Departure from: Stavanger & Sandnes
Duration: 7 hours
The roundtrip starts by couch in Stavanger, via Sandnes to Lauvvik where the tourist car ferry will cruise us along the amazing Lysefjord. A multilingual information system onboard guides you through all the attractions on the return cruise to Lysebotn.
In Lysefjorden you will find two of Norway’s most popular and famous natural tourist attractions; the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) and Kjerag. Thousands of tourists come to visit these two spectacular sights every year.
The dramatic rock plateau, Pulpit Rock stands 604 meters above the Lysefjord. Atop the cliff there is an almost flat top, approximately 25 by 25 metres, with a deep crack along the plateau. CNN Go and Lonely Planet announced The Pulpit Rock to one of the most spectacular viewpoints in 2011.
We will also see Flørli 4444, a former power station with pipelines and a 1470 meter long wooden stairway raising 740 meters from the sea level up the mountain. With 4444 wooden steps it is one of the world’s longest wooden staircase and has become a very popular tourist attraction. If you like you can take a stop for 1h 45min and explore the place while the ferry proceeds to Lysebotn and back.
Close to Lysebotn is the famous Kjerag, a 1100-metre tall mountain plateau. Basejumpers from all over the world come here to jump off the high cliffs that gives a 15 seconds of free falling. Another attraction is Kjeragbolten, a 5m3 big stone wedged between two rocks. Kjeragbolten is one of the most famous photo motives - and it's not without reason!
Lysefjorden has a rich wildlife and it's possible to see goats, seals and birds. While cruising along the fjord we will also encounter charming mountain farms, idyllic islands and waterfalls.
The cruise ends in Lauvvik where the bus returns to Sandnes and Stavanger.
