The 7 nuts tour involves climbing on the peaks of the mountains around Jørpeland. It counts around 23 kilometres, and you must climb 1 400 meters to reach all the 7 hill tops. The mountains are not so demanding individually, but all together can be a good challenge. Click on the picture to get more information.
You can easily explore this lovely island, which is just a few minutes' walk from Villa Rosehagen. This small island is very popular among tourists and inhabitants, as a quite new attraction; since the bridge that connects the island with the town was built only few years ago. There is a great hiking road that goes around, and is suitable for both baby stroller and wheelchairs. Along the road there are many nice picnic and swimming areas. Also, you can see a bit of art there! Like 'Solspeilet'; the artwork, which is located very close on Klungsholmen, or several wooden sculptures made by a local artist.
Besides all that, there is a great opportunity to play Frisbee on Jørpealndsholmen!
