Hjelmeland – Songesand – Forsand – Hjelmeland
120 km, 1 ferry (must be booked in advance for vehicles).
A ferry trip on the Lysefjord with its beautiful villages and uplands make this trip a real adventure. The village of Årdal, with Årdal old church and the Eventyrskogen fairytale forest, the ride across the rocky highlands called Lyngsheia, the ferry cruise underneath the Pulpit Rock and last but not least the Ryfylke town of Jørpeland.
On the Lyngsheia, consider a small detour to the Rykandfossen waterfall and the farm of Åse from where you have a great view on the Årdal valley and the hamlet of Nes.
The road to Songesand might be closed during the winter depending on conditions.
