Lysefjord, Stavanger

4.8
#2 of 10 in Parks in Stavanger
Valley Nature / Park
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.

  • A must-have to take a ride up on the Lysefjord if you still are in Stavanger. It was a lovely boat trip of approximately 3 hrs. It's a fabulous nature Norway has to offer. High mountains and deep fjords. We saw and went under the Pulpit Rock. Not as awesome as to stand up there but more conveniently. It rained the entire tour behind us not worth mentioning. 3 hrs. went fast and well worth the money.

  • We chose to do this trip on what we thought was going to be a sunny afternoon. Half an hour into the trip it started raining and then rained on and off for the next 2 hours. Even in summer take a wind...  more »
  • This is a must see in a RIB boat where you can get up close to the waterfalls and hear the roar of water. The views are spectacular and breathtaking!!  more »

Where to stay in Stavanger

As with any Norwegian city, the high price of accommodations in Stavanger might be a bit of a shock. Luckily, the Norwegians have such a fondness for outdoor activities that most tourist destinations seem to be well served by several campsites in nearby areas. Rent a tent or a rustic cabin to appreciate Norway’s nature and cut costs. Alternatively, look for hotels in the city center around the Storhaug borough. Slightly outside of Stavanger lies the popular Sola Beach, where high-end hotels put you just steps from the sand.
