Høsebrua Bridge

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.

Built in steel and concrete, the 29 metre long bridge weighing 23 tonnes was designed by Rintala Eggertsson Architects. The construction’s open and closed areas create a very special sensory experience, enhancing the visitor’s impressions in close contact with the foaming waters of Suldalslågen and Sandsfossen falls. In 2014, this bridge across Sandsfossen falls was named Bridge of the Year by magazine.

If you cross the bridge you will get access to a beautiful network of hiking trails. Take the round-tour along the river, convenient for people of all ages or do a more challenging hike into the hills above where you get magnificent views of the fjord village of Sand. You can find the hikes on the free hiking map of Sand.

Other attractions in the area include Sandsfossen falls, the Salmon Studio and the Suldal Tourist Information Office.
