LOCAL ATTRACTIONS:

A NORWAY IN MINIATURE!

Steinsnes Camping is located three kilometers north of Egersund, a picturesque and small town, known for it's many well-preserved wooden houses from the 19th century. The pedestrianed area is packed with specialty shops, while many national brands are represented at Amfi shopping centre.

The annual "Julebyen" Christmas market is very popular, while summer is time for music festivals.

Many people associate Egersund with it's potteries. Long gone, this rich industrial history can be explored in Norway's only pottery museum.

Egersund is well worth a visit at all times of the year. Please feel free to explore the town on your own, or ask us for advice. We are more than happy to tell about hidden corners and gems!

The rest of the Dalane region, with its proximity to both sea and moors, only waits to be explored. The "Trollpikken" rock formation is located close to the town, and is easily reached after a short hour's walk from the designated car park. The paths by the Vannbassengane lakes, and Varberg viewpoint are popular hiking areas, both a short walk from Egersund town centre. The open-air areas Vandringshavn and Eigerøy Fyr are also popular destinations, both being around a 15-minute drive from the campsite. The spectacular Fotlandsfossen waterfall is within walking distance from Steinsnes Camping.

When the water temperatures allows a swim, both Vannbassengane (fresh water), Gådå (fresh water) and Skadbergsanden beach (sea) are highly recommended. All less than 15-minutes drive from Steinsnes Camping. Both in Vannbassengane and on Skadbergsanden, you can enjoy frisbee golf for free.

At the campsite we rent bicycles. A trip on the old Jærbanen (disused railway) is highly recommended. It runs through fantastic terrain along the fjord between Eigersund and Hellvik. This bike ride can be extended as needed. Please feel free to ask the reception!

For those wanting to explore the area by car, we can recommend the round trips Bjerkreim-Hunnedalen-Sirdal-Gyadalen, as well as Helleland-Jøssingfjord-Sogndalsstrand-Nesvåg. Both will fill a full day, with many beauty spots along the way.
