“Where the sea meets the farmland”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

Jaeren is actually a misplaced attraction as it actually stands for a whole region some 100 km long and about 10-15 km wide with lot of small communities and towns. The variety here is abundant, the beautiful scenery of undulating landscape and farmland that ends with a sea, the lighthouses, the sand dunes and beaches and the rolling boulders beaches (unlike Denmark), the "flag trees" (bend in one direction by the wind), then the prehistoric monuments from the Viking era, architecture of old farmhouses and "stone fences", the small and old churches, the small industrial monuments, and the tracks after World War II. So, there are many museums and attractions to visit. All in all, for Norway a special region, that stands out in more than one way.

“A little Denmark looking...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2012

A little Denmark looking landscape between Stavanger and Egersund. Flat landscape with beautiful sandy beaches and a great cultivated soil. Lots of stonewall between the farms that's still left. A huge contrast between the ocean and mountains...

“A little bit of Denmark in Norway”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2011

Long white beaches, flat green farmland with the mountains as a background. Pictoresque roads to drive in a lazy tempo.It is hard to believe it is really Norway. Here you can surf in the morning and go skiing in the snowy mountains in the afternoon.
