We took a 3 hour cruise to the Lysefjord from Stavanger. The scenery was spectacular and there are lots of islands, waterfalls and of course the Pulpit rock. Definitely recommended for an afternoon cruise.

The first port-of-call for the Serenade of the Seas was Stavanger on August 8, 2016. It is an industrial-looking city upon approach although spotlessly neat and tidy. Any thoughts that you're just stuck in an oil town is soon vanquished if you take the boat...More

This is an emazing trip to one of the most beautiful fjords in Norway. You will see the pulpit rock and some other atractions. But the trip is worth the boattrip itself, if the weather is good

I highly recommend taking a lysefjord tour, and bring your hiking boots. The boat will drop you off at the hiking path to preikestol (pulpit rock). Bring rain gear as well. Never know when you'll need it.😉

Not the most impressive fjord in Norway, but an easy day trip from Stavanger. The crew was great and really made the trip interesting. Very helpful that they deliver all of their narrative in several languages. Overall, it was a fun way to spend 3...More

We'd seen photos of fjords and thought we knew exactly what one would be like in reality. How wrong we were. No image can fully capture the magical quality of the 3 hour cruise to Lysefjord. The boat stops right underneath the stunning Pulpit Rock,...More

Hi Can we take our 3 year old for the pulpit hike, on a pushchair? The pushchair is quite a sturdy one meant for purpose. Thanks?

Traveling via Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2 weeks. When in Stavanger, should we book an expensive ship guided tour to Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock or can I just walk off the ship and find a guide and book something at the port. ? We are in great shape and looking forward to walking and hiking. Thanks.
