Ryfylke is characterised by stately mountains, deep canyons, and some of the coolest rock formations you've ever seen, situated hundreds of metres above sea level.
The most famous is Lysefjorden, a narrow fjord surrounded by steep cliffs. Take the hike to Preikestolen (the Pulpit Rock), a square cliff 604 metres over the fjord, or venture to Kjerag to see the famous Kjeragbolten, a round rock that is wedged in between two mountains.
There are also fantastic hiking opportunities on the heaths between the viewpoints, whether you plan to hike from cabin to cabin or pick a base where you can do shorter day-trips.
In Suldal, wild nature, lively communities, and award-winning architecture live side by side. Not to forget the fantastic salmon river Suldalslågen!
When it’s time to give your legs a break, you can look forward to a magnificent car or bus ride along the Ryfylke Scenic Route. Take a seat and marvel at the wild fjord landscape and some of the finest rest areas in Norway. You can also visit some of the region’s islands, where the climate is mild enough for palm trees!
