PICTURES from FORSAND

Forsand has a wealth of nature. The famous, 40 km long Lysefjord, surrounded by impressive mountains as the Pulpit Rock, Kjeragbolten has been a magnet for tourists for over 150 years. The Lysebotn road with it´s 27 hairpin curves Øygaardstøl Cafe has become another great tourist attraction, almost through coincidence; it was built as part of the power station project and not with tourists in mind.

 Pulpit Rock  
pulpit rock, preikestolen Preikestolen is no doubt the best known tourist attraction in the Ryfylke region and in Rogaland county. The characteristic mountain shelf 604 metres over Lysefjord has been visited by hundreds of thousands throughout the years.

From the Preikestolhytta, a 7 km traiI climbs the rest of the 350 metres to the top. Good shoes and physical health are necessary for the 3 - 4 hour hike. In June - August there are daily buses from the ferry quay at Tau to the cabin. You can also enjoy the Pulpit Rock from the ferries and express boats on the fjord.

BASE Jumpers are legally allowed to jump here.
