Idyllic stop with delightful cuisine

Culinary fjord adventure

Our boats depart from the Vågen harbor in downtown Stavanger for an unforgettable cruise though the unique fjord landscape of islands, rocky shores, steep mountainsides and powerful waterfalls.

Admire the majestic mountain plateau Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) towering over the waters of beautiful Lysefjord! You’ll also feel the spray of clear mountain water from the Hengjane waterfall, and see the Vagabond’s Cave of legend on a tour offering lifetime memories.

The Lysefjord-Helleren Restaurant is a unique experience in itself, nestled between the water’s edge and the sheer cliffs of the fjord. Its picturesque setting alone is worth the stop.

Norwegian waffles are, frankly, irresistible! A 30-minute ‘waffle stop’ at Lysefjord-Helleren could be the little extra touch that makes your guests’ cruise of Lysefjord even more memorable.

Or you can choose to turn this idyllic venue into your group’s private island for an afternoon or evening. We’d be happy to set up a special lunch or dinner program for your guests so they can sample the full cuisine of this much-loved restaurant, including its fabled seafood buffet or BBQ banquet, both featuring local foods.

The fjord restaurant is also a popular venue for anniversaries, weddings, team-building and any other event you want to make unforgettable.


“We were a business group of 22 and did a private Lysefjord-Helleren cruise package with Rødne. The experience was just incredible and enjoyed by all! The location of the restaurant was just incredible and the food delicious as well.” – ‘Tmstr’ on TripAdvisor.
