Our goal is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to experience the stunning Norwegian nature, and our cultural heritage that surrounds us.
We go to great lengths to make our guests feel welcome and to make the most out of your visit in our beautiful region.
Explore Lysefjorden saw first light in 2017 as a activity provider, with a goal to gather all activities and adventures in the region in one place. These web pages was also launched the same year with several partnerships to provide visitors with a variety of activities.
During the first couple of years, it was obvious that our services was appreciated in the marked, and that visitors to the region found it helpful to find the most popular activities gathered in one place.
Good feedback and dialogue with our customers revealed that many visitors headed back to Stavanger after their hike or visit to Lysefjorden. This was often because of lack of places to stay for the night, or even for weeks while exploring the region.
This was why we got together in 2019 and agreed to buy the beautiful small farm Gøysa Gard. As locals, with good knowledge of the area and this farm, we all knew that this would be a great opportunity for us to create new exciting adventures, and a place for visitors to come and enjoy their hollidays.
Our plans for Explore Lysefjorden and Gøysa Gard, is to make sure that you will find comfortable and authentic accommodations where you can stay for shorter or longer periods while exploring everything this region has to offer. We will also welcome other groups for courses, events, and other gatherings.
Gøysa Gard is an Eco-Lighthouse (Miljøfyrtårn) certified business, which means that we focus on sustainable tourism and to leave as little an environmental footprint in our nature as possible. We also hope that our guests feel the same way, and help us to do our part.
We’re all glad to meet new people and to get to know our guests. If you are staying at Gøysa Gard, you will probably see us out and about making sure everything is ok. Don’t hessitate to contact us is you have questions, or if you just want to sit down for a cup of coffee and some general information about the area and what to do.
