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.

Pulpit rock and the smugglers cove are a little underwhelming from in the fjord. Think twice before booking a boat trip for this as you are left feeling "is that it". I'm sure the view is worth it from on top but from below if...More

Lysefjord is very beautiful. We had about a 3 hour boat excursion from Stavanger which took us past amazing scenery, including the base of Pulpit Rock or Preikestolen. Many beautiful waterfalls, picturesque villages and cottages. We stopped and had some traditional Norwegian waffles with sour...More

This is a great and wonderful hike and you wouldn't wanna miss this. However, crowds can make the experience a little less marvelous than it should be. So skip all normal morning activities and make sure to start your hike from base camp no later...More

Perfectly organized tours. The hike is not so hard. It takes 4 hours: 2 hours going up, 1/2 hour enjoying the view and 1 1/2 hours coming down.

My point of departure and return for the round trip Lysefjord cruise was Stavanger, not Oanes. I travelled with ‘Rodne Fjord Cruise’ ( details on line ) You can phone them on 004751895270. Good luck!

You don't walk the fjord, you sail through it on a boat! It makes no difference what hand you may use while sailing, as you will just be seated most of the time.
