Gjesdal municipality is a mountain district, at the west coast of Norway, in the crossing between Jæren and Dalane, approximately 30 km southeast of Stavanger. The municipality border on several other municipalities, such as Forsand, Sandnes, Time, Bjerkreim and Sirdal.


Ålgård is the main village of Gjesdal. Other villages are Oltedal, Gilja and Dirdal. One of Rogaland’s main roads, E39, passes through Ålgård. E39 leads to Sandnes and Stavanger in the north direction and to Kristiansand in south, and the road are used by thousands of motorists and Lorries every day, as it is the main connection between the east coast and west coast of Norway.
