Overview

From the tourist office, followSmith Petersens Gate towards Arendal. Continue past Grimstad Church and Grimstad Town Hall on the left, and follow the foot and cycle path across Biesletta. Cross the road by the Bieheia turn-off, and continue along the foot and cycle path on the right hand side until you reach Vikkilen. Follow the signs for Fevik. At the Vik junction, turn right and follow the foot and cycle path along route 420 towards Fevik. When you reach the 40 km/h zone, cross the road and continue along the foot and cycle path on the left hand side. After a few kilometres, where you have open views to the sea, you can see the idyllic Strand Hotel Fevik. At the very tip of the headland is Sandodden Fort. Cross over to the right hand side and follow the pavement to Fevik. Turn right at Feviktoppen, and then take the second right. Feviktoppen has a small shopping centre. Continue past Fevik Park on your left and Fevik Church Community Centre on your right. Follow the signs for Som/Haugenes. Somsveien towards Hasseltangen does not have a foot and cycle path. An alternative route is marked in blue. Please see recommended trip below. After the Haugenes junction, continue straight ahead until your reach Hasseltangen. To get to the outermost part of Hassel-tangen, follow the gravel road to the left at the very end of the car park. On your return, turn right towards Birketveit at the first junction. At the route 420 junction, turn left towards Fevik. When you have passed a riding school on your left, cross the road and follow the signs for Lunde. At the end of the road is a T-junction where you turn left towards Lia. Continue straight ahead until you reach the foot and cycle path, and follow this towards Vik/Grimstad. Just before the Vik junction, use the pedestrian crossing to get over to the right hand side and then follow the foot and cycle path underneath route 420. From here, follow the foot and cycle path back to Grimstad. Opt. 1: Turn right towards Storesand, and continue past Randvika. In the upper part of the car park, bear left and follow the main road until you reach Haugenes junction. Then turn right towards Hasseltangen. Comments: Mainly flat and gentle terrain, but parts of the trip do not follow foot and cycle paths. Some gravel roads.
