A once in a life time experience. Worth trying. Good weather is a bonus, but not necessarily a must.

Pulpit rock and the smugglers cove are a little underwhelming from in the fjord. Think twice before booking a boat trip for this as you are left feeling "is that it". I'm sure the view is worth it from on top but from below if...More

Lysefjord is very beautiful. We had about a 3 hour boat excursion from Stavanger which took us past amazing scenery, including the base of Pulpit Rock or Preikestolen. Many beautiful waterfalls, picturesque villages and cottages. We stopped and had some traditional Norwegian waffles with sour...More

This is a great and wonderful hike and you wouldn't wanna miss this. However, crowds can make the experience a little less marvelous than it should be. So skip all normal morning activities and make sure to start your hike from base camp no later...More

Perfectly organized tours. The hike is not so hard. It takes 4 hours: 2 hours going up, 1/2 hour enjoying the view and 1 1/2 hours coming down.

You won`t think there is a end for this fjord if you travel with a boat from one end to the other - it it soooo long! There is much to see along the sides, you can even jump off for a waffle at Helleren...More

Don't book in advance in case you get bad weather. It's a waste of time without the sun. Wait for a sunny day and go get your ticket. It's not cheap but worth every penny for the amazing views and waterfalls. A fantastic 3 hr...More

We booked this as a shore excursion on Royal Caribbean. This is a scenic boat ride from a very industrial city to beautiful mountains and inlets. Once you get to the fjords, it is so pretty. We had a warm and sunny day which provided...More

We did the sunrise hike twice to Preikestolen and the view over the Lysefjord is magical. It is something you have to do, at least once! We have written about it and also have a cool video - check it out at thewelltravelledman.com - Enjoy!!

Hi Can we take our 3 year old for the pulpit hike, on a pushchair? The pushchair is quite a sturdy one meant for purpose. Thanks?

Traveling via Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2 weeks. When in Stavanger, should we book an expensive ship guided tour to Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock or can I just walk off the ship and find a guide and book something at the port. ? We are in great shape and looking forward to walking and hiking. Thanks.
