This is a journey through an open cultural landscape along the edge of the North Sea. Here, the sky is high, the horizon is wide and the sea is endless. The route passes through well-tended agricultural land. The dry stone walls are part of the cultural heritage, but have kept their function. Take time out for a stroll along one of the numerous beaches.

Short detours to beaches covered in boulders or miles of golden sands provide a memorable impression of the ocean and the coastline, especially in stormy and torrid weather. Coastal culture has left a distinctive imprint on the area, and many of the lighthouses along the weather-beaten Jæren coast are well worth a visit.

National Tourist Route Jæren runs from Ogna to Bora over a total distance of 41 kilometres.
