Overview

The Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke through Ryfylke is one of the longest of Norway's 18 Scenic Routes. The route through Ryfylke – from Oanes by the Lysefjord to Hårå in Røldal – is 260 kilometres long and travels Rv. 13 and Fv. 520.

The Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke through Ryfylke is one of the longest of Norway’s 18 Scenic Routes. The route through Ryfylke – from Oanes by the Lysefjord to Hårå in Røldal – is 260 kilometres long and travels Rv. 13 and Fv. 520.

Norway’s Scenic Routes offer exceptional scenic experiences, passing through some of the country’s most magnificent landscapes. Along the way are viewpoints and picnic areas, designed to enhance the pleasure of travellers and to fit in with the surrounding scenery. The Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke is an exciting encounter with the very best of Fjord Norway – with stunning fjords, a myriad of beautiful islands and islets, forests, heathlands and lush farmland, sheer cliffs, screes and boulder fields, and a cultural landscape that tells of Ryfylke’s long history.

Ryfylke’s three most famous attractions are the Lysefjord, the Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and Kjerag. As you travel the scenic road you will discover picnic areas set in beautiful surroundings, and cultural monuments that are centuries or even thousands of years old.

Your journey starts at Oanes in the south, overlooking the mouth of the Lysefjord. From the lodge Preikestolen Fjellstue, slightly further northeast, you can take a rewarding hike to the top of Preikestolen (a two-hour walk). A little further north you will find petroglyphs at Solbakk and Årdal old church. Skomakarnibbå rises high above the southern shore of the Jøsenfjord.

On the last leg to Røldal in the north, you can drive accross the Røldalsfjellet mountains or follow the valley through Suldal and Nesflaten.

On the souht side you find the fjordside village of Jelsa, with its old wooden houses and distinctive church, are well worth a detour. Then you can pause at the picnic area overlooking the Lovrafjord, before you continue to Sand. In this village do visit Ryfylke Museum, and stop at the Salmon Studio at Sandsfossen falls to watch powerful salmon swim upstream to their spawning areas and cross the new Høse bridge. Relax with a cup of coffee and savour the panorama from the café. During summer you can visit the museum farm Kobeinstveit with activities for the entire family. Make a stop at Nesflaten where you can learn about hydro power and visit the design hotel Energihotellet.

On the north side of Sandsfjord, just before you reach Saudasjøen, is Svandalsfossen falls. A series of stairs climb up close to the waterfall – you can really sense the force of the water! Near the town of Sauda you can visit the zinc mines at Allmannajuvet. New buildings opened at Allmannajuvet in 2016, designed by Swiss architect Peter Zumthor. In Sauda town centre you can enjoy friendly shopping.

From Sauda and Allmannajuvet the journey continues to Røldal. The road over Saudafjellet, which takes you through a varied landscape and a 900-metre high mountain pass, was completed in 1960. The scenery is magnificent and parts of the road are quite narrow, so please take your time. Saudafjellet pass, on Rv. 520 between Hellandsbygd and Røldal, is closed in the winter when the snow can pile up to five–six metres thick! During winter use the alternative route Sand–Røldal along Rv. 13, where freely grazing goats may share your road.

This summer route is part of the Fjord Road from Sandnes in the south, through Hardanger and Vikafjellet, and northwards to Førde. The Fjord Road comprises two additional Norwegian Scenic Routes: Hardanger and Gaularfjell.

To get here: To reach the Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke from the south, take either the Lauvvik–Oanes or Ryfast tunnel from Stavanger to Solbakk. From the north you can drive via Røldal. If you arrive from eastern or southern Norway, via Suleskar, we strongly advise you book a space well in advance on the popular Lysefjord ferry, from Lysebotn to Oanes.
