Have you ever been on a sunrise hike?
Preikestolen is the perfect scene for a majestic morning high in the mountains. By joining our guided sunrise hike, you don’t have to worry about logistics or timing. We highly recommend this tour if you want to avoid the thousands of people that will be on the trail during the high-season days. Hike in the peace and quiet of dawn instead!

The adventure starts with being picked up very early in the morning 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, and the headlamps are on, the hike begins. The landscape is dark and quiet. If the moon is up, it casts a ghostly light over us. The towering trees in the forest make the imagination run wild, and the guide knows all sorts of spooky folklore for those who are interested! The pace allows for time to adjust clothes and equipment, time to rest and enjoy snacks.

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. If we are lucky, the sun will show itself as it climbs over the mountain ridges, and bathe us in warmth, and amazing light.

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 Basecamp. In the comfort of the mountain lodge, we will enjoy a simple, but fresh and tasty breakfast. Exhausted but satisfied, we get back in the car. As we get driven back to Stavanger, we process our experience of a morning well spent.
