This was an excellent trip - even better as it was a beautiful sunny day. Our trip was operated by Rodne Boats and left from Skagenkaien - the harbour water front. The trip lasts about 3 hours.

We spent 3 hours cruising the Lysefjord with Rodne Fjord, and this was an excellent choice. The narration was well done, the boat stopped to enable us to see interesting fjord geology and waterfalls up close, and one of the crew even stepped off the...More

I decided to take the hike to Preikestolen after two weeks walking in a National Park. I would recommend it to everybody who is able. The climb isn't difficult, is well marked, and should be climbed by almost everybody in 2 hours. If you're fitter...More

I booked on the cruise ship. It saves time in port to book ahead and you don't have to worry about getting back to the ship on time. It may cost a bit more(?) but the companies they hire are very good.

Hi Can we take our 3 year old for the pulpit hike, on a pushchair? The pushchair is quite a sturdy one meant for purpose. Thanks?
