Overview
Details

The popular tourist road Lysevegen in Forsand in Ryfylke goes from Lysebotn innermost in the Lysefjord to Sirdal. The road was built as a works road during the building of the Tjodan hydroelectric power station and was officially opened in 1984. Prior to that, boats were the only regular means of communication with the outside world for people in Lysebotn.

From Lysebotn the road first passes through a 1,100 metre tunnel before continuing up to the mountain round a series of 27 hairpin bends. At the top of the ascent (640 metres) lies the Øygardstøl panorama restaurant and the car park for the walk up to Kjerag.

The highest point on the road is by Andersvatn lake, 950 metres above sea level.

See the trip from Lomeland to Lysebotn in the spring on youtube.

The road is open during the period May to October/November (depending on snow conditions). The Lysevegen is part of the well-known Suleskarroad from Telemark via Setesdal and Sirdal to Stavanger. Lysevegen is also part of National Biking Route 2 - only for the tough, but so rewarding!
