Attraction along Ryfylke


The rest area at Ostasteidn emerges on the west side of Sandsfjorden, immediately after the Sandsfjord Bridge. The viewpoint is situated in the landscape where Norwegian artist Lars Hertervig found his motives, and the architecture at the area is inspired by Hertervig’s art. A walkway leads to seating facilities facing north with a beautiful view of Sandsfjorden, or to a bench by the rock, offering natural shelter from nortwestern winds. The characteristic toilet building has been painted with a moss blend, so that in time it will have a moss-covered surface.

Wheelchair accessible.

The toilet building is open all year round.
