is a fjord
located in the Ryfylke
area in southwestern Norway
. The 42-kilometre (26 mi) long fjord lies in Forsand
municipality in Rogaland
county, about 25 kilometres (16 mi) east of the city of Stavanger
. The name means light fjord
, and is said to be derived from the lightly coloured granite
rocks along its sides. It is particularly well-known by the huge Preikestolen
cliff overlooking the fjord, which is a major tourist destination for the region. The fairly isolated village of Lysebotn
lies at the eastern end of the fjord and the villages of Forsand
both lie at the western end of the fjord near the Lysefjord Bridge
, the only crossing of the fjord.
