A real treasure between Stavanger and Bergen

In Suldal, award-winning architecture and nature go hand in hand.

Like here, at the Høsebrua bridge on the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke.

The area is also fantastic for outdoor adventures. Go fishing for salmon in the rivers, join a paddling tour on the fjords, or enjoy the feeling of having the mountains to yourself.

Afterwards, you can treat yourself with a night in a dome with panoramic views of the fjords.

Make sure to visit charming Jelsa as well, one of the best-preserved fjord-side villages in Ryfylke.

Doesn't it look cosy?

Suldal combines wild nature with lively communities and award-winning architecture.

Suldal is located on the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke in Fjord Norway, a couple of hour's drive from Stavanger and Haugesund. Here, you’ll find tall mountains, deep fjords, award-winning industrial architecture, and plenty of exciting experiences for the whole family.

Suldal is the perfect base for nature lovers. Hike to the top of the mountains for some amazing fjord views and spend the night in an idyllic mountain cabin. Or fulfil your dream of fishing a huge salmon in the Suldalslågen river. In winter, you can go cross country skiing on groomed trails or freeriding in the mountain peaks.

Stroll through the lively villages, past bustling marinas and idyllic bathing spots. In the municipal centre Sand, you’ll find lovely cafés and shops in the traditional white wooden houses that line the Sandsfjord.

Suldal with Sauda has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that a destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.

As a centre for hydropower, Suldal offers impressive engineering solutions and hydroelectric architecture. You can learn all about it on the  Architectural Route, which goes from Suldal via Sauda to Røldal. In the summer, we recommend a trip to Blåsjø, Norway’s largest dam facility.
