Hyllestad is situated on the north side of the Sognefjord and is surrounded by beautiful scenery. Hyllestad is known for its production of millstones, an industry that lasted for almost 1,000 years. Now you can travel back in time and experience Kvernsteinsparken – an outdoor museum in the biggest quarries during the Viking Age and Middle Ages in Scandinavia.
Spectacular Lihesten is a famous landmark on the coast and may well be one of the most photographed mountains in the region. There are lots of paths on the mountain, and you can spend days exploring them.
Fishing and boating
If you enjoy fishing, you’ve definitely come to the right place. You can fish in typical coastal areas to more sheltered valleys and heathland locations and experience the diversity of geology and ground cover. Hyllestad is a paradise for fishing enthusiasts from around the world. You can decide whether you would like to go on a guided fishing trip or hire a boat and set off on your own.
