Discover the lush natural beauty and marine life of Stavanger's archipelago during this scenic boat cruise to Lysefjord.

It's a brief walk along the pier to one of the sightseeing boats where upon embarkation you will take a guided boat trip in the Stavanger archipelago. Here, you will have an opportunity to experience the local way of life and see quite a few residents spending a summer day on board their pleasure boats. You will then cruise through an area dotted with numerous small, idyllic islands and view the homes along the coastline.

Next, you will cruise on to Lysefjord to view one of Norway's most spectacular wonders, the Pulpit Rock, which juts out over 1,500 feet above the sea. Cruising directly under it, you may be able to catch a glimpse of the sea lion colony that lives in the inner part of the fjord. You will then slow down near a steep hillside where goats usually come close to the boats and are given bread by curious visitors.

Before retuning to Stavanger, you will make a stop at Helleren Beach for coffee and waffles with sour cream. Sit back and relax on the return journey as you take in splendid views of the city en route to the pier.

Please note: This tour includes limited walking; however, guests must be able to negotiate the boat's gangway and there are some steps to negotiate at Helleren Beach. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Flat, comfortable walking shoes and a sweater or jacket are suggested.
