Bike ride from Åmøy to Mosterøy

Until 1993 these islands were served by a ferry, but now the E39 passes through under-sea tunnels north from Stavanger, and the islands are linked by bridges. This makes possible a cycle ride - on mainly quiet, narrow roads - the 15 kilometers between east Åmøy, Mosterøy and Utstein Kloster, with detours along the way if you want.

the quay at east Amoy From the quay-side at Austre (east) Amoy, the road crosses Amoy, past the "Skogsti" woodland walk on the right, over the bridge to Sokn island, past the campsite and marina on the left to the bus terminal and toll booth of the E39. On a cycle track beside the E39 for 2 km over the bridge to Askje, before turning right, then left at the roundabout onto Mosteroy, past the migration period and viking remains at Vaula and the hill Mastravarden on the left to the canal between Mosteroy and Klosteroy and the hotel. Straight on to the end of the road is Utstein Kloster.
On Klosterøy is the bridge to Fjøløy and the lighthouse, on Mosterøy you can divert onto a track on the northern side, on Sokn you can divert to Bru - 2.5 km to the quay and sales of prawns and crab.
