This was a wonderful cruise which takes you past the beautiful scenery of the area which includes waterfalls, Pulpit Rock and some adorable mountain goats which enjoy leftover waffles that are thrown their way. The waffles were a real treat. Loved the cruise but don't forget to wander the town itself and all the preserved wooden houses. Read Less

Once in a lifetime views. Definitely a strenuous experience for cruisers, especially when we're on a timetable. It was more of a march than a scenic hike. Please keep offering this, the time in port was too short for most independent tourguides to be able to say we'd be back in time for the boat. Read Less

This was a boat ride with lovely scenery, which culminated in seeing Pulpit Rock from the boat below. Enjoyable, but nothing special. Probably taking this same excursion any time but the middle of winter would have been more scenic, but for winter time, it was just fine.

A little research revealed that the Pulpit Rock cruise left from the same dock as the Sun berthed! So booking direct was a cost saving measure (as long as we arrived on time, which we did!) Lots of fellow Viking passengers had similar thoughts! We enjoyed the cruise and Grieg's music which wafted out at certain times! However, I must say I thought Pulpit Rock would be bigger!!!!

This was one of our favorite optional tours and we're so glad we booked with Viking. Those on our cruise who booked privately ended up canceling their tours because of an earlier departure time. The views were amazing - a must-see!

One of the most difficult but rewarding experiences! Such a beautiful hike and the views from the top are breath taking! Royal Caribbean wasn't exaggerating about it being a strenuous hike so if you're not prepared to hike up/down a mountain for 4+ hours I wouldn't suggest this. Hiking boots and poles were very helpful! Read Less
