Great way to see the Fjord. The ferry/cruise leaves at 9.30 so make sure your at the slipway by 9am. The crew will totally look after you, showing you all the sites.

We booked our boat trip in advance with Rodne through Norway in a Nutshell. Stunning scenery including Pulpit Rock. Boat trips normally 3 hours leaving twice a day. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

This is a thrilling speedboat adventure that departs from the tourist center area in Stavanger, Norway. Although not inexpensive at about $90 USD ($900 NOK), it is for the adventurous and daring who wish to see the beautiful Lysef Fjord, and the Preikstolen Cliff from...More

We bought the tickets just a few hours ahead from the tourist information center, but turned out that you can also buy it right before getting on the boat! It was in May though, and I am not sure about July, more people... More
