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.

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.

The road which winds through 27 bends from Lysebotn to the mountain - engineering at its best. Lovely views over Lysebotn and the fjord.

BASE Jumpers are legally allowed to jump here.
