This is wow! If you are lucky and get nice weather, the view is just out of this world. There are some very nice waterfalls and you can see sealions, we saw :-)))

“Even the Waffles are great.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

The Norwegian fjords are beautiful, that being said, taking a small fast boat up to the narrower reaches is just that bit more special.From Stavanger which is a very attractive town in its own right, you are taken thru beautiful scenery to the base of the Pulpit Rock. This is one of the most photographed places in the world and is famous for its two thousand feet vertical drop. There are no barriers so those not prone to vertigo sit on the edge with their legs dangling. The locals say that they have no "Incidents" but there has been a few suicides.
On the way back your boat stops at one of the cafes where you are given waffles with jam and cream.This is mass catering, but done very well as the waffles are light and delicious.
All in all a great trip and one that I would highly recommend especially for those with vertigo and who do not want to attempt a two hour hike to the top of Pulpit Rock.

“A Long Lovely Fjord”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Make the effort to get on a ferry and cruise the fjord. So much of the water is almost a glacial blue, waterfalls are beautiful and the scenery is very peaceful. I would love to go back and perhaps even vacation for a week.

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

It is some year ago that I have been there, but I still remember the excitement and the cramps in my stomach when you approach the edges of the cliff.
Already the 2 hour track to the bolder is building up your expectation for the perfect adrenaline roller-coaster once you arrive.
Highly recommended if you are into nature, adventure and tracking.
