Took the Lysefjord Sightseeing boat. It's over three hours but on a great vessal and with excellent comentry. Very enjoyable.

This is a must do trip if you are in Stavanger. The scenery is stunning, Pulpit Rock is supposed to be the highlight but I loved every minute of this cruise through the fjord.

Not much wildlife which was a bit disappointing, just a couple of goats and some sea birds.

The boat was comfortable, we sat outside even when it was going at some speed and a bit chilly but there's plenty of seating inside too. Our trip included a stop for waffles and coffee.

If we ever return to Stavanger I would try to get a trip further into the fjord, this one was certainly a high spot of our holiday and it's left me wanting to see more.

A great trip, with the tiny looking Pulpit Rock towering above where the boat turns to go back.

Don't miss this Rock, unlike the American lady on the trip who asked if we were at it yet about 10 minutes after we had passed it!

We had great weather when we visited Stavanger on our cruise ship. Thus, we had a beautiful day to cruise through the Stavanger Archipelago and into the Lysefjord. The main attraction is Pulpit Rock. However, don't neglect looking at the rest of the scenery.
Nor much wildlife; we saw lots of birds, some goats and a porpoise.
