Departing from Stavanger our Lysefjord cruise takes you on a trip on the fjord past waterfalls, lush landscapes, wildlife and, of course, to the world famous Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock).
From the comfort of our boat with panoramic windows and a sundeck, you can admire the great fjord attractions along Norway’s southernmost fjord.
Step out on the open deck and get a better view of the mysterious Fantahålå (Vagabond’s Cave) and get up close to the Hengjane Falls.
One of the most popular attractions along the fjord is Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock). From the fjord you get a unique view of the towering rock formation carved out by glaciers over 10,000 years ago.
The cruise lasts around 2,5 hours - making it easy to combine this tour with other adventures.
Enjoy the striking scenery of the fjord that end to end measures 42 km (26mi). The steep rocky walls along its sides are made of lightly colored granite, and gives the fjord its name, as ‘lys’ means light.
Rest your eyes from looking at the stunning attractions, and keep an eye out for sea eagles, peregrine falcons, porpoises, seals and goats grazing on the steep mountain slopes.
Preikestolen from below
Towering an impressive 604 metres above the Lysefjord, this striking rock formation is found on the bucket list to people across the world. From sea level you get a unique perspective of the majestic Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) reaching for the sky above the incredible Lysefjord.
The catamaran will drive right up to Hengjane Falls. The waterfall springs out from the steep mountainside at a height of 400 metres (1300 ft). It's popular to taste the pure mountain water that's pouring down.
Vagabond’s Cave (Fantahålå)
This gorgeous cove with dramatic cliffs surrounded by an aqua-marine pool, apparently got its name from a group of vagabonds who for months sought shelter there trying to escape the local police.
