff, comes in sight. It towers over 850m above sealevel and is an important landmark for ships.
Further we will visit one of the most beautiful churches in the area, Rugsund Kyrkje. The bus also passes other interesting historical areas, such as a medieval graveyard, as we continue to Grotle on the island of Bremanger. The stunning white sand beaches of Grotle are renouned throughout the region.
We continue to the charming seaside village of Kalvåg, where we have lunch at Knutholmen Restaurant which specialises in local seafood.
