Suldal

In Suldal, wild nature, lively communities, and award-winning architecture live side by side.

Suldal is located along the Scenic Route Ryfylke in Fjord Norway, a couple of hours 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. The area has been awarded the prestigious label Sustainable destination.

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 idyllic mountain cabins. Or fulfil your dream of catching some huge salmon in the Suldalslågen river. In winter, you can go cross-country skiing on groomed trails or freeriding from the mountain peaks.

Go for a walk in the lively villages and stroll along busy marinas and idyllic bathing spots. In the municipal centre Sand, you’ll find lots of nice cafés and shops in the typical white wooden houses along the Sandsfjord.

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