About Lysefjord, Stavanger
Situated close to Stavanger, Lysefjord is known for its mesmerizing mountain formations of Kjerag, lysefjord and Preikestolen or “The Pulpit Rock”. A southerly "big fjord" in Norway, it is famous as the pearl of Fjord Norway. The name Lysefjord itself indicates it to be a light fjord, and was carved out of glaciers in the ice age, later to be flooded by sea when the glaciers retreated.
It is a particularly popular tourist attraction for day trips, with tourists cruising the full distance of the fjord, and many taking a hiking trip to Kjerag Mountain, to view the magnificent drops.
- Best way to see Lysefjord is to take a cruise or sightseeing boat.
- During summers catch a bus from Stavanger to Lauvvik, and then a tourist ferry to Lysebotn for the fjord. Also you can take a ferry from Stavanger to Tau, anthen a bus to Preikestolen fjellste.
