Suldal is located at the junction of two national roads: Norwegian Scenic Route Ryfylke and Norwegian Scenic Route Hardangerfjord.

Blåsjø is Norway's largest dam facility, and part of the Ulla Førre development from the 1980s, which at one time was Northern Europe's largest power development. The trip home can be made via the fjord villages of Erfjord and Jelsa. Jelsa has been named Rogaland's most idyllic city and is among the best preserved beach towns in Ryfylke. NB! Me reminds us that the road into Blåsjø is closed during the winter season due to snow.
