Lysefjord, Stavanger
(4.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
One of the region's most popular inlets, Lysefjord boasts imposing cliffs, forested slopes, and a host of rock formations. A boat tour gives a good look at the marine ecosystem that characterizes the area, and you may even get a glimpse of the old village of Florli. Traverse the rugged terrain up to the "pulpit rock"--a cliff over the sea that affords a clear view of the winding waterway. Hike your way up the nearby Kjerag Mountain for a sweeping view over the surrounding peaks and the fjord itself. Top off the journey to the mountain plateau by stepping on top of the Kjeragbolten, a boulder wedged within a crevasse suspended 984 m (3,228 ft) above the fjord. Make Lysefjord a centerpiece of your Stavanger vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Stavanger tourist route planner.

  • For an experience, this is something I would recommend all. At any time when there is good weather, because that then it's better to stand out on the deck and enjoy the scenery, the fjord and quiet.

  • Several years ago I went on a day cruise to the fjord on a cosy boat surrounded by Japanese and Americans from the cruise ship. Beautiful and especially to see the pulpit rock from below. The fjord is an experience and also know the history about the places around. Great fjord!

  • I took the ferry from Stavanger to Tau and then the bus up to start of Pulpit Rock. In peak season, it was packed with people (quite rude people to be honest) pushing their way to the front of the lin...  more »
