Lysefjord is a 42km fjord in southwestern Norway. Formed by ice age glaciers, the huge mountains and rock formations tower over Lysefjord as high as 3000 ft above sea level. One of the most popular attractions along the fjord is Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, which you can see overlooking Lysefjord from the cruise.
Our Lysefjord cruise travels along the fjord, taking you past some of Norway’s greatest attractions. Admire the breathtaking Pulpit Rock from below and explore Fantahålå from the comfort of a modern and comfortable catamaran. As the wind blows through your hair, you will also have stunning views of small islands, waterfalls, traditional farms and local wildlife as you cruise along Lysefjord. The fjord is exceptionally straight and is lined with granite walls which you can appreciate from the deck or the large panoramic windows on board Go Fjords cruises. You don’t need to hike to the top of Pulpit Rock to enjoy its beauty, so sit back, relax and admire the view from the Lysefjord.
The Lysefjord roundtrip cruise departs daily from Stavanger and lasts around 2 hours and 30 minutes, so you have plenty of spare time to explore for the rest of the day.
Sights on the trip
Preikestolen from the fjord
Towering an impressive 604 metres (1981 ft) 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.
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. The cove is only accessible from the water, and the boat will get you close.
Local wildlife along the Lysefjord
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.
