The boats accelerate up to 35 knots and head towards the fjords. The feeling is abolutely amazing! Enjoy the wind in your hair while the boat is "flying" on the water. On your way to the fjords you will pass the city islands, fish farms and a lot of traditional cabins located down by the water. If you are lucky you will see some wildlife on your way! Look in the water for seals and porpoises and look to the sky for eagles! Once you arrive in Lysefjord there will be sevaral stops for you to capture with your camera or simply just take in the amazing scenery. The stops includes the Vagabond Cave, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and waterfalls! After about an hour the boat will turn around and head back to Stavanger.

Super fun on such a fast boat. Nice that our guide had fun doing tricks with the boat, making sharp turns on the water. Seen the Preikestolen, but actually it is not as impressive from the water as when you stand on top of it. Received warm suits before departure and (ski) goggles to prevent the rain from stinging your face sharply. We enjoyed it. I think we got value for our money, but everything here in Norway is quite expensive, including this trip.

Very well organized tour. They picked us up on time, and the guide made sure that everyone was safe on the trail by giving useful tips on how to use the chains etc. This is a very difficult hike, so it is highly recommended that you engage this company to guide you on the hike. Even the drive to the Kjerag trailhead is quite difficult, and they took care of this as well.

We really enjoyed it, especially the kids (11 and 9) thought it was great! Elias as a guide explained everything to us well and we felt safe

This trip was worth every penny. Well organised and a great afternoon. I would book with this company again.

Really amazing experience, invaluable to have a guide!!
