Beautiful Fjord

I took a boat trip down Lysefjord and was able to admire Pulpit Rock from below - only to hike it later on - Norway's fjords are simply spectacular.

Did the fjord boat tour from near the cruise ship. Very new clean and covered boat but with accessible too for looking. Audio announcements were well done. The boat is quite maneuverable for its size and there are several planned stops that the crew could do like feeding a goat, and catching fresh mountain water from a waterfall. Scenery is... More

I have made this trip several times, and it never gets old. Weather permitting, both the fjord cruise and hike are very memorable. Be aware that the pulpit rock hike has become VERY popular so choose your timing carefully.

We took a trip sling this fjord on arrival in Norwegian waters and we're delighted by its tall cliffs and deep waters. Many waterfalls, tall mountain cliffs, narrow channels, small villages and then the dramatic Pulpit rock and the boulder caught in crack in the cliffs and a challenge to the brace hearted to stand upon it and defy the...

Lysefjord cruise is a must do to get a good view of the fjord. It lasts for about 2.5 hours and shows the salmon farms, exotic vacation homes, lush greenery of the fjord mountains, manfossen waterfalls and the famous pulpit rock too. We chose to be dropped at the pulpit rock hike base point. The hike is beautiful with many... More

Travelling by boat out from Stavanger into the Lysefjord is a wonderful experience, the scenery along the way is fantastic, with the lovely wooden houses painted in the Norwegian red colour, Finally arriving a Pulpit Rock is was awsome.
