Full description
Hike one of Norway’s most spectacular walking trails just a few hours from Stavanger, and get stunning views from the top of Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) above the Lysefjorden fjord. Reach the edge of the near-vertical cliff and test your nerves of steel as you stand or sit close to the edge above crystal-clear waters. Enjoy a light snack as you take in the unobstructed views over a fjord formed by glaciers during the last Ice Age. Reconnect with the wilderness on the 4 to 6-hour trek using well marked and easy to follow paths. Face the challenge of rocks that may become slippery in more demanding areas before you reach the unparalleled views.

What could I say!? The tour was extremely perfect, everything was good organized and everything went good, the weather was great and the views and places were simply astonishing, I enjoyed every single moment of the tour with Lysefjorden Adventure company and that made me take another tour with them to Kjerag the next day and guess what! it was also perfect as the other one, anyhow the tours with Lysefjorden Adventure are a must do when you visit Stavanger and I will always recommend that to the people who are planning to visit there. I also want to take the chance to thank my tour guide Hege of both tours, this woman is extremely amazing and professional, she planned everything perfectly and made everything easy to us, she even took us to amazing secret places only locals know about, she explained everything about the places and history of it, one of the best tour guides I have ever met in my life and if you are reading this Hege I would want to tell you I can’t thank you enough!

The hike was absolutely amazing and the view was spectacular. Our guide (Michael) was knowledgeable, friendly and a very experienced mountaineer; making an already wonderful hike even more fantastic. I would recommend that people consider the hike at least moderate as you do have to go up several steep inclines for extensive periods. Additionally, if you’re doing the hike in the winter please make sure you are prepared with warm clothes (several layers), actual hiking boots, a rain jacket, day pack and spikes. The weather changes quickly and hikers should be ready for varying climates.
