Full description
To ensure that you beat the crowds, you’ll get an early start to the morning. After picking you up, your guide will transport your group to the base of the hiking trail, where you’ll receive a short briefing. You’ll then embark on your journey to Preikestolen. Your guide will lead you up the trail through shifting terrain, as you pass lakes, forests, and bogs. You’ll stop at numerous vantage points, all of which offer great views of the surrounding mountains. During the hike, you’ll be given ample opportunities to snap photos and catch your breath.

After 2-3 hours of hiking, you’ll be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. From atop the 604-meter-high cliff, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Lysefjord and its surrounding mountains. Your guide will serve you a warm drink and snack while allowing you time to enjoy a well-deserved break at the cliff’s edge.

Following the break, you’ll be lead up to an exclusive viewpoint that overlooks both Preikestolen and the Lysefjord. From there, the views of the Lysefjord and its surrounding mountains are nothing short of awe-inspiring. If conditions permit on the way back down the trail, your guide will follow an alternate route to the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which will take about 2-2.5 hours.

Because it’s not found on any maps, the alternative trail avoids the crowds that typically ascend the mountain during the early afternoon, and therefore offers guests a more secluded experience. Back at the trailhead/Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, you’ll enjoy freshly-baked bread as well as some well-deserved bowl of homemade soup before being transported back to Stavanger.
