This beautiful beach is not accessable by car, and thats great. You will need to do some hiking. Go to the beach or do the Ryten hike with beautiful views over the small bay/beach.

There are two ways to Kvalvika, one is an easy route, 4 km there and back with a low incline. A good route for beginners or those carrying camping gear. The other way is much harder. It is a steep incline, more technical, and has...More
