Enjoy a privately – guided Preikestolen Classic Hike and explore Lysefjorden on your own terms. Experience Norway’s pristine mountain air and some of the best viewpoints Fjord-Norway has to offer. Get the most out of your adventure – hike with a private guide.

On an annual basis, the iconic Preikestolen/Pulpit Rock welcomes more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Norway. In 2018, approximately 300,000 hikers made their way up to the imposing plateau. From atop the 604-meter-high cliff, the panoramic view of the Lysefjord is one of the most impressive Fjord-Norway has to offer.

Book this premium privately-guided hike to Preikestolen and enjoy an intimate, hassle-free visit to one of Norway’s most iconic natural landmarks.
Get an introduction to the region’s mountains, islands, and urban fjords from aboard coastal ferries and enjoy breathtaking views of Lysefjorden from atop Preikestolen. 

This tour is a great option for cruise ship passengers, looking for a private tour without having to worry about logistics or getting back to the cruise ship in time.

After being picked up at the time and location of your choosing (see ‘Duration and Pick-up Details’ tab, above), your adventure will begin by driving through the worlds longest underwater tunnel, Ryfast, which is connecting Stavanger with the Ryfylke region. 
After a short briefing at Preikestolen Mountain lodge (starting point), you’ll embark on your hike to Preikestolen/Pulpit Rock.

Your guide will lead you up through shifting terrain that, depending on the time of year, may be vibrantly green, shades of yellow, orange, and red, or covered in snow and ice. Each season is unique, and offers guests a different perspective of the Lysefjord. Along the way, while passing lakes, forests, and bogs, you’ll stop at numerous vantage points, which offer great views of the surrounding mountains. You’ll also be given ample opportunities to catch your breath and snap photos of the spectacular nature around you. As you leave the forests behind, your guide will lead you onward to the mountain’s plateau. After 2-3 hours of hiking, you’ll be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. From atop the 604-meter-high cliff, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Lysefjord and its surrounding mountains.

After a snack and warm beverage at the cliff’s edge, your guide will lead to back down to the trailhead, which will take about 2 hours. If conditions allow, your guide will navigate down a different trail. This alternative route, which is not found on any maps, avoids people hiking up the main trail to Preikestolen, and offers visitors a more secluded experience. 

After the well-deserved break back at Preikestolen Mountain lodge, you’ll begin your journey back to Stavanger. 

*The standard Itinerary may be altered/tailored, depending on guests´ time schedule and hiking abilities, ferry schedules, weather, and other factors.
