Beautiful. Great for photos. Visited whilst on a P & O cruise last week. Unfortunately the weather did let us down as it was cold and cloudy. This is the fourth time we have visited and will not be the last. Must see site.

If you are going to Stavanger, this is a MUST for everyone. The Boattrip was amazing. We loved it from the beginning to the end and never ever seen such beauty in nature.

A beautiful insight into the herritage of Lysefjord. We got a boat with a tour guide and also got to sample some of the crystal clear pure water from the waterfall.

Incredible view of the fjord from the pulpit rock. A must do experience. Be careful if it's wet, and...go as early as possible, it gets crowded after 11am.

Many people visit Norway because of beautiful nature. That was also the reason I have done it. The main point of my visit to Stavanger was of course Lysefjord - the 42-kilometre long fjord about 25 kilometres east of the city of Stavanger. There are...More

Hi Can we take our 3 year old for the pulpit hike, on a pushchair? The pushchair is quite a sturdy one meant for purpose. Thanks?

Traveling via Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2 weeks. When in Stavanger, should we book an expensive ship guided tour to Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock or can I just walk off the ship and find a guide and book something at the port. ? We are in great shape and looking forward to walking and hiking. Thanks.
