Suldalsporten

Mountains
Waterfall/river

If you drive Rv13 along Suldalsvatnet, there is a great photo-stop at the western end of the lake. It’s a motif that has been portrayed on many postcards through the years.

 

Suldalsporten, a striking narrowing of the lake between two cliffs. This was a highlight for 19th-century tourists who travelled a popular route that included crossing Suldalsvatnet by steamer.

 

There is an ancient prophecy that when seven sisters marry on the same day, and the wedding procession returns in rowboats from church, that the cliffs of Suldalsporten will collapse into the water.
