A Bike Ride to the "Three Swords" -- On a summer day we like to get the makings of a picnic and set out to see Sverd I Fjell, or the Three Swords monument at Hafrsfjord. This is the spot where King Hårald Fairhair united Norway into one kingdom in 872. In 1983 Fritz Røed created this monument, and it was unveiled by King Olav. The monument, standing as a symbol of unification, depicts Viking sword sheaths modeled on actual swords found in various parts of the country. The crowns on the tops of the swords represent the Norwegian districts that took part in the epic battle for unification. From the center of Stavanger, bike along Mosvannet Lake and continue along Rte. 510 toward Sola. Allow about half an hour to reach this monument. The area of Møllebukta itself, in which the monument lies, is a popular outdoor spot of great beauty.
