Fjord Cruise through Lysefjord
Come along on a scenic cruise of an authentic Norwegian fjord, to see and behold the one and only Pulpit Rock towering above the water. Anyone looking to experience the beauty of bona fide Scandinavian landscapes should not let this opportunity pass them by.
The best way of beholding the vastness of a fjord is by gliding through its waters. Departing from Stavanger, your vessel is a modern and comfortable catamaran boat, equipped with a spacious sun deck and refreshments in the cabin.
Your crew consists of expert tour guides, who will inform you of what you will see on your open water adventure. The venue of your journey is Lysefjord, an archetypal Norwegian fjord that also boasts of unique qualities.
The light granite rocks that line the sides of the fjord are what gave it its name, with Lysefjord translating to ‘light fjord’. It is lined with numerous misty waterfalls, including Hengjane Falls, which you will venture so close to that you might feel their mist on your face.
The fjord is also brimming with idyllic islands and varied wildlife - with a little bit of luck you might encounter the resident seals of the water or the acrobatic mountain goats of the hillsides.
As you near in towards the heart of the fjord, get ready to behold the Vagabond’s Cave - an ancient hiding place to a group of outlaws who sought shelter there a long time ago. As you pass by this enigmatic site, you will be greeted by the very highlight of the fjord, the steep and towering Pulpit Rock.
The cliff also known as Preikestolen is an ever popular venue for hikers, looking to see the scenery from above. On your cruise, however, you will get the pleasure of experiencing the allure of the rock from a whole different angle, as the near perfectly vertical drop of over 600 metres towers majestically over the skyline.
Your vessel will return you to the port at Stavanger at the end of the tour. It is available all year round, providing for different seasonal charms each time around. Don’t miss out on this perfect cruise. Check availability by choosing a date.

Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) is the most famous tourist attraction in Ryfylke. The cliff stands 604 meters above the picturesque Lysefjord. The plateau is about 25x25 meters and the surface is flat. The view from Preikestolen is well worth the two-hour hike up.
