Lysefjord Norway

Its name translating to Light Fjord because it is surrounded by light colored granite rocks, this 42 km long beauty does draws you in. It is one of the most popular fjord trips in Norway because of its incredible ease of access from downtown Stavanger, where day cruises run, as well as including iconic landmarks such as the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) and Kjerag along its twist and bends.

The view from Pulpit Rock is a must see experience in itself.

Exploring the rest of Lysefjord on foot, boat, or car, is a real treat and well worth any amount of time you have to spend enjoying it.

The area has been filled in with silt and clay, leaving only the minor Broälven river in the middle of the former north part of the fjord.
