Took a boat trip to see pulpit rock. Boat was warm and fast. Good commentary about area. Coffee and tea from a machine but still ok. Boat was not too busy so plenty of room to go either outside or sit next to a window. Well worth a visit if you have 2 hours to spare.

Vi took a boat from Stavanger, trip lasted 3 hours, went to see the pulpit rock from the Lysefjord. Nice boat, fabulous views of the fjord and the Mountains. Extra bonus, the "hanging falls", very Nice indeed.

You have to walk a good distance up hill and need good flat shoes. When You reach the Pulpit, the sight is amacing. Take care of children, it can be dangerous if they are running around. The trip takes time of about 2-3 hours. The weather must be bright and clear.

We took a boat tour around the Lysefjord, booked through our fredolsen cruise of Norway aboard the Braemar. It was a nice enough afternoon but a little boring. We stayed down in the fjords and occasionally stopped for pictures but it's all pretty similar after a while. If we had realised we would have booked onto a tour that allowed... More

I visited this Fjord with a Fjord Cruise boat company in Stavanger alongside 37 members of our brass band . We found the city in itself very expensive by British standards and a few of us quibbled at the £40BP cost but Wow we all agreed we would have paid double . Murky early morning weather receded to provide beautiful... More

We visited Lysefjord on a 3-hour boat trip. Nice way to have a glympse of the fjord, experienced captain allows some nice close-up views. Worthy of its price (around 500 NOK).

Rugged snow-covered mountains rise above a cold lake, stretching far. Distant mist just adds to the feeling that you are in a J.R.R.Tolkien fantasy: 'There be Trolls beyond...' Amazing.

Wonderful, enjoyable and informative. Go dressed for all weathers, we had snow, sleet, rain, mist, and sunshine the day we went. Scenery is great, and despite that the mist came down over the fjord quite quickly, we managed to see a bit if Pulpit Rock.
