Preikestolen cruise & hike

Want a total Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) experience? This is the tour for you. It combines a cruise through stunning Lysefjord with an exhilarating hike up the mountain. Our boat sails through unforgettable fjord landscapes of idyllic islands, rocky shores, steep mountains and powerful waterfalls. Underway, you’ll be offered a taste of clear mountain water from Hengjane Falls and see the Vagabond’s Cave of legend. Then we drop you off at the village of Forsand to take a bus to the Preikestolen trailhead for a hike to the famous plateau. After hiking back down, you take a bus to the town of Tau to catch the ferry back to Stavanger. Our modern, comfortable boats have sundecks, spacious cabins and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine.
