Experience the Norwegian fjords throughout a scenic sightseeing cruise from Stavanger. Enjoy nature in all its glory from the comfort of a boat, passing by stunning sights such as the Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen). Discover the mysterious Vagabond's Cave, a gorgeous cove where dramatic cliffs surround an aqua-marine pool. As legend has it, the cave was named after a group of vagabonds who hid in the shelter for months trying to escape police. Then, head to Pulpit Rock, a natural rock formation consisting of a steep cliff that rises 1,981 feet above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, with an almost flat top of approximately 80 meters across. Next, see the towering waterfalls, idyllic islands, and breathtaking scenery of the Lysefjord. Also, visit wild goats at a summer pasture, and taste clear mountain water from the Hengjane Falls.

What people are saying about Rogaland

I had a great time, the boat was a great size, not too big and crowded but big enough to have room to move around. The organisation was brilliant and everything went like clockwork and they gave out announcements of sights of interest.

From the water you feel insignificant between these rocks. Beautiful landscapes, beautiful rocks. The Preikestolen seen from the boat was a bit disappointing, was smaller than I expected.

This was so beautiful and worth the trek there! Definitely a moderate hike. Bring water and snacks, and expect crowds

Absolutely beautiful way to spend the morning! Crew was accommodating and views were magnificent! Highly recommend.

A wonderful cruise, the weather was perfect, the optimal length of the cruise
