Gateway to the wilderness

Our town is known for its close proximity to the ski centre, ski runs, mountain trails and secluded lakes
... But where exactly is Sauda?

Sauda is located far east in Ryfylke at the edge of a fjord, between Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) to the west Trolltunga to the east, along Norway’s National Scenic Route and only 2.5 hours away from Stavanger by boat.
