May 2006 is the next time the streets in Nærbø will be filled with race-cars and spectators! COme and see, smell and listen to the race-cars tearing up the asphalt in the streets of Nærbø.
Jærmuseet is a unique building and has exhibitions on farming and other things. It is also situated next to the 4H farm, where you can jump in the hay (literally) and observe modern and old fashioned farming.
You can also rent the building for parties.
Traditional local food served in a clean kafe. It is situated in Nærbø Sammfunnshus (community centre).
Favorite Dish: Komla (made from pitatoes), Smalahove (sgheeps head) and Smalaføde (Sheeps feet) are the most authentic local fspecialities in Nærbø. You should be able to get one of these dishes any day.
Nærbø is easiest to go to by car or train. The station is in the middle of the central area, and the taxi-stop is close by also: Walk to the right in the underpass and cross the road, and you´ll see the red "taxi-cottage" to your right. If they´re not in, call them on the payphone there. The number is on the door of the "taxi-cottage". The bus is fine when you want to go to Nærland, but not for going to Bryne, since it uses a loooong detour.
Norway can be pretty cold, and since people have to be 18, youth travel around in tractors from age 16. You can se tractors everywhere because of this: the store, the disco, church or private parties -tractors are everywhere!
Ask a local or read a book on where to walk. The countryside is criss-crossed with small roads next to pastures and fieldls. Sometimes the road goes straight through the farm (between the house and the barn). Locals like walking to Steinkjerringå (The woman of stone) -se the picture.
Equipment: Compass can be bought at the sporting shop in the Amfi shopping centre.
