Aarhus was named the European capital of culture in 2017, and it is yours to explore in your own time for the morning, with plenty of cobbled streets and beautiful buildings to marvel at.

Stay at: Fjord Line Cruise

DAY 4 Stavanger
After breakfast on the ship, disembark to the city of Stavanger, which has been standing since the 12th Century. The day will start with a guided panoramic walk, before leaving the day free to explore. You may spend the day learning about its Viking history, or take one of the optional tours on offer, which we highly recommend. To get the best from the city and the fjords, you can take the 3 hour cruise down the Lysefjord, getting so close to the waterfalls you can feel the spray, with a chance to sight "The Pulpit". If the opportunity to climb the Pulpit is one you cannot miss, then take the other tour, which takes you on the cruise earlier in the day, but then carry on with a hike to the top of the ledge, with the majestic fjords opening up beneath you.

If you take the hiking tour you will not be able to attend the Stavanger tour in the morning.

Prebook your optionals
Only available when prebooked, ask your consultant about one of the following optionals on Day 4 to cruise Lyesefjord Fjord and to see or climb the famous Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock.

Option 1: Lysefjord Cruise: 3-hour cruise of the Lysefjord will take you right into the heart of the fjord, and so close to one of the waterfalls that you can feel the spray from it. You will also pass the famouse Pulpit rock towering above, before returning to Stavanger for the evening.

Option 2: Lysefjord Cruise and Preikestolen Climb: Leaving Stavanger after breakfast, cruise through the Lysejord, past beautiful waterfalls and stunning mountains. You will then take the climb up to the top of the Preikestolen, otherwise known as "The Pulpit". This climb takes around 4 hours (round trip), and does require suitable clothing for the hike.
