National Tourist Route

Høsebrua is one of the stops along the National Tourist Route Ryfylke, just outside the town of Sand in Suldal. Walking across the Høsebrua bridge, you see and hear the roaring river of Suldalslågen right beneath your feet! In the winter the bridge is illuminated, creating a magical mood.

The bridge is built of steel and is 29 meters wide, and weighs 23 tonnes. It was designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects, and has a construction with an open and closed part that gives a very exciting experience over Suldalslågen and Sandsfossen. The bridge was awarded "Bridge of the Year" in 2014.

There is a great hiking area on the hillside behind Høsebrua, and a trip to the bridge can be combined with an easy hike along the river or a more demanding hike higher up in Fiskebergåsen. Here you will come to a great vantage point over the center of Sand. You can find an overview of hiking opportunities under "Hiking" in the hiking map for Sand.

Easily accessible: There are parking spaces around 100 meters from the Høsebrua. The bridge is easily accessible for those who use means of transportation such as wheelchairs and prams, where you can also get onto the bridge itself. A wide dirt road has also been laid along the river on the other side of the river. Some sections have a few meters of elevation
