Suldal is located in the northeastern part of Rogaland county in Norway. The area has a long history of trade connections with the Setesdal valley and on further east. The major mountain plateau trade route went east from the Suldal into Rogaland to Bykle that is located in Aust-Agder County.
Suldalslagen, which is a famous salmon river in the area flows into Sandsfjorden in the town. Located near a waterfall is the Laksestudioet. This translates to the Salmon studio. Here there is a glass wall that allows visitors to watch the trout and the salmon as they travel up river. There is also an exhibit that shows the history of fishing for salmon in the area.
Throughout the valley you can see the English heritage of Salmon Lord. There are many grand manor houses that were built along the river during the end of the 19th century.
A bit further up the river is the Kolbeinstveit Museum. The museum offers several old wooden cottages, mills, smoke houses and storage houses that were built on stilts. The Guggendal storehouse and loft are here. These date back to the year 1250.
There is a road that leads inland from the museum that will take you to the largest power station of the country, Kvilldal Kraftsasjon. On the eastern part of the river there are steep mountains located on the sides of the water. These mountains form the Suldalsporten or Suldal Gateway. They form a narrow sound before the water heads into the lake. The lake is called Suldalsvattnet and it is where the river starts.
