We are two people going over to Haugesund for five days (Thurs to Tues) and are looking for some ideas/suggestions for hiking/walking in the area. We have booked accommodation in the city but are willing to stay on route if we can figure out a multiple day hike. Would anyone be able to recommend any hikes (1-3 days) and be able to tell us if transport to hiking/walking areas is accessible?
one great hike is to the pulpit rock outside stavanger, take the bus to stavanger for a conection to preikestole (pulpit rock) maybe stay the night and do the hick in the morning or get up really early and do a day trip.
another is going to Etne mountain, a 45 min buss ride from haugesund
smaller hikes are possible in many direction from Haugesund

it all depends on what you want to see, what your interests are and how far you want to hike.
