Cruising Norway

We were on a cruising holiday and visited the Lysefjord first. Our ship was small so could go up most fjords easily. The scenery was fantastic and worth the visit .

Taking a cruise ship sailing down this fjord is a wonderful experience. Calm, beautiful and some breathtaking scenery makes this a worthwhile visit. You need a pair of binoculars to see the pulpit rock and the Kjeragbolten.

If you ever come to visit Stavanger, it is worth the effort to visit Lysefjorden, and see the amazing Pulpit rock and Fantahålå. If you want to stand on the pulpit rock, it is possible to do so, but for that you need aprox 7-8 hours in total from the city senter. The walk to the top takes aprox 2... More

The beauty of this area is unmatched. The natural beauty, waterfalls, and wildlife were amazing. This is a place not to be missed on a trip to Norway!

Arrived on a large cruise ship and took a local boat for a more leisurely trip down the Fjords. Was very impressive with great scenery and the crew took some of the wonderfully clear water from the falls on board for everyone to try. Also saw the goats who come down the hillside to be fed.

Worth a trip up the fjord only takes 3 hours of your day and lovely scenery sit at the back of the boat if out side as the front is extremely windy once the boat gets moving.

There are two companies and we followed the recommendations from the tourist office, and I believe that is the best choice. Friendly and enthusiastic crew. A few fun surprises along the way. The Lysefjorden itself is spectacular, but also the trip to it is very nice. There is a simple kiosk with basic selection of food and snacks. So bring... More

Did the boat trip from Stavanger, 480 NOK so quite expensive. The boat is modern, waters are calm, the trip is three hours so quite long. You get information on the boat every 10/15 min on various sites you're passing. Wouldn't say I was particular struck by the landscape, perhaps it's because it's late April and it was a bit... More
