We were on a cruise ship and decided to book this fjord cruise since one in our group could not do the hike up to pulpit rock. It was a very scenic cruise with the fjords and waterfalls. The day was overcast with sprinkles every now and then but did not take away from the beauty of the area. It was well worth the price and a lot cheaper than the cruise ship excursion.

Had a really nice time, weather was good. Only sprinkled rain a bit and we just went inside. Lots of great scenery and photo ops. Crew was real good to let us know when something good to see like seals or goats and really got in close on some of the formations. I would highly recommend this trip to view the beauty of this country!

During our visit to Stavanger, our tour with Rodne Fjord Cruises to Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock was certainly the highlight. We had arrived by cruise ship and although we had already been cruising through the fjords, this excursion with a smaller boat was absolutely worth it. First of all, the online booking process and check in on the ship was very easy (the boat departs right next to the cruise ship dock). When we left rainy Stavanger behind, the sun suddenly came out and were treated to most gorgeous fjord scenery - little villages, a seal, mountain goat, caves - that large cruise ships just cannot negotiate in this manner. Although the sky soon clouded over again, we could not get enough of the beautiful Norwegian countryside.
The cruise was completely booked up, but like other reviewers have noted, there is enough space to walk around and it never felt crowded. Restrooms were roomy and clean, and staff friendly. The tour lasts exactly 3 hours and cost 420NKr (about $70), but it is well worth the expense. Lysefjord is breathtaking!

Agree with the other positive reviews. We booked this online and just walked around the harbour from where our cruise ship was docked. As expected, the line to board was kind of chaotic but once on board it didn't disappoint. This cruise was completely booked but because you could move around it never felt crowded. Most everyone "claims" a seat on the top deck but we decided to set in the front row of the enclosed covered cabin and just get up and move all over the boat to take pictures and to just enjoy "the moment". Yes, it's pricey but EVERYTHING costs more in Norway!

We highley recommend this excursion.

We went on the boat trip despite bad weather, as we were leaving Norway and didn't have time to wait for the rain to stop. It would probably be a lot nicer with clear skies. Standing outside on the boat was impossible half the time due to the rain hitting your face like bullets, and the wind nearly blowing you away. The boat itself was very comfortable and I guess the sights would have been nice if the weather had been better, but if conditions are less than perfect, it's better to save your money (price is 420nok/pp).
