Good place for walks/short hikes between Lauvvik to Airport

Hi,

I've arranged my itinenary on my final day, where I will take a car ferry from Lyseboth to Lauvvik, arriving at Lauvvik 16:35pm. The drive to the Airport (according to Google Map) is only 40 minutes and I don't need to be at the airport until 6:30pm (2 hours before flight at 20:30). Is there somewhere we can go around the area that's good for a short hike / walks, that's very beautiful & scenic? Thanks.

Thank you Pippi! I've been to Old Stavanger, and now I see that you can Surf at Jaeren beach! I probably don't have time, but do you know if there's a place to rent boards and suits at Jaeren beach?

Best,

Shah

I feel uneasy about your itinerary. You have less than 2 hours. Time estimates on sites like Google maps are unreliable, and you also need time to travel to where you choose to go.

I've never been there but the village of Hommersak looks nice on Google Street View and there appears to be a 'friluftsomrade' (public access area) marked in green just north west of the village which should be idyllic for a walk beside the fjord. It's only short diversion off your route to the airport.

Taking your drive to the airport in consideration you don't really have much more than an hour to while away - that time of day is rush hour and I would recommend being very close to the airport so you don't risk getting stuck in traffic and stressed. So Sola beach gets my vote - you haven't time for surfing anyway - just a strole along the beach would get you plenty of fresh air and charge you up for the flight.

The Fjord1 ferry timetable arrives Lauvvik at 1430hrs. Is this not the one you are taking?

Thanks all. After taking everything into consideration, I think Sola beach would be the best. You're right that I don't have much time.

Norsc - I am taking the Kolumbus Ferry from Lysebotn f.kai 15:30 arriving 16:35 Lauvvik Batkai.

Solastrand is too much like a windswept east coast UK beach for my taste. Hommersak is a typical Norwegian small town on a sheltered fjord coast, quite unlike anything at home. But anyway, you are right not to cut things too fine on the way to the airport.
