Most of the sights in Suldal are related to nature, culture and history.
Ryfylkemuseet (The Ryfylke Museum) has several local branches in Suldal, among others the rural museum Kolbeinstveit, the cotter’s farm Røynevarden – and Erfjord’s grandest farm called Hålandstunet.
At Sandsfossen you can visit one of the first Salmon Studios in Norway and watch the salmon and trout on their way up the river to spawn.
In Sand, we recommend a stop at Suldal Cultural Centre where there is a broad variety of cultural events throughout the year.
