Fjord Norway Rogaland Strand

Just 10 km from Jørpeland lies the village of Tau, just a short drive to Solbakk and the sub-sea tunnel to Stavanger. Scenic route Rv13 passes continues from Tau. The rapidly expanding village centre is just a short walk from the quay. Here you will find shops, cafés and restaurants, hotel, pub, gas station and guest harbour. Strandastøa beach lies just south of Tau.

Tau’s historical roots probably date at least back to Eirik Blood-axe; archaelological finds indicate that a king or chieftain once had a farmstead here. By the little waterfall near Krossvatnet lake is an old red mill. Tou Mill, built in 1855, marked the dawn of the industrial era for this region. Visitor’s to mill park near the old director’s mansion may note that the landscaping here is inspired by the English style. There is a popular café here, and on Sundays during the summer there are art exhibitions and a flea market.

You may also wish to explore the cultural trail, which takes you a couple of kilometres outside the village centre to the beautifully situatet old Strand church.

Just east of Tau lies Bjørheimsbygd which offers travellers additional facilities, including a summer hotel, cabins and holiday apartments, a café, a horse riding centre, and a gallery for handcrafted glass.
