    Lysefjord or Lysefjorden is a fjord located in the Ryfylke area in southwestern Norway. The 42-kilometre (26 mi) long fjord lies in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) east of the city of Stavanger. The name means light fjord and is said to be derived from the lightly coloured granite rocks along its sides. It is particularly well known by the huge Preikestolen cliff overlooking the fjord, which is a major tourist destination for the region. The fairly isolated village of Lysebotn lies at the eastern end of the fjord and the villages of Forsand and Oanes both lie at the western end of the fjord near the Lysefjord Bridge, the only crossing of the fjord.

    Preikeford Camping, take the bus up to the car park for two 240 kronos round trip. Preparing well the weather can turn over. Solid footwear. Almost the whole way goes over rock stairs. Best early morning or noon. Otherwise a lot of operation. But it's really worth it.
