Cruise through the Lysefjord and view Preikestolen. Hike the world’s longest wooden staircase to the top of the mountainside, enjoy the fjord views and visit the former power plant village of Flørli.
This is a private tour only. That means if you book this tour, nobody else can join. The experience is for you and you alone. Your journey to Flørli begins when your guide picks you up at a location of your choosing. While being transported to the fjord, which takes about 1 hour.
Upon arrival at the shore of the Høgsfjord, you’ll board a passenger ferry, which will cruise into the Lysefjord. During the 1 hour, 45 min. fjord crossing to Flørli, the ferry will start-off by navigating under a suspension bridge that spans the mouth of the Lysefjord. The cruise will transport you further into the Lysefjord and where you will pass waterfalls, abandoned farms, and the famous Preikestolen cliff.
The village is beautifully located amidst 1000-meter-high mountains along the southern shore of the Lysefjord. In 1916, construction began on a hydro-electric power plant, which, from 1918 until 1950, supplied electricity to the city of Stavanger. At its peak of activity (1917), 142 people were employed at the plant; quite an impressive number considering that only 13 permanent residences were ever built near the site.
Once at Flørli, your guide will lead you up the 4,444 wooden steps that parallel old water pipes. Flørli has the longest wooden staircase in the world, reaching an elevation of 750 meters above sea-level. On the way up, you’ll enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains.
Once you’ve reached the mountaintop, your guide will lead you along a trail through the forest and on to the remains of the Flørli village. This is a demanding 4-hour, ~6 km (round-trip) hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.
If time allows, you will have the opportunity to visit the exhibition in the control room, and learn more about Flørli’s unique history. You will then be transported back to Stavanger on a high-speed ferry, which takes about an hour.
If you would like to add additional experiences to the hike (e.g. yoga, RIB safari, beer-tasting etc.), or to customise the tour even more, check out our Tailored Private Experience!
