Magma Geopark offers excellent possibilities for cycling thanks to its small roads and low volume of traffic. The Geobike tour around Egersund takes you to see the unique geology and the effects of Ice Age in a beautiful setting. The route is approximately 27 kilometers (3-5 hours) and offers many places where you can take a break and enjoy the scenery.
During the tour you will learn about the geology in the area and become familiar with the local culture and history while exercising. Some of the route follows the old railway tracks through coastal landscapes and past small lakes. On the way you will see places where Ice Age had affected the landscape, such as impressive erratic blocks and a moraine ridge – St. Olav´s Serpent. The highest point on the Geobike tour is 150 meters above sea level and provides a good view over a large part of Magma Geopark.
