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.

This, as many of the fjords I have seen, is simply breathtaking. The sheer beauty of the rock formations along the water’s edge coupled with the amazing colors of autumn will make this an experience that we won’t forget. We saw Lysefjord in the rain...More

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 cruised through Lysefjord on a Rodne ship that left from Stavanger. The fjord is beautiful, the scenery is breathtaking with the mountains and waterfalls. Definitely worth a visit.

The views are just stunning all the way through the fjord. The steep rock walls, waterfalls, and villages are unforgettable. The boat trip is a must do.
