We visited the port of Stavanger from a cruise ship and elected to book the three hour Rodne boat trip instead of the ship's comparable excursion, for about a third of the cost. The catamaran boat was comfortable and clean with facilities to buy a coffee and light snacks. The informative commentary was delivered in three languages and we were... More

In the third week of August, we took the trip which lasted around 3 hours. The views were good and relaxing. However on the open deck of the cruise it was freezing that day and we had to go inside. Later it started raining. The price was too high for such a cruise; around 60 USD per person. I have... More

Unfortunately we took this boat tour early in August on a day full of cloud and rain. This impacted on the views (apparently the pulpit rock was somewhere above the cloud)! However, once the boat's technical glitches were resolved (we were delayed about 20-30 minutes) it was a relatively straightforward and well narrated tour lasting about 2 hours

You have to see the fjords when you come to Norway -the rock sides tower above you - waterfalls hurtle down to the river- there is a wonderful sense of ancient history and natural power. Take a river best cruise that will make sure you see all the best bits.

its kind of a big deal. i have seen it twice, the cliff is smaller then expected, but the strenuous walk up and then the 6000 m view down is breathtaking

Loved cruising up the fjord. Pulpit rock looks very small from the bottom but we could see arms and legs over the side..

Lysefjorden has a lot to offer, impressive landscapes and mountains. You can go there with ferry for sightseeing and you get to see Pulpitrock, if you go further in the fjord you can spot 4444 Flørli stairs and Kjerag bolten. Lots of great hikes in this area.

Me and my girlfriend stayed a night in Lyseboth at the very end of the fjord which we drove to by car. The morning after before we were going to Preikestolen (pulpit rock) we took this one hour ferry with our car through the fjord and the views are spectacular! Wouldn't miss it for the world!

Having climbed to pulpit rock the previous day it was very interesting to see it from below. Ferry/boat is very focused on the highlights of the fjord.

We visited Stavanger on a cruise. Once in port, we took a short walk to board a touring boat to cruise the Stavanger Archipelago. The highlight was to cruise Lysefjord to see the Pulpit Rock. This rock juts more than 1500 feet above the sea. The views, although it rained for half of our trip, were incredible. The rain brought... More
