Not the biggest, but still one of the nicest fjords in this country, definitely worth a visit if you are in Stavanger.

Could do this over and over. Enchanting trips through the fjords. Clean sparkling beauty. A feeling of ancient history. Glimpses inot a wild past. Love just about everything in Norway and this boat trip sort of sums it up.

We chose to see this fjord by boat and would highly recommend the experience. The small settlements and “cottages” that dot the hillsides are most attractive. Pulpit rock soaring above is one of those sights that no picture can do justice to. The same can...More

We hiked Pulpit Rock in the morning, and wanted to see it from the Fjord in the afternoon. At the end of September, we found a "tourist" cruise, which was relatively short and rather expensive. We also found a "commuter" ferry, which made stops, had...More

We booked a boat trip down the fjord. It was beautiful. The scenery just built and built in both beauty and height. The fjord seemed determined to impress with its natural features and certainly succeeded. The "wild" mountain goats provided a laugh when they tried...More

We booked the “pulpit rock cruise” through our cruise line. The pick up point was literally at the end of our ship so it was easy to access the tour boat. The boat was mostly fully enclosed with open decks above for viewing and picture...More
