We first drive for an hour to the boat terminal in Lauvvik, from where we take the tourist boat to Flørli. The boat trip is in itself a great 90 minute long experience that provides the opportunity to see Pulpit Rock from below, while cruising on the Lysefjord waters. The Flørli Hydroelectric Power Station is our starting point for the hike. At the top of the stairs we will allow ourselves time to enjoy the view, and will most likely take some pictures. Meanwhile, we can enjoy our packed lunch, beverages and some snacks. On our descent, we follow the 100 year old track that the “Rallar” used when they built the dam at Ternevatnet. Once back in Flørli, we plan to spend the time before the ferry’s arrival looking around the village, visiting the power station museum and possibly the cafe.
