Prekestol — Norwegian for "Preacher's Pulpit" — is one of the area's biggest draws. The 600-meter climb may seem daunting, but it's actually quite approachable: The trails are well-marked, and the views on the way up slowly unveil the varied topography of the fjord below. By the time you reach the top, you might never want to leave.
The two-hour fjord safari takes you on a fascinating journey around Lysefjord, giving you an up-close-and-personal look at the incredibly varied landscape, including fantastic cliff formations. The tour takes about two hours and is conducted from fast, open RIBS boats.
