Magma Geopark offers excellent possibilities for cycling thanks to its small roads and low volume of traffic. The Geobike tour from Egersund to Koldal is a trip through the charatheristic anorthosite landscape in Magma Geopark. The biking route is a round trip of about 25 km through hilly terrain and will provide you with examples of local history, archeology and new industry.

 

Among the things to be seen is the mystical Stoplesteinane. Stoplesteinan consists of 16 larger boulders placed in a circle with a diameter of 21 meters. The origin of this archeological feature is still debated. A new windmill park under construction in the area gives visitors a possibility to study up close the contrast between new and old, and how we use natural resources to create energy. The highest point is about 250 meters above sea level and gives a great view over the area and the agricultural landscape.
