Kjerag Summer Hike - Beat the Crowds

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect

    Your journey begins early-morning when your professional nature guide picks you up at Clarion Hotel Stavanger at 04:55am. While being transported to the edge of the fjord, you’ll be able to view some of Norway’s stunning landscapes before you board a speed-ferry.*

    The cruise will transport you into the Lysefjord where you will pass waterfalls, abandoned farms, and the famous Preikestolen cliff, which towers 604 meters above sea-level.

    Once ashore, you’ll be driven through 26 hairpin turns to the Eagle’s Nest trail-head, from where the hike starts. During the 2.5-hour hike to the boulder, you’ll encounter 3 periods of steep climbing interspersed with 2 shallow valleys. Reaching the edge of the mountain’s plateau, you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the Lysefjord.

    If you’re among the brave, you’ll have the opportunity to stand atop the Kjerag boulder. After a lunch break, your guide will lead you back down. On the drive back to Stavanger, the guide will navigate over a mountain pass.

    *On Saturdays, the speed ferry does not run and we will drive around the mountains. On Sundays, the trip’s itinerary is reversed - with afternoon cruise through the Lysefjord.

    My family and I did three hikes with Outdoorlife Norway - and each one was wonderful. The guides were such a help and made all the difference. On this Kjerag hike, Fabrizio took us not only to Kjerag, but also to another peak so we could see the fiord without the huge crowd.

    Jeff was our guide for the day. He and his bride to be, Carina, led our trip this day. The pickup was on time and in the correct location. Jeff was highly professional and made our day easier by choosing an easier path than the one that most people go up. Jeff kept the day
