An easy and pleasant walk around Melsvatnet 

No plans for the weekend? You enjoy being outdoors and going for hikes in lovely surroundings?

How about enjoying a short hike around Melsvatnet, a lovely lake in the Stavanger region?

Sunny or not sunny, this lake offers nice views and is easy to access year round.

There are 2 areas for parking, this is one. Both have information about the hike and area.

The lake Melsvatnet located between Bryne and Ålgård

The hike around the lake of 4kms is rather easy, so you can do it in about 45 minutes. You can see here the map with the description.

Along the path you will find some games and ways to test your balance.

This is the view of the lake. Gorgeous, right?

The day was warm enough for us to find some kids enjoying the small sandy beaches along the lake, and trying to go in the water. Some families had taken chairs, some snacks and were happy by the lake, enjoying the view.

So, whether you want to relax with a lovely view or get some exercise and enjoy some fresh air, Melsvatnet lake is the place for you.
