Step on world famous mountain plateaus like Preikestolen and Kjerag, and then challenge yourself on the 4,444 steps of the wooden staircase of Flørli and other unsung attractions.
Lysefjord has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
The Stavanger trekking association has established eateries with focus on local food in Lysebotn and by The Pulpit Rock. You can taste the same passion for local ingredients at the café in Flørli and on board the ferry. There are several options for getting to the Lysefjord area and around.
The area has varied and cosy accommodation, from the prehistoric village of Landa Park via camping sites and cabins to the hydropower stations Flørli and Lysebotn. After all those wooden steps and other hiking experiences that you only find here, it’s good to be taken care of.
