Preikestolen, not far from Stavanger, is a peculiar rock formation that is formed like a huge pulpit. In 2011, it was listed as one of the world's most spectacular views and natural attractions by Lonely Planet and CNN GO travel magazine. Moreover, it is surprisingly accessible from Stavanger's city centre. No wonder it is one of the most visited attractions in Norway.
Viewed from a sightseeing boat along the stunning Lysefjord, you get an impressive view of the rock that looms 597 metres above sea level. The 42 kilometre long Lysefjord is a pearl in the Norwegian fjord landscape, which was formed during a series of ice ages. Mountains soar up to 1,000 metres above sea level on both sides of the fjord and in some places it ranges as deep in the fjord as it is high above sea level.
In addition to a rare view of a unique natural attraction, you will get a good idea of how locals live in the area – most likely, you will meet a number of Norwegians spending the day on their leisure boats.
The trip runs all year and is available in different formats – from a one hour and 45 minute tour. There is also combined boat and hiking tour that takes around eight hours (available in June, July and August). No matter which option you choose, you can be sure to create a memory for life - the perfect conclusion to your business event.
Price example (2014): NOK 450 per person for a three hour trip, NOK 750 for a combined cruise and hike
