Please check your e-mail or phone on the day of the hike for messages from us. Sometimes the weather gets in the way of a safe hike, and we need to re-schedule or cancel it on short notice. In such a case, we will notify you via text (SMS) and e-mail to the number and address you have provided us upon booking. The weather forecast changes quickly, so there is no point in checking several weeks in advance. Let us worry about that!

Enjoy a privately guided hike to Preikestolen and explore Lysefjorden on your own terms. Experience Norway’s pristine mountain air and some of the best viewpoints, without worrying about any of the logistics involved. Whether you are a group of colleagues, friends or family members ready to relax, or if you’re alone and you prefer it that way, you can get the most out of your adventure by hiking with a private guide.
Unlike our regular tours, this is a private tour that nobody else can join. 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. Gain access to hidden routes and exclusive photo opportunities along the trail, and enjoy spectacular views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord.
The day starts with being picked up by our guide from your preferred location near/in Stavanger. After a roughly 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 adequate 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.
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!
