Reap the benefits of Nordic walking on a delightful hike across the Storhaug peninsula to the beaches on its southern shore. Nordic walking uses a specially designed pole that helps to maximize the benefits of the movements. It can tone the body, burn nearly 50% more calories and put less pressure on the knees and joints. Best of all, Nordic walking is easy to do. You will follow a historical, two-mile route through the city center of Stavanger, across the Storhaug peninsula and on to Godalen. The walk is only about two miles, but it is extraordinarily picturesque. Chances are, you will see bicyclists, other Nordic walkers and joggers, as the trail is as popular as it is scenic. In time, you will pause for a quintessential Norwegian snack of brunost, a brown cheese that is surprisingly sweet because the milk whey is cooked until the lactose sugars caramelize. The route back will be different but equally breathtaking.

• Enjoy the benefits of Nordic walking, which burns more calories than traditional walking.
• Follow a picturesque two-mile route through Stavanger and beyond.
• Stop to snack on brunost, a quintessential Norwegian snack of brown cheese.
