Lysefjord, Stavanger

4.8
#1 of 13 in Parks in Stavanger
One of the region's most popular inlets, Lysefjord boasts imposing cliffs, forested slopes, and a host of rock formations. A boat tour gives a good look at the marine ecosystem that characterizes the area, and you may even get a glimpse of the old village of Florli. Traverse the rugged terrain up to the "pulpit rock"--a cliff over the sea that affords a clear view of the winding waterway. Hike your way up the nearby Kjerag Mountain for a sweeping view over the surrounding peaks and the fjord itself. Top off the journey to the mountain plateau by stepping on top of the Kjeragbolten, a boulder wedged within a crevasse suspended 984 m (3,228 ft) above the fjord.

  • amazing beautiful, great for walks and bikes, a must visit, defintiely do flørli on the way, and kjerag.  more »
  • Pulpit Rock is a spectacular place. It takes a good two hours to go the steep path up to the top, and then you have to go down again after... We didnt have that time or the right equipment for that...  more »
