Greetings from the mayor

The summer is a perfect time for adventures, having enjoyment and priceless moments with the people with whom we share our lives. Bright evenings and long days allow both work and leisure to be combined with excursions, family time and new acquaintances.

Eigersund municipality is decorated and made ready. An easily accessible coastline. Short and long walks both along the sea and in the mountains. Unique attractions. And a cozy and attractive small town awaits you, whether you come on a short or long visit. We set for ourselves high standards of hospitality, courtesy and friendliness. Expect something extra. Welcome!

A chuckling visit to Trollpikken is almost unavoidable. That image is almost mandatory on the profile in social media. The trip is short and suitable for both large and small, and within a short distance of downtown Egersund. You can do the trip on your own, or choose a guided tour. Before and after the trip it is just a short distance to food, shopping and services downtown.

The attractive Egersund town blossoms in the summer, and in the niche shops, chain stores and Amfi shopping center you will find a wide range of products and choice service. The eating places provide the cozy atmosphere both daytime, evening and weekend. A compact town also offers a new climbing park in Årstaddalen, the lookout point at Varberg, the pools and wharf edge along the harbor. A visit in Egersund will be a good experience for both large and small.

The activities are lining up for summer 2018 with church concerts, candy making, city walks and guided tours. Bike rentals are easily accessible if you want to experience the biking city Egersund on two wheels. The festival town Egersund offers the Lighthouse Festival, Dalane Blues Festival, The Egersund Week, Fisheries Day and the Egersund Song Festival. Something for every taste, and with a guarantee to have fun.

A lovely nature and a unique landscape provide a wealth of opportunities. The beaches at Skadberg and Hellvik, as well as the Water Pools and the River Park, provide great opportunities for swimming and recreation. The Eigerøy lighthouse and the trail from Egersund to Hellvik, Auglend and Hestnes provide hiking opportunities in the coastal landscape. It is also a perfect starting point for picnics, fishing and catching small crabs along the rocky beach. A trip in Egersund wind park gives a good view and a beautifully prepared hiking terrain. A drive via Helleland, Terland Klopp and Gya gives the experience of majestic mountains and a unique cultural landscape.

Whether you come by the Jærbanen train line, car, bicycle, motor home or caravan, you will experience Eigersund as easily accessible. Accommodation options are tailored to your wishes.

All you need to know about activities, accommodations, dining, hiking possibilities and attractions can be found on, or by visiting the tourist information on the internet or in downtown Egersund.     

We fill our lives with experiences.

With best regards,
Odd Stangeland
Mayor of Eigersund Municipality
