Stangnes

About

Utterly located on Levang, totally out at sea, you will find Stangnes. The property was by the end of the 1960s bought by the state and municipal to serve as a recreational area. In between the polished rocks and the soil patches, stands a small two storey house. It was built by the  end of the 1870s, and have been a home for fishermen through many many years. Today Kragerø and Oppland Tourism Association disposes this property. On the road to Portør, Portørveien, there will be a sign that shows the driveway to Stangnes. There is a car-parking area right before entering this beautiful location and made so that the tranquility is secured. The trails are short and easy to walk to reach this idyllic seaside. The small house is during summer, open every Saturday and Sunday and the Tourism Association provides coffee and freshly baked Norwegian waffles.

A great place the whole year! Stangnes is an exiting place to visit, ​not just in the summertime, but the whole year you can enjoy this beautiful landscape by the coast and be astoniched over the power of Nature, while listening to the waves rolling and crashing against the shore. Pack a lunch, thermos of coffee, warm clothes, good hiking shoes and a windproof jacket!

Geopark
In 2005, Stangnes became a part of the European Geo Park. The polished rocks on Stangnes is extremely old, more than 1,5 billion years and considered the bedrock of prehistoric era on earth.
