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.
