About
Length: 22 kilometres - (including the walk: 25 kilometres). Level: Light Start from the Tourist Information Office and follow the cycle path along the E39 towards Kristiansand. After about 3 km, take the turn off to Tregde. A further 2 km down the road, turn off towards to Skjernoy. This is Norway's southernmost inhabited island. You will find excellent terrain here, both for walking and cycling. Cycle over the bridge and turn right at the foot of the hill to Skjernoysund. The stretch between Skjernoysund and Dyrstad is along bike paths built during the 1880s. You will also see Dyrstad School from 1877. The remainder of the ride is on busy country roads. When you come to the chapel at Farestad, turn left and follow the road back to Mandal.

A visit to Skjernøy - the southernmost inhabited island in Norway.
May 2016 • Friends
Skjernøy located about 12 km east of Mandal. Easiest access is by car. Drive to the church, where you can park your car. Make your way around the island, about 1 to 1½ hours leisurely walking. The nicest part of the trip is from Dyrstad to Skjernesund, it runs on a narrow dirt road without traffic.
Make your way up to Grotevarden, the island's highest mountain, about 105 m above sea level. Another great point for view is the Høgearden. From the parking place located at the church is approx metre 100 m to go to Amtestien, that's leads right up. Here is a coastguard station 1898 and a great view all around the horizon.
A tour around Rossnes bay is also recommendable. Start by the hanging bridge across the bay. and take approx halve a hour, perhaps a little more in some easy difficult terrain. It may in some places be wet if it has recently rained.
