Many hiking routes
Lysefjorden Tourist Cabin is an outstanding springboard for the hike to Kjerag. In addition, the cabin is one of the highpoints of the Hiking Association’s route “Circuit of Lysefjord”. Preiksestolen (Pulpit Rock) hikers can take the tourist ferry to Lysebotn the same day, sleep at Lysefjorden Tourist Cabin, and then hike to Kjerag next day.

We serve homemade breakfast, lunch and dinner and are licensed for beer and wine. The café is open from 8am to 10pm.

Bus or car to Øvre Sirdal, further on the “Lysevegen” road to Lysebotn. Tourist ferry or express catamaran from Stavanger, Lauvvik or Forsand.
