The National Tourist Route Jæren connects Bore and Flekkefjord (formerly routes 507 and 44), and is one of 18 road sections in Norway officially designated as a National Tourist Route. The cultural landscape along the National Tourist Route Jæren (also often called Nordsjøvegen) is endlessly beautiful. Here you’ll experience open skies, the sea, sand dunes, pebbled beaches, panoramic views and the unique and beautiful light of Jæren.
Jæren is considered Norway’s bread basket with intensive agriculture in the extensive flatlands that enjoys mild weather year-round. The coast along Jæren faces the North Sea and has long been considered one of the most dangerous coastlines in Norway. There is no protective archipelago, and the sea currents can be fierce. Construction of the many lighthouses along the Jæren coast began in the mid-1800s. They served to guide ships and ensure safe passage in rough weather, darkness and fog. Of the many lighthouses, Kvassheim, which was completed in 1912, was the last to be constructed.
