A cruise along Hylsfjorden

Green Travel

Every summer, Helgøy Skyssbåt invites you on a trip along Hylsfjorden to experience the flat calm waters and admire the high mountain peaks and idyllic villages. The Hylsfjorden fjord is selected as one of the areas in Rogaland county of particular national value.

During the trip you will get an insight into the fjord and its fjord villages by two local guides. Into the fjord you have two choices:

Option 1:

Follow the boat into the end of the fjord and enjoy a local musical performance with nature as its backdrop. After the trip you get two hours to explore the fjord village and municipality of Sand with charming cafes, shops, a salmon studio and its own museum.

Option 2:

A small trip into the fjord you hike almost 300 meters up the hillside to the historical farm, Litunet, managed by Ryfylkemuseet. Here you get a guided tour and panoramic views of the fjord.

The boat will pick up passengers from several of the boat quays in the Ryfylke area. Read more about the cruise at
