inside the zinc mine
Description: The zinc mines - Sinkgruver i Allmannajuvet - were opened in 1881 and closed down in 1889. The path up to the mines and some of the mine shafts and lower levels have been restored, and can be visited with a guide from Sauda Ferie & Fritid - the tourist information office in Sauda. This is a great attraction, and a lovely walk by the river, with waterfalls, to get there. Children (from about 4 years old) will find it exciting and adults should find it interesting.

worth a visit for waterfalls
