On the journey along the Sand safari trail, you'll get up close to the fjord, river, waterfall, historic buildings, and rural life. Along the route, you'll also find various QR points that provide insights into the rich history of the coastal town, including priests, stave churches, major fires, salmon lords, and the construction of power stations.
The tour starts from the "North End" in the center of Sand, along the fjord, and continues up near the river mouth to the famous salmon river, Suldalslågen. Here, you follow the river upstream, passing Sandsfossen, the Salmon Studio, and the award-winning Høsebrua. From Høsebrua, you can take the route on both sides of the river up to Garaneset before continuing up to Eide, where you pass by Sand School, sports facilities, and the beautiful Suldal Bath. The return trip to Sand offers several magnificent viewpoints overlooking Sandsfjorden. You can start the route wherever you prefer.
For those who want a longer hike, you can combine Sand safari with a hike in the trail network in Fiskebergåsen or Stegåsen. From Fiskebergåsen, you'll have a fantastic view of the entire town center, while from Stegåsen, you can reach Hellandsnuten, where you have a view of five fjords. You can also continue the hike along the trail further up the river from Garaneset.
