Breathtaking scenery, historic farms and exciting adventures await on this sightseeing tour by bus and boat to Lysebotn. The hairpin bends along the road in Ryfylke are an unforgettable experience!

You'll take a bus from Stavanger on a coastal ride through the Sirdal Valley. Here, you'll see the picturesque mountain region southwestern Norway is known for. There are year-round outdoor activities, including varied walking terrain.

There will be no doubt when you're on Lysevegen, a popular tourist road in Ryfylke. You'll begin by traveling through an 1,100 meter (3,608 foot) tunnel before approaching a series of 27 hairpin bends. 

In Lysebotn you'll board a boat for a cruise on the Lysefjord. Get your camera out as you pass by famous sites like Preikestolen, Fantahålå and Hengjanefossen.
