Description

National Tourist Route Ryfylke is one of 18 tourist routes developed through a Tourist Route project in Norway. The goal of National Tourist Routes is to make Norway a more attractive tourist destination and to strengthen the industry and population in the districts. Tourist Route Ryfylke stretches from Oanes in Lysefjord, to Håra in Røldal, and was established as the National Tourist Route prior to the 2012 season.

In total it is 183km long, and presents beautiful varied and lush landscape with green sheltered islands and agricultural landscapes, separated with rocks, mountains and fjords. Along the way you pass villages, towns and cultural attractions like old industrial buildings and the abandoned 19th century zinc mines at Allmannajuvet.

Along the Svandal waterfall by Fv 520 in Sauda, a stair-hike featuring modern architecture is available, giving you the chance to experience the waterfall up close. The ferry stop at Ropeid has a waiting room with daunting design. Above Sandsfossen waterfall in Sand, there are plans for a walking bridge designed by Sami Rintala.

During the 2012 season, National Tourist Route Ryfylke will be further developed, with extra focus on more and better signposting along the route.
