Stavanger Lysefjord Excursion Reviews

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.

Very steep gangplank on boat but I did make it! Stopped for coffee and waffle but I stayed on board. Did not want to chance very steep gangplank again and had to negotiate narrow pathway round to café. Been on this trip 2 years before and knew it was a lovely scenic trip. Enjoyed it again this year.

This is a beautiful trip down the fjord. The boat and the guide, however, leave much to be desired. What are you going to do?

Too many people in the boat.
Sail Date: July 2015
Too many people in the boat. By the time we boarded, all the seats near the window and the one next to it were occupied. Not a comfortable cruise.

Went on the 3 hour boat tour. Easy to do on your own and much cheaper than with the cruise line.

This is really an exciting trip! Once you leave Stavanger, the landscape is rather flat compared to what you will see - and the scenery keeps getting more spectacular with every moment you spend. They included a stop with Norwegian waffles and tea, coffee and sodas, which we really enjoyed. You will see Prekestolen, but from underneath. If you know what it looks like from above, you will be amazed! Read Less

Fabulous experience but expensive and poor value for money.
Sail Date: May 2015
Fabulous experience but expensive and poor value for money. Food at lunchtime was pretty bland and we were not offered any extra. Long day with various stops but a nice crowd so ok.

Purchased an excursion to Lysefjord in the harbor for half the cost of the same excursion available through Celebrity. The price was reasonable and the guided tour of Lysefjord was very good. We suggest you get off the boat as soon as possible, walk to the town side of the port, and book a cruise with the Rodne Fjord Cruise boat. They will give you an up close view of a classic Norwegian fjord. Stavanger is a nice town and entirely walkable. The cathedral, an interesting destination, is located near the port and next to the Tourist Information office. There is free internet at the town library, the McDonalds nearby and the Burger King in the port. Read Less
