Went there in the morning, starting hiking at 04:00. Great trail and the view was stunning. Clouded so not the best sunrise but the lightning were magic. Arrival at 05:15 on the spot so it was very piecefull, no other hikers.

In my opinion, the main reason to visit Lysefjord is to do the Pulpit Rock Hike. The rock itself looks entirely distant and unimpressive just from a boat in the fjord. You REALLY have to take the walk to the top. Fantastic walk, loads of...More

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....More

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...More

You don't walk the fjord, you sail through it on a boat! It makes no difference what hand you may use while sailing, as you will just be seated most of the time.

Preikestolen walk! Or a ferry ride (any of them that take you along through to Lysebotn and Stavanger. Lysefjord is one, if not the best fjords to visit on a boat. We went while it was raining and it was fantastic. Powerful... More
