After breakfast, we take the bus to the Blafjell mine site. On the way there, we will take a photostop at the landmark scenic spot called Stoplesteinan, which reminds that of Stonehenge in England. After that there is a photo stop in Ruggesteinen, which is the largest movable rock in northern Europe. Lunch will then be served at Jøssingfjord and we'll also get to explore the nearby abandoned tunnel. After lunch, we visit Helleren, a natural roof and shelter - both of them date back to the 19th century. We are then ready to follow the guide to the top of Jøssingfjord, then visit Titania - one of the world's largest extant titanium mines. Finally, we take a photostop in the town of Sogndalstrand. The bus returns to Stavanger and the trip ends.
