Tips, hints and links

The trailhead to Ritland Crater is a short detour from Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke. In Hjelmeland, look for the sign to “Ritlandskrateret” just before you reach the ferry dock and turn right onto Vågavegen Road.
Follow this road out of town and after about 17 kilometers, turn right towards Kleivaland. Drive for 2 kilometers to the end of the road and park in the marked area.
