Hamrane Hyttefelt
Prekestolen Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) in the Lysefjord
This dramatic cliff, which rises a sheer 600 metres above the Lysefjord, is one of Norway’s largest tourist attractions. It is situated not far from Hamrane Hyttefelt.

The Lysefjord area is magnificent and unique. In addition to walks to the top of Pulpit Rock, we also recommend sightseeing tours by boat on the Lysefjord. There are a number of companies offering these. The mountains surrounding the fjord are also renowned as one of the world’s premier base-jumping spots – and at Kjerag you may well witness someone throwing themselves into the abyss
  Topphona   Pulpit Rock is a very popular hiking destination, but our area also offers many other attractions and activities.

    If you visit Mølleparken (the mill park), you can gain fascinating insights into local history and culture. This old mill at Tou Mølle was in use from approx. 1800.  
    The petroglyphs at Solbakk, dating back 2500 years, are a must-see attraction. There is also a millennium monument here, which contains one stone from each of the properties within the Municipality of Strand.  
    Your hosts Elisabeth and Magne Jakob Bjørheim are sheep farmers, in addition to catering to the guests at Hamrane Hyttefelt. Many visitors, especially children, enjoy the lambs and sheep that graze the landscape nearby the cabins.

There is excellent fishing in Bjørheimsvatnet lake, as well as in the fjord (at Tau, 8 km).

Stavanger is a European Capital of Culture in 2008. Hamrane Hyttefelt is an excellent base from which to combine natural attractions and wilderness adventures in the Ryfylke region, with the many cultural events and activities scheduled for the Stavanger region.
