Lysefjord by boat or car ferry

Lysefjord is one of the pearls of Fjord Norway - and the most southerly "big fjord" in Norway, making it accessible to more people. You can take a sightseeing boat from the main harbour in Stavanger.
You can hike above it - to Pulpit Rock, and Kjerag for example, or drive beside part of it, but to really experience it you should take a boat along the fjord.
