The views are breathtaking with steep rock walls that are around 600m high. A boat trip around Lysefjorden won't soon be forgotten, but remember to bring an extra sweater if your going on a boat, the weather can be somewhat cold occasionally.

A trip on a boat up the fjord is a must. I went twice, once in good weather and once in bad. Both were excellent.

We took a group cruise up the fjord to eat lunch at a smalll town. The scenery was amazing, and despite the cold, rainy weather we found the trip enjoyable. I highly recommend visiting this fjord.

It's a beautiful fjord, peaceful, amazing views and well worth a trip. Stavanger is a very pretty Town and the beauty of this fjord is its crowning glory.

Third visit in 9 years. Best way to see this fjord is skip all the commercial activities and go hiking. Find a map put out by the Forsand Commune or the Trekking Association and go exploring.
