 Lysefjord

Kjeragbolten is a boulder located on the mountain Kjerag. The rock itself is a glacial deposit wedged in the mountain´s crevasse. It is a popular tourist destination and is accessible without any climbing equipment. However, it is suspended above a 984 metre deep abyss. It is also a popular site for BASE jumping. The boulder is located just southwest of the village of Lysebotn, just south of the Lysefjorden.

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. As well as the extraordinary scenery of the fjord itself, two points along its length are popular side trips.
