For a great view, Lifjell is one of the best viewing points in northern Jæren. From the top, you can enjoy magnificent views of Stavanger, the Gandsfjord, the North Sea and Ryfylke. Going up from Hommersåk gives you an amazing view of Riska and Strandalandet. One way from Hommersåk. From the parking: A gravel road winds its way to the top and it's a bit steep at the beginning, however, constantly delivers good vantage points towards Hommersåk and Strand. Great views in all directions from the top.
