The famous Pulpit Rock and the sights of Stavanger are yours for the taking on this great tour. Your boat tour begins in the direction of Lysefjord, which has carved a path into the country almost 50 kilometres deep. The scenery that surrounds it is spectacular – all steep mountainsides and gushing waterfalls. On the southern side of the fjord, look out for Helleren. It’s an overhanging cliff that once provided shelter for the people that fished and hunted here. These days it’s a picnic site with enough seats for around 180 people. This is the spot where you’ll stop for a break, tucking into freshly-made waffles, washed down with a cup of tea or coffee. Moving on, the northern side of the fjord is where you’ll find the famous rock formation known as Pulpit Rock. On the top, it’s completely flat and its height above sea level is over 1800 feet. You’ll cruise by at close range – very slowly – so you can admire this fine example of Mother Nature’s handiwork. After that, it’s time to head back to the quayside of where thieves hid their stolen goods in former days! The return goes via the same route back to the port of Stavanger.
