Ryfylke runs from Oanes on Lysefjorden to Hordalia, a total distance of 183 km
The drive along the Ryfylke National Tourist Route is a trip full of contrasts. Here you will encounter high barren mountains, lush green hillsides, sheer mountainsides and deep fjords. The Saudafjellet Mountain displays special natural characteristics. It is rugged, brutal and unyielding, and you might find yourself wondering what on earth it was that persuaded someone to lay a road exactly here. At the Svandalfossen waterfall you can walk up the steps and really feel the force of the rushing water and the might of the cascade. Sometimes the water runs so high that the police must take charge, directing cars one at a time through the mist of spray that covers the road. It is quite an exotic experience.
At the southern point of this road you will find Lysefjorden. This fjord is perhaps most enchanting when dark clouds hover above, only penetrated by bands of golden light. Since Ryfylke National Tourist Route is a long and varied stretch of road, it is worth taking your time. There are lots of opportunities on the way to make short detours and to take a break from driving, whether you are keen to find out more about Sauda’s industrial history or just want to explore one of the lovely little shore villages such as Sand. Along this route you can take part in a salmon fishing safari and rafting, or you can set off on a hike in constantly changing terrain. The drive through Ryfylke offers a versatile experience on a challenging road with many charming aspects.
