Start your day with a hike to Norway’s most famous rock formation!
Even when hiking in the day-time to Preikestolen, there are ways to hike in peace. Our guide can lead you on the path less hiked, so you can enjoy nature rather than crowds.
The day starts with being picked up by our guide from one of several designated locations in Stavanger. After a 40-minute drive, we arrive at the start of the trail (where restrooms are available). Here the guide will provide information about the trail, expected conditions, and useful tips for good hiking. When everyone is ready, the hike begins. If conditions allow it, the guide can take you to hidden spots along the way. The pace allows for time to adjust clothes and equipment, time to rest and enjoy snacks, and for taking pictures along the way.
After approximately 2.5 hours of hiking, we will arrive at Preikestolen, 604 meters right above the legendary Lysefjorden. The sheer cliff face overlooks the fjord, and the panoramic view before us makes for a fantastic reward after all the work it took to get there.
After we have enjoyed the scenery and relaxed for a while, we head back down. It normally takes about 2 hours to get back down to the parking area. Exhausted but satisfied, we get back in the car. As we get driven back to Stavanger, we process our experience of a day well spent.
