Transatlantic — Stavanger; Touring Lysefjord


Lysefjord

Ursula had us booked on a boat tour departing Stavanger for the nearby Lysefjord. Lysefjord is a 26-mile/42-kilometer-long fjiord located about 16 miles/25 kilometers southeast of Stavanger.

But along the way to the entrance of Lysefiord, be prepared to snap some interesting islands and houses with boat barns:

Just shy of a kilometer into the mouth of Lysefjiord is a rather unique building that looks as if it’s sinking into the ground. This is the Lysefjiordsenteret, a restaurant with a private quay (wharf):

And just beyond that is the picturesque Lysefjiord Hyttegrend (campground):

About fifteen to twenty minutes beyond this point the terrain begins to change:

So start panning upward to enjoy the views:

    Typo at the end of the opening paragraph: “25 kilometers soiutheast of Stavanger.”

    • Roger, you are indeed a godsend. Thank you so much, amigo. It’s fixed!

      For some reason, I frequently fumble-finger the ‘I’ key whenever I type anything with an ‘ou’ in it, which is rather embarrassing for someone named Doug.
