Kongeparken in Ålgård is one of most popular amusement park in Norway and the largest amusement park in the western part of Norway.
Ogna Camping is a central hub for both short and long excursions on foot, on bike, by train or car. We recommend the Jær beaches, Kongeveien, (The royal road) Pulpit rock, Steinkjerringa, Høg-jæren, lysefjorden and the rocking rock. The beautiful hiking areas along Høg-jæren with amazing panoramic view. A trip along the beaches or a small mountain trip. There are many war memorials. And great hiking trails to many of these.
Kongeveien/The royal road
Kongeveien is a 10-kilometer trail along the sea from Kvassheim to “Hå gamle Prestegard” a destination that is worth the trip in itself. The trail is well marked and split into stages.
The spectacular Lysefjord should be experienced from both the sea and the mountains with it’s world-renowned landmarks like the Pulpit rock and Kjerag

This rock formation with it`s rather unique name and appearance became a worldwide sensation after someone chopped it down in 2017. The Troll's Dick rock was re-erected to much excitement for both hikers and people who enjoy good puns.
