Despite the sideways rain and very low cloud the trip was very good, and would have been spectacular if we could see everything.

And easy hike for about 1,5 hours and beautiful view on top. Make sure to bring extra clothing if it's a hike out of season. And be careful on the top. Don't waste all your energy running to get there, you'll have to walk down...More

Lysefjord was beautiful, with lots of waterfalls, and stunning views of shear rock cliffs. I was surprised to see goats on a small patch of grass near the waters edge.

We visited this fjord on a boat whilst in port for the day on a cruise ship and it was great. Fabulous scenery....even saw some dolphins. And the view of the Pulpit Rock from below was very interesting. Would highly recommend cruising this fjord.

Unbelievable spot. The trekking til the top is wonderful. You have to use hands sometimes, but not so difficult.

I can’t really rate the nature with anything but 5 stars or even more. It’s just amazing! Lysefjord is just one of the many places that leaves you in awe of how beautiful it is! It is to be seen at least once in a...More

I was there in early June on cloud-filled days, so I`d expect it to be cloudy, rainy, and windy. I`d still recommend the boat cruise up the fjord as the boats are quite comfy. I was dressed for any weather and had a... More

We gone the ferry and really enjoyed it even though it was really heavy rain. Lots to see on the ferry and the tour guide was good.

According to the local newspaper (Stavanger Aftenblad), they have just upgraded the quay Refså kai. This was the original starting point to get to Preikestolen before the road was built up to Preikestolhytta.
