 Preikestolen
 Kjeragbolten

The famous, 40 km long Lysefjord, surrounded by impressive mountains carved out during the Ice Age is the dominant feature. Ferries and sightseeing boats call on many of the exiting towns and villages along the fjord. Lysefjord is an extremely popular tourist attraction and day trip from nearby Stavanger, from where cruise ships travel the full distance of the fjord. The rock of Preikestolen, located above a vertical drop of 600 meters, can be seen from the fjord, but is more impressive from above.

At the end of the fjord lies the Kjerag mountain, a popular hiking destination with even more spectacular drops. On the east side of the fjord lies the town Lysebotn.

BASE Jumpers are legally allowed to jump here.
