Cruise on the Lysefjord

N 590.164', E 617.239'

Our rating: 7.60
Overall rating:
If you are visiting Stavanger in the summer season, then you can take a cruise on the Lysefjord, which is located nearby. You can book a trip here http://thefjords.no/. There are two types of ferries. The tourist one has higher prices, in August 2016 we paid about 110 euros for two people and a car in one direction. There is also an ordinary, passenger ferry, which is much cheaper, book here https://bestilling.kolumbus.no/. You can depart from Stavanger or from the villages of Lauvvik and Forsand.

Tourist ferry has free WiFi and a kiosk with food, passenger ferry is much faster.

Since the ferry is touristik and quite expensive, even in the high season there are not much people.

Within 10-15 minutes after the start of the trip the ferry passes one of the most famous places in Norway - Preikestolen.

From Flørli power station 4444 steps lead to a height of 800 meters (the longest wooden staircase in the world). Maybe it's easy for Norwegians, but we are not so crazy yet :)

The building, which you can see, is no longer used, power station is now moved into the mountain. Power stations on the fjord produce electricity for 100 thousand people. Water drops from a height of 600-900 meters.

Mount Kjerag is the highest on Lyseford (1084 meters). In good weather it is popular place for base jumpers (video). Unlike Troll Wall here this sport is still allowed, despite the numerous tragic accidents.

Big zoom can show the famous KjeragBolten stone, which we are going to visit next year.

Endpoint is Lysebotn village. If you are travelling without a car, no sense to stay here, unless you want to spend the night in a beautiful location. Usually tourists come here with a car and drive up to the plateau. The road with 27 turns takes you to an altitude of 1 kilometer to the restaurant and viewing platform Øygardsstølen (Eagle's Nest).
