Bored of sitting inside after having experienced how dark a Norwegian winter is here – it’s gets worse the further north you travel – then why not get out for a walk? The beaches can be rather magical here.

HOW TO GET THERE:

1.    Take the E39 Motorway in the direction of Kristiansand until you see a sign to the Rv44 to Bryne. Come off here.
At the roundabout, go straight ahead.

2.    Continue on the RV44 until you come to Bryne. (You’ll see the Bryne Kro and Motel on your L with a mini-golf course.

3.    At the roundabout, continue straight ahead.

4.    Don’t panic as you drive through the beautiful landscape for a good while.

5.    After the sign to Nærbø on your L, keep going until you see a sign to Hå Gamle Prestegard on your R (keep your eyes peeled). TURN OFF HERE.

6.    Follow the road down and round to the R.

7.    The road leads down to the sea, where there is a car-park.

THE AREA, CAFÉ, AND GALLERY

If you fancy a walk, you can always go along the rocks and path to the Lighthouse (one can rent rooms there too, in the summer). It can be rather windy out there, so be prepared for a cold blast of air as you exit your car.

If, on second thoughts, you find it a bit too breezy, then you could always just walk up the small incline in to the house instead. The café has a nice selection of Scottish pancakes, cakes, tea, coffee plus a few other things. They do not take any cards, so take some cash. They have a price-list, calculator and a bowl where you just leave the money in. There are people there if you need to ask anything. For the children, there is a selection of green/yellow pedal-tractors outside in front of the gallery.
