    Though Håkonshella is a bit "off the beaten path", there is a bus that goes there on it's return from the island of Bjorøy. The rout is run by HSD no. 433-439. Ask for information at the main buss-station.

    By car you follow the signs first to Loddefjord, then to Alvøen. A couple of km’s before Alvøen there is a sign to Håkonshella. It’s a small dead-end road and very narrow. Drive all the way to the end where there is a turn-about. You can’t park in the turn-about, but drive a little way back and park on the roadside. The memorial is about a 200 m walk from the turn-about.

Håkonshella Off The Beaten Path

    King Håkon the 7th unveiled the memorial stone in 1921. The stone is a monument in remembrance to a great King with the same name, king Håkon the Good.
    He was born here and died here too. He came sailing past here after one of his many fierce battles, and went ashore. His wounds were so great that he died.



    The spot is a bit “off the beaten path” just outside Bergen. You can drive there in about 15-20 minutes, and there is a city bus that stops by there a few times a day. See my transportation tip.
