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.

 Kjerag mountains  
kjerag The Kjerag mountains rise majestically 1000 metres above the innermost part of the Lysefjord, offering a stupendous view of Lysebotn and the Lysefjord. One attraction is Kjeragbolten, a boulder wedged into a crack in the mountain. The trail from Øygardsstøl by Lysevegen road above Lysebotn is demanding.

Innermost in the magnificent Lysefjord lies the village of Lysebotn, the perfect base for exploring the fjord and nearby mountains. Lysebotn power station, experience at close hand how Lysefjord´s waterfalls are turned into electrical energy.
