The Hove area is one of Norway’s culture and nature treasures. The moraine-zone was created for more than 10 000 years ago.

We can see what’s left of the land ice here at Hove. At the inside we find a forest that moderate the high wind from the sea. One of our paths goes along with this forest. «Troll-path», as many people use to call it – you have the impression of Troll forest with the twisted pinewoods and the dark overhanging trees.

People populated the area in the bronze age (about 4000 years ago), and the 97 registered barrows hidden in the forest is an evidence of just that.

This is an old Viking area you are about to enter. Hove farm, the legend has it that it farm was owned by the viking Storvik – the farm was headquarters for a «godsitting» for about 1000 years ago.

Arendal council bought the Hove area from the government in 1999 on one condition. It should be a free territory for all users, small and big, and people with a handicap of movement.
