Høllandsfossen waterfall in Sauda

Hollands waterfall is in the town of Sauda, in the northern part of Rogaland county, in the Ryfylke area of south west Norway.
The Sauda area has many waterfalls - and electricity from water is a main resource for the area.

Høllandsfossen The waterfalls are beside the road which goes from the centre of Sauda up to Åbødalen. An old bridge at the bottom end of the falls forms a perfect picture frame for the falls.
To get a good photo, you need to get down near the river below the falls - and there are some steps over the wall to help you down.
It is just a few minutes walk from here to the Åbøbyen workers house museum - Åbøbyen is just the other side of the river.
