In the Saga of Olav the Holy, we can read: ‘Coal-black ships sailed swiftly forward over Hådyr’s sea off Lista. Inside the harbor of Eikundasund, the sea was black with large ships.’ Follow County Road 33. There is a designated parking area by the road. The walk to Hådyr takes about 45 minutes. The reward is a spectacular view.
