Burial mounds and the Eye in stone(Øye i stein) (SOL5)

Directions

Take the E10 direction Lødingen. At Austre Kanstad take the 837 direction to Offersøya. At Rindbø continue straight on road 691 towards Offersøya. Follow the road, past the exit to Offersøya, to the parking lot at the exit to the farm Hustad. The distance from Austre Kanstad to the parking lot at Hustad gård is approx. 38.6 km.

The start of the cultural trail down to the sculpture Øye i stein, and the burial mounds, is in the turn about 230 m further along road 691.

Vestbygda is otherwise idyllic in itself, so it's worth the trip. Sea, beaches, swabs, crushes, farms and small white houses make this area reminiscent of both southern Norway, Lofoten and what it is; a lush northern Norwegian peasant community. :-)
