Norway 5: Lysefjord
After an unplanned break due to spring fatigue, here are some pictures from my recent boat trip to the fjords. I joined approximately thirty other tourists on a three-hour trip to Lysefjorden, near Stavanger, with most famous sights:
Tingholmen island, where king Olav Tryggvason held national assembly in 998.
Høgsfjorden, with lovely weekend houses.
Hengjane waterfalls, with crystal-clear water, potable.
Fantahala – vagabond’s cave.
And, of course, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) – a massive cliff 600 m above the fjord, with the top of approximately 25 x 25 m. It offers a magnificent view of the fjord, but we will get to that later.
And here is the promised photo gallery:
