Wonderful, enjoyable and informative. Go dressed for all weathers, we had snow, sleet, rain, mist, and sunshine the day we went. Scenery is great, and despite that the mist came down over the fjord quite quickly, we managed to see a bit if Pulpit Rock.

one of the most famous Norway's fjord, very easy to access from Stavanger port with many departure options and suitable for family, large groups or couples. Is definitely a must do!

During the tris You can enjoy lots of waterfalls and amazing landscape of the fjord. Keep in mind that outside the ferry it... More

A trip to the Lysefjorden is a must, if you can go by a private boat it is a magical journey :) First you will see the Preikestol which most of the tourists come to see, then you go past this and it all becomes so quiet and magic. Most of the times we have been there, we have been... More

Looking UP to the famous Pulpit Rock is amazing. Also observing the people on the plateau looking down on the boat 600 m below them... Given the weather conditions the boat approach the mountain side... More

The scenery is quite amazing. We drove across taking the ferry and the hiked up to Pulpit. The hike was great but the the view at the top was the show stopper!
