Lysefjord in Ryfylke is one of the most spectacular fjords in Norway. All Norwegian fjords are different in character, but with the surrounding mountains plunging straight into the fjord, the Lysefjord is a unique and breathtaking experience. Much of the 45 km long fjord passes between towering cliffs and mountains. The most famous of them is the Pulpit Rock, rising a sheer 600 metres from the fjord. A cruise or ferry ride into Lysefjorden brings you past both the impressive Pulpit Rock and the towering Kjerag mountain ridge.
