Follow the Fv 714 from Sandstad until you reach the intersection. Follow the sign to Forsnes. There are no stores or restaurants between Forsnes and Kvenvær, so it’s a good idea to bring some food and drink with you. This part of the route goes through a varying natural landscape. You can visit the “Bjønnhiet” that probably served as a bear lair when bears still lived on Hitra (marked by a sign). You will also cycle across the Havmyran nature reserve – the largest of the 4 nature reserves on Hitra. The reserve is 42 km2 big and covers a large heath, wetland and mire system. You will also find a myriad of small and big fishing lakes in the reserve. In 2002, the area was designated a Ramsar Site. This is a large, protected area with unspoilt mire and wetland landscape, coastal Atlantic flora and vegetation.
Kvenvær is Hitra’s only fishing village dating back to the Stone Age. Kvenvær has a grocery store, a post office, accommodation and a boat rental. Brygga Restaurant has both an indoor as well as a large outdoor section. You can taste the local beer and rent a room at Storm Brygghus. You can also rent a room and a boat at Angelamfi in Grefsnesvågen about 6 km outside of Kvenvær.
Not far from Kvenvær – towards Svankilen – you will find the Hitra Equestrian – well worth a visit for both children and adults (for more information see www.hitrahestesenter.com).
From Kvenvær to Fillan, follow the Fv 713 unil you reach the intersection with the sign to Fillan and Frøya. Here, you will enter the Fv 714, which has a lot of traffic. On your way to Fillan, you will pass the Grytelva nature reserve and Hitra Windmill Park.
