Ferry Service from Lysebotn to Preikestolen

by cheeleongs


I'll be flying to Norway in 2 weeks' time. I'm gonna hike to Kjerag and Preikestolen. I've already settled first part of my itinerary from Oslo to Kjerag. However, i am stuck in the second part of my itinerary.

I'm gonna hike to Kjerag first before setting off to the base of Prekeistolen. So my question here is, is there any ferry service from Lysebotn pier to Preikestolen pier? can u send me a link so that i can check out the price and time table.

Thanks in advance. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried
It is a national travelplanner. The original site is in Norwegian, but you can set it to English or German.

btw, how far it is from Sandnes Sentrum to Lauvvik pier? will it be expensive to rent a cab to there?

Sorry, I can't help you with this. I don't live in Norway, just knew about the site because I used it to find some ferries for my holidays in Norway. I've never been to the Sandnes area.

Forget about using a Taxi in Norway, unless you are an Arab Sheik ;)
I have used a Norwegian program to calculate the route:
The result is: 20,7 km/ 21 min.
It might be a good idea to rent a car, even if this is not so cheap.
You'll see some other interesting places (Månafossen-Moon's waterfall being one of them) and the total price will be smaller.

I understand you plan to travel from Sandnes to Lauvvik pier and then by ferry to Lysebotn pier.

Bus 47 runs from Sandnes bus station to Lauvvik pier. The trip takes around 42 minutes and is not very frequent. This is the time table for route 47: You can find find all the public bus and boat routes around Stavanger using this travel planner:

As for traveling from Lysebotn to Preikestolen. As far as I know there is no pier named Preikestolen pier. Bratteli pier is probably the closest to Preikestolen. You can reach this pier on a twice daily boat leaving from Lysebotn. Map of the route for this boat:

This is the timetable for this boat: Unfortunately it seems to be only available in Norwegian. This boat does not run on Saturdays and runs three times on Fridays. It will only go by Bratteli pier on request. Monday to Friday departure time from Lysebotn are 07:20 and 15:30. Fridays there is an additional departure at 17:45 and on Sundays there are departures at 15:30 and 17:45. Arrival in Bratteli around 30 minutes after departure Lysebotn.

Travel Tips for Stavanger

Take a trip to 'Kjerrag'...

by Brynjulv

Take a trip to 'Kjerrag' approx 2Hrs drive from Stavanger by car. However, there is a walk by foot of approx. 3 Hrs from the road. Kjerrag is a place were the 'base jumpers' jump from. Its 1000meter straight down into the fjord (lysefjorden). It is quite spectacular and a very good trip. By the way, - it's a resturant were y park you car ( good if you are thisty and hungru vhen you come back from 'kjerrag', Actually Stavanger is a small and tight town.What stavanger has got (conserning entertainment and resturants)it has in a narrow circle in the town centre. Quit good for socializing.

The beaches outside Stavanger

by Gard

If you come here during the summer and if it has been warm for a while, it will be worth going to the beach. It might sound strange but we do have very nices beaches here but the water can be pretty cold at times. Sola beach is the closest and the most crowded. But if you go further out (Hellestø, Vigdel & Bore) you will find beaches that are less crowded. My wife did find out that the water can be a bit cold as you can see from the picture.

In the centre of Stavanger

by Rusket

In fact this is a very beaten path, it is the sidewalk of the very busy Madlaveien, the main westbound road out from Stavanger. A lot of people use it daily, but fail to see it's beauty as they hurry along. It is particularly beautiful this time of the year with alle the flowers blooming. The path is not long, it starts at the underpass by the theater and leeds to the main entrance of the old hospital. But it is a serene oasis in the midst of the city. Enjoy!
