The 42-kilometer Lysefjord is known for its vertical rock walls and Pulpit Rock, a natural rock formation rising more than 600 meters above the water.

The Lyseflord Cruise was a great way to see the surroundings of this industrial city. The boat was very comfortable with some seating on the second deck, which is outside. The first deck is inside but big windows to see the scenery. There was an ongoing narrative by the tour guide of the history of the area as well as Norway. They stopped at various spots to give you time to take pictures. The boat also stopped at a house/restaurant that set out a buffet of waffles, cream , jam, coffee and tea. It was a beautiful day so they had picnic tables outside. Their waffles are different as they are larger and thinner, closer to a crepe. It was a great stopping spot. Very nice and relaxing tour.

We booked a sightseeing cruise to along Lysefjord to Pulpit Rock with Norled on the day. The 10.30 sailing looked pretty busy so we waited for the 11.00 one which was much less crowded. The “sightseeing” was a bit difficult as the deeper into the fjord we got the worse the weather. As we neared Pulpit Rock as it was virtually obscured by cloud and rain but we did get to glimpse it and the rest of the cruise was very enjoyable. The boat gets right in close to some of the waterfalls - close enough to collect some water in a bucket and give to the passengers; and also stops to feed the lonely goat! We bought a family ticket for 1050 NOK which was the cheapest way of doing it even though there were only 3 of us (and our 19 year old daughter looks a lot younger!). Those passengers who did the Celebrity organised trip paid more than 3 times as much. Mind you - they did get waffles!! Read Less

Another independently booked excursion which was about half of the cost of the cruise line trip. This was a very enjoyable 3 hour trip to Lysfjord to see the Pulpit Rock and the magnificent waterfall nearby. There was a good commentary that pointed out the main items of interest and the stop at the waterfall where we were able to sample a taste of the pure water was one of the highlights. Read Less
