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!!

It's one of my favourite spots in the world. I loved hiking a few hours to get to the top of the cliff..Only downside:it's packed in high season

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.

If you arrive on a huge cruise boat then book a 2-3 hour cruise up this fiord on a local boat, and avoid the over priced offerings from your cruise company. The departure point is very accessible and the content of the short trip very...More

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

My point of departure and return for the round trip Lysefjord cruise was Stavanger, not Oanes. I travelled with ‘Rodne Fjord Cruise’ ( details on line ) You can phone them on 004751895270. Good luck!
