The best of both worlds
Combined fjord cruise and Helicopter tour
This highly recommended and unforgettable cruise tour will take you from Stavanger into the spectacular Lysefjord, passing the famous Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), and the waterfall Hengjarfossen, exploring the old power plant village of Flørli. When we dock at Flørli harbour you will have the opportunity to explore the beautiful surroundings and even walk up some of the 4444 steps of stairs if you like – if you dont have the helicopter tour included, then you get a 40 minute helicopter ride instead. But don´t worry, you can still do some exploring before and after the helicoppter tour. Flørli is famous for its 4444 steps right up the mountain – the longest wooden stairway in the world.
The helicopter will pick us up at Flørli for a 40 minute tour. From the air we will enjoy these magnificent views among others;
- Månefossen (one of Norways largest waterfalls)
- Kjerag / Kjeragbolten (a rock wedged solidly in a mountain crevice, 1100 meters above Lysefjord)
- Fløyrli (famous 4444 stairs from sea level)
- Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) (a massive cliff 604 metres above Lysefjorden
We will then continue to Kjerag, the Majesty of the Lysefjord. At 1084 metres, “Kjeragbolten”, a round rock wedged solidly in a mountain crevice, towers above the other peaks along the Lysefjord.
The VIP-yacht is adapted to cruise the most hidden waters, to see the most spectacular places and beautiful historic sites from the Viking éra en-route to the ice polished walls of Lysefjorden. The yacht is fast and comfortable and you can enjoy Champagne with your family or friends while taking photos or just enjoying the breathtaking scenery.
When we have viewed all the breathtaking places we’ll return to the yacht where we enjoy a fantastic seafood meal on our way back to Stavanger
Detailed Information Helicopter ride
The helicopter will pick us up in Lysefjord area. From the air we will enjoy some magnificent views. Månefossen (Pronounced Mo’ neh fo’ sen), or The Mån Falls, is the 9th largest waterfall in Norway (90m high), and the Largest in Rogaland Fylke (Province/County). The old farm at Mån behind-above the falls is 60-80 minutes hike in steep terrain from the parking lot, which we will also fly over. From this place we will continue across the mountain ridge towards Kjerag. Here you will see the geological formation shaped 11`500 years ago after the ice age. Kjerag or Kiragg is located in Lysefjorden, in Forsand municipality. Its highest point is 1110 m above sea level, but its northern drop to Lysefjorden attracts most visitors. The drop is 984 m (3,228 ft) and it is also the site of Kjeragbolten, a 5 m³ stone located between two rocks. Kjerag is a popular hiking destination. Some go there because Preikestolen has become too crowded, some to jump onto Kjeragbolten and some BASE jumpers from all over the world go there to dive off the high cliffs. Then we continue out the fjord towards Preikestolen passing Fløyrli with its famous 4444 stairs from sea level straight up. Continuing to Preikestolen, also known by the English translations of Preacher’s Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local name Hyvlatonnå (“the carpenter-plane’s blade”), is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet), almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway. When we have viewed these 3 breathtaking places we will be landing back at the yacht where we’ll eat some fantastic seafood on our way back to Stavanger.
Capacity for the helicopter is 5 persons, so if there are more people in the group we can do several trips.
With the Marquis yacht the perfect experience is with 1 – 7 guests. The maximum capacity is 9 guests.
With the Barolo III the capacity is 12 guests, with great space to move around and enjoy the views.
