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.

 Flørli Steps  
flørlitrappa, floerlitrappa, floerli steps Today, Flørli is a small, abandoned industrial settlement situated in Lysefjord. The story behind the hydroelectric power station, the water pipes feeding the station and the 4444 steps built along the water pipes, supposedly the longest wooden steps in the world. The last resident of Flørli left in 1999, but lately people have been moving back and are creating an area of cultural activities.

Many enthusiasts are currently working to bring new life to the village, based on outdoor recreational activities and culture. Flørli is for the active, but is also a place where you can relax and take things easy.
