Waterfall/river

On an unrushed visit to Sandsfossen on a late summer day, you will definitely want to witness salmon jumping up the waterfall! If you are lucky, you may even spot one of the really big salmon, weighing over 10 kg, making its way upstream to spawn.

 

Sandsfossen falls is situated not far from the mouth of the Suldalslågen river, near the village of Sand and right next to the National Tourist Route Ryfylke. The waterfall is quite impressive even though it only has a drop of five metres. There is a Salmon Studio at the falls, and visitors can watch the salmon through two large windows.

 

A fish ladder was built in 1987, one year before the Salmon Studio, to facilitate the annual salmon migration.
