Lysefjord is one of the most impressive views being 26 miles long with cliffs reaching almost 2000 feet along its length and its river depth ranging from 43 feet to 1,300 feet. Two primary villages set along the fjord Forsand, located near the only fjord crossing Lysefjord Bridge, and Lysebotn. In between these two villages are several small settlements that are only accessible via boat along the river front.
The two main tourist attractions include Preikestolen Cliff which reaches 1,982 feet and Kjerag mountain which reaches 3,640 feet. Because of its impressive straight down cliffs, Lysefjord offers a great place for base jumping for thrill seekers and is legal in the region.
