The Lysefjord: agriculture, hydroelectric power and tourism
The Lysefjord is a unique and majestic fjord that stands out from other fjords due to its wild beauty. The fjord stretches 40 kilometers eastward between high and steep mountains, and the name Lyse likely comes from the light and sparkling qualities of the granite. The fjord has a long history of settlement, agriculture, fishing, power production, and tourism.
