Suldal is the largest municipality in Rogaland with its 1736 km2. Large parts of this area are mountains, forests and open fields. Around a quarter of the municipality is landscape protection areas, nature reserves or other. The high mountain area in Suldal is often collectively called "Suldalsheiane", and is part of the larger area called "Ryfylkeheiane". Among other things, the Suldalsheia are home to what is the southernmost wild reindeer tribe in the world. Read more about the conservation area and the wild reindeer under the page "Berekraft".
The first day of the short holiday "In Høgheia" naturally starts with a trip to the Suldalsheiane. Here, the Stavanger tourist association has a well-developed tour network with several great tourist cabins. Stranddalen tourist cabin is one of these. The cabin is often referred to as "Perlå in Suldalsheiane" and is staffed during the summer season. During this period, you can enjoy a three-course dinner, great event and a great breakfast buffet. You can also come at other times of the year when the cabin is unmanned according to guidelines laid down by the tourist association.
The trip to Stranddalshytta can start from Saurdal or from Øvre Moen. Saurdal is a longer, but more pleasant, trip. From Øvre Moen you will save time, but there are many meters of demanding ascent at the start of the trip. Feel free to combine a trip to Stranddalen with fishing in the many fishing lakes in the area, a trip to the mountain peak Napen and swimming in the many idyllic fishing lakes. If you want a longer holiday, you can also combine the trip to Stranddalen with other great tourist cabins. In Suldal you will find, among other things, the oldest tourist cabin of the Stavanger tourist association, Bleskestadmoen, and Jonstølen, which is a tourist cabin that has won an award for its distinctive design.
Wake up to wonderful mountain air and a great view of the high mountains. Feel free to go on a trip in Suldalsheiane before you head down towards our village centres. From Napen you feel like you are on Rogaland's roof, from Snønuten you get a view of large parts of the Dyraheio landscape conservation area and on the way down from Onglanuten you can take a refreshing shower in the waterfall. You can find more information about tours in the area at visitsuldal.com and ut.no.
Down in our villages, you have a number of great hotels and cottage grounds to choose from. Here you get a well-deserved evening of relaxation, good food and good company. At Energihotellet you can enjoy a four-course dinner with a view of Suldalsvantet and access to Nesflaten's own heated outdoor pool. At Vikane hyttetun, they get their own cabin and can rent a private log close to Suldalsvatnet. Here they can also rent canoes and boats.

From the Ryfylke fjord hotel, they can enjoy a wonderful meal with a panoramic view of the Sandsfjord. You can find a full overview of accommodation options under "Eat and Stay".
In Suldal you get a number of nice nature experiences close to the villages. Every single village has developed its own hiking map, which you can get for free under "Hiking" at visitsuldal.com, at Suldal tourist information and in selected shops. From Nesflaten you can take the trip to the iconic Nipe, from Sand you can take the trip to Hellandsnuten where you get a view of five fjords and from the Ropeid peninsula, you can take the trip to Grytenuten where you can see all the way to Folgefonna. The toughest of us like to throw ourselves on the "Nutfant" experience, which consists of getting up to six selected mountain peaks in the course of a year. Read more about this arrangement under "Hiking".
