City Walks

Join a City Walk in Egersund with fine guides from Magma Geopark!

Get to know Egersund’s history, sites, and interesting facts about the town. Did you know why there are so many colorful houses in the town? Or that we have exciting links to, among other things, our royal family and the King of Pop Elvis Presley? You will find all this out during the walk.

City walks start every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11 at the tourist office and take approx. 50 minutes (full summer season).

If you want to take the tour on your own, you can do so by downloading the app (Android og Apple) or using a separate brochure (available at the tourist office or the Grand Hotel). If you have questions, you can contact the tourist office at  turistkontoret or Magma Geopark.
