Byrkjedal kro - the "Candle Factory"
is a very popular stopping place between Stavanger and the skiing areas
of Sirdal, but also popular for itself. Good food, a candle shop, candle
dipping for children and a small rebuilt farm to explore outside.

the restaurant and shop a small summer mountain farm has been re-created,
as it used to be up on Giljastølen until 60 years ago.
Inside the shop, buy plain white candles then dip them in one of four different coloured vats of molten wax - to make your own coloured candles.
So many possibilities - up through Hunnedalen to Sirdal, Lysebotn or Suleskard roads; south west to Gloppedal, north west to Gilja, Frafjord and Månafossen waterfall and good walks.
This is a good place to stop on the popular Lysefjord boat and Sirdal round-trip from Stavanger.
