If you travel to Norway, please don't miss to visit Stavanger. It has very interesting places to visit and plan your trip. Keep in mines, Lysefjord is one of the top 10 places to visit in Norway.

We booked at the Tourist Office, a five minute walk away from the launch, the day before our cruise. We chose the slightly cheaper, 2 1/2 cruise, at Nok 450 (rather than the 3 hour one, at Nok 475), which left the harbour at 12.30....More

The fjord was one of the most beautiful we saw in Norway, it looked amazing from pulpit rock and if it was nice weather the next day we definitely would've taken a boat ride!

Only saw the Lysefjords from above. Would recommend you to do a sunrise hike tour to Preikestolen. Weather is unpredictable so bring extra clothes.

Exhilarating Rigid Bottom Inflatable (RIB) boat tour is a great way to see this amazing fjord. Hi-speed boat is safe and sturdy. Excellent captain. Nice complement to hikes...see the rock faces from the water up!

When in Stavanger, this is a must do! The fjord is spectacular, the waterfalls are numerous, the landscapes beautiful. Depending on the boat, you will be able to get nearer to waterfalls.

I took the ferry on the lysefjord to get to kjerag and it was beautiful. It was my first experience on a fjord and it did not disappoint

We visited Stavanger especially for a hike to Preikestolen. Unfortunately it was raining all the way. The next day we were lucky, because the sun was shining and we booked for a cruise of 3 hours through Lysefjord. We were impressed by the rugged scenery...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.

Preikestolen walk! Or a ferry ride (any of them that take you along through to Lysebotn and Stavanger. Lysefjord is one, if not the best fjords to visit on a boat. We went while it was raining and it was fantastic. Powerful... More
