Absolutely worth it, almost mandatory to if you travel to this area to make a trip by boat along the lysefjord. From Stavanger there are several organized trips. The landscapes, views and emotions are incredible !!

We got on the Rodne cruise at Stravanger harbour on a bright sunny day. The Fjords and views are beautiful. The ship took us to the side of the Fjord to view an amazing waterfall (a clear day is best) to see to the top...More

We went at 10am and there was mist and rain. Couldn't see much and the view wasn't pretty at all. Even when it cleared slightly I didn't think it was as good as other Fjords like Geiranger and the ones near Alesund. Save your money...More

We visited the port of Stavanger from a cruise ship and elected to book the three hour Rodne boat trip instead of the ship's comparable excursion, for about a third of the cost. The catamaran boat was comfortable and clean with facilities to buy a...More

Unfortunately we took this boat tour early in August on a day full of cloud and rain. This impacted on the views (apparently the pulpit rock was somewhere above the cloud)! However, once the boat's technical glitches were resolved (we were delayed about 20-30 minutes)...More

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?

Traveling via Royal Caribbean cruise ship in 2 weeks. When in Stavanger, should we book an expensive ship guided tour to Lysefjord and Pulpit Rock or can I just walk off the ship and find a guide and book something at the port. ? We are in great shape and looking forward to walking and hiking. Thanks.
