Sea Eagles in Lysefjord!
Sea eagles are one of, if not, the most majestic wildlife we have in the Stavanger region. Yesterday we were lucky enough to see a young sea eagle close to Preikestolen.
The sight was amazing. The eagle was sitting in a tree on the steep mounatin, probably scouting for fish. It flew up in the air as we approached and stayed with us for a few minutes before it disappeared over the mountain tops.
Over the last decades the number of breeding sea eagles have increased in the west coast of Norway. We have seen more sea eagles in the fjords the last years than ever before.
Today there are 5 active nests in the Høgsfjord and Lysefjord area. The sea eagle is the fourth largest eagle in the world, with a wingspan of 2,5 meters.
Maybe you will meet some sea eagles in the beautiful fjords of Norway.

Even though it was raining this was a fantastic experience. All customers are given dry suits and goggles which keep you dry and warm, even when the boat gets into waterfall spray. Safety is very well handled, the skipper Arne/Arna? Is really helpful. I took...More
This is the second time I have been up Lysefjord and to see Pulpit Rock. The first was on the 2 1/2 hour boat tour which, in my opinion was a much more relaxing and enjoyable experience. The RIB was very bumpy which meant we...More

Very professional and priority on safety. That being said, it is exhilarating! The Fjords of Stavanger are amazing and the RIB offers and intimate way to experience them. Full body weather suits, goggles, and vests make poor weather a non-factor. In fact, you stop under...More
Firstly it is 100% an amazing place to see and an amazing way to see the area and scenery.... as long as you are prepared to be terrified. The driver was clearly a thrill seeker and kept ‘playing’ in the larger boats waves.. we were...More
