Full description
After getting picked up from your hotel in Stavanger, enjoy a scenic 1-hour journey to the fjord during which you can catch glimpses of Norway’s stunning landscapes. Upon arrival at the shore of the Høgsfjord, board a passenger ferry and cruise into the Lysefjord, where steep mountain walls towering above the fjord emerge. Pass under an imposing suspension bridge as you journey further into the Lysefjord and admire waterfalls, abandoned farms, and the famous Preikestolen cliff, which towers 604 meters above sea-level, before arriving at Flørli. Once at Flørli, your guide will lead you up the 4,444 wooden steps that border old water pipes which seem to be precariously clinging to the mountainside. On the way up, enjoy jaw-dropping views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains. Once you’ve reached the mountaintop, follow a trail through the forest and on to the remains of the Flørli village. This is a demanding 4-hour, ~6 km (round-trip) hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.  Following the hike back down to sea-level, visit the Flørli 4,444 Power Café, which is located inside the historic hydro-power hall built in 1916. If time allows,  visit the exhibition in the control room and learn more about Flørli’s unique history. At the end of the tour, get dropped off back at your hotel in Stavanger.
