Hurtigruten - "El viaje marino más hermoso del mundo"
This is a great hike along the nature and heritage trail that runs from the village of Åkra to the village of Ferkingstad. Cultural and historical monuments lie in abundance between Åkra and the boathouse ruins at Hop. The hike starts in the north end of the beach at Åkra. From here you can enjoy the view of the white beaches stretching along the shore. The hike follows a natural path, and along here you can see and sense a rich fauna and birdlife.
On the south end of the beach the tour continues over to a historical area, dating back to the Viking Age. Here you will see stone monuments symbolizing the two daughters of King Augvald, one of our Viking kings. The tour continues to Ferkingstad beach, another beach worth seeing.
Afterwards you will walk to the charming boat harbour, built in the 1960's. You will also visit the boathouse ruins, used by the Vikings to drag their ships ashore. The tour finishes at Fisherman's Memorial, a monument symbolizing local fishermen who lost their lives at sea.
