Full description
After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 30-minute transfer to the base of the hiking trail, including driving the world´s longest undersea road tunnel. After a short briefing, embark on your hike to Preikestolen. Enjoy the Autumn time of year with fewer visitors, stunning flame-colored foliage, and a splendid ambient light which seems to dance across the fjord’s mountainsides. Follow your guide up through the shifting terrain and onward to the mountain’s plateau. This late in the year, weather conditions are constantly changing. As needed, adjust the equipment you use (ice spikes, etc.) in accordance with the changing conditions. Along the way, there will be opportunities to catch your breath and snap photos of the spectacular views around you. After 2.5 hours of trekking, be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Norway has to offer. 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. Head up to an awe-inspiring viewpoint that overlooks both Preikestolen and the Lysefjord.  If conditions permit, follow an alternate route on the way back down to Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which will take about 2-2.5 hours. This modern yet cozy lodge is strongly recommended by the local supplier as a place to stay overnight before and/or after your hike. Here, enjoy freshly-baked bread and a well-deserved and delicious bowl of homemade soup between November 1st – December 15th. After lunch, and a few last breathes of crisp mountain air, you’ll return as a group to Stavanger.

Today we spent an extraordinary adventure in the Norwegian’s wild. Our guide Salvatore was incredibly nice and friendly. We immediately understood each other and he described to us the nature during the route. A good hot drink during the way and an excellent soup at the end of the tour completed the entire experience!! We have spent an amazing day hiking to the Preikestolen. Thank you guys Elena & Andrea
