The cultural trail on Bru

Bru is the neighboring island to Sokn and is within walking and cycling distance from the campsite. Where there is no bike and walking path, the route goes on lightly trafficked small roads.

Easy hike in a beautiful cultural landscape that is suitable for everyone on most days of the year. Especially great for families with children, as there is a lot to see and do along the trail and in the small woods you pass through. The trail is marked with posts with red tops.

The entire round trip is about 5 km. The distance from the campsite to the start of the hike is 2.5 km. It is nice to walk from the campsite, but it is also possible to park at the start of the trail.

Fjøløy fortress

For over 70 years, the 270-acre area of Fjøløy has been closed to the public. The fortress was established by the Germans in 1941 and taken over by the Norwegian military in 1945. The area served as a coastal fortress until 1999 and as a training ground until 2009. In 2011, it was converted into an outdoor recreational area.

Fjøløy holds many memories from the days of the war. While hiking in the area, you can experience old cannons, barracks, and bunkers in a beautiful landscape with a great view. The hike from the parking lot to the cannon positions takes only 10 minutes, and for someone who has not experienced the horrors of war, it makes a strong impression to see these installations.

Another great experience is the trip out to the Fjøløy lighthouse. The lighthouse was established in 1849 as a fishing lighthouse and was automated in 1977. In 1983, the lighthouse was replaced by a light beacon. Both the lighthouse and the surrounding buildings are well-preserved, and it’s like a small museum out here in the open sea. You can almost see how rough the weather can be on stormy days.

Trail: Hiking trails of varying lengths. Worth seeing: Fjøløy Fortress and Fjøløy Lighthouse.
