From Stavanger: Pulpit Rock and Lysefjord Scenic Cruise

1. From Stavanger: Pulpit Rock and Lysefjord Scenic Cruise

Imposing Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) is tremendously popular. Exhilarating Lysefjord ranks among the world’s most beautiful fjords. A great adventure – all year! Feast your eyes on majestic Pulpit Rock seeming to reach into the sky above incredible Lysefjord. This exciting Lysefjord cruise creates memories for life. We also take you to Vagabond’s Cave and tell you the legend of this mysterious opening in the mountain. We carefully nudge the boat’s bow up the Hengjane Falls where you can feel the spray of mountain water. Enjoy the striking scenery from the comfort of our boat’s sheltered cabin, with panoramic windows all around, or venture out on the spacious sundeck. The kiosk onboard offers a variety of refreshments, including beer and wine.

What people are saying about Rogaland

It was simply an excellent kayak trip on the Lysefjord with Nordic Paddling. They were extremely competent and nothing was missing. We had a fantastic guide in Sebastian, who was always good for stories about the area and good advice on the water. We felt in the best hands while we were on the fjord, so we could just enjoy the fantastic nature. Many recommendations from here.

We had a brilliant 3 hour kayak trip with our guide Dan. The booking was easy and the information sent very comprehensive. Equipment was good and the scenery stunning. I would highly recommend Nordic Paddling

Great trip. Good guidance and you can master the kayaking itself in no time. Beautiful views and steep cliffs. Highly recommended
