This place is like a dream! I strongly recommend hiking there and also a boat tour. If you go to hike, go with Outdoorlife Norway. Preikestolen with them was awesome!

Lysfjord is one of Norway's most famous fjords, an hours boat ride from Stavanger. The fjord is well-known by the huge "Preikestolen" cliff overlooking the fjord, which is a major tourist destination.

Go to the "Pulpit Rock" or "Kjerag"- be in shape and bring hiking shoes. Excellent hiking ! If not in shape - take the boat trip into the fjord ( from Stavanger centre ) - spectacular from sea level as well

This is the trip that culminates below Preikestolen, the 'pulpit rock'. There are a couple of main ferry companies leaving from the harbour. The Information Centre offers options. Feeding the goats, and the waterfall pauses en route are extra benefits. The ferry crew and visual...More

You don't walk the fjord, you sail through it on a boat! It makes no difference what hand you may use while sailing, as you will just be seated most of the time.
