Carved by glaciers in the ice age, Lysefjord is a popular destination in south-western Norway because of the extraordinary scenery. There are two popular point: The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), offering a view of the fjord from a 604 meters high plateau and the Kjerag mountain, a favorite between hikers.

The fjord is 42 kilometers (23 miles) long, with rocky walls, some even 1000 meters (3,000 feet) high. There are only two villages here, located at opposite ends. The hills are to steep for roads, so the only way to travel is by boat.
