Your journey begins early-morning with a pick-up in Stavanger and drive to the Lysefjord, where you’ll board a speed-ferry.* Steep mountain walls towering hundreds of meters above the fjord will emerge. The cruise will transport you further 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 along the (one and only!) road from the village of Lysebotn up to the Sirdal mountains and then onward to the Kjerag trailhead. Before the crowds of tourists have begun to arrive, you’ll be well on your way up to the mountain. During the 2.5-hour hike to the boulder, you’ll encounter 3 periods of steep climbing interspersed with 2 shallow valleys. Once you reach the edge of the mountain’s plateau, while standing on a 1000-meter-high cliff, you will be rewarded with panoramic views. Cliff-side, you’ll have plenty of time to rest and enjoy your packed lunch. If you’re among the brave, you’ll have the opportunity to stand atop the Kjerag boulder. On the drive back to Stavanger (2 hours), you’ll pass through a barren, glacier-scoured landscape.
I'm the founder of local guiding company Outdoorlife Norway. I have a Masters degree in Nature-based Tourism (NMBU) and am a certified Arctic Nature Guide (UiT). Before leading guided hiking tours, I worked 5 seasons at Stavanger's Tourist Information Office. I have hiked Kjerag approximately 250 times (and counting). I am the guide who first came up with the idea of guiding small groups to Kjerag, while beating the crowd. Together with my friends and AirBnB nature guides Erlend, Hilde and Fabrizio, we form a team of 4 highly dedicated, educated and experienced local guides that would love to share our great nature with you!
