Stavanger: Guided Hike to Kjerag Kjeragbolten

1. Stavanger: Guided Hike to Kjerag Kjeragbolten

Your tour will begin as you are picked up at 7:15AM from the location chosen whilst booking. Note that your drop off location, upon return, will be the same as the pickup location. You will begin with a drive from Stavanger to Eagle’s Nest, which is the trailhead for this hike. The journey is close to 2.5 hours, and is certainly not without its charm. Once having arrived, the trail will take you through beautiful mountainous terrain with changing landscape and impressive views of the area. Having reached the Kjerag plateau after 2 to 3 hours, you will spend time enjoying the views of the nearby nature and will have plenty of time to take photos. Some may be courageous enough to climb onto the bolt, and if you are lucky, you may be able to observe BASE jumpers diving from cliffs and down to Lysefjorden. This is also the ideal location to enjoy lunch, for those who have brought their own packed food. Your day will later conclude with your expected arrival to Stavanger at around 6:00PM.

3. Stavanger: Lysefjord Kayaking Trip with Gear & Snacks

Explore the incredible fjord landscape in Lysefjordon on this guided kayaking tour. Learn the basics of kayaking, then embark on the water to see mountains, gorges, waterfalls, and wildlife. Take breaks to learn about the area and fully enjoy the scenery.  After meeting your guide, start with a short briefing about the trip, safety talk, and waivers. Gear up in the necessary paddling gear before walking (150 m) to the kayaks down by the fjord.  Adjust the seats and pedals of your kayak with the assistance of the guide, then set out on the water to learn the basic paddling techniques, including efficient forward paddling and how to steer the kayak. When you've got hold of the basics, follow your guide across the fjord where you'll be paddling closely along to the 300-400m tall mountains, exploring beautiful gorges and waterfalls, and hopefully meeting some of the curious seals of the fjord. Enjoy multiple short breaks on the water, where you can enjoy a chocolate snack and learn about local history, culture, and wild edibles in the fjord. Before turning around to head back home, paddle right below the Pulpit Rock.

This was one of the best hikes that I’ve ever tried. Stunning views and joyful workout. We completed the hike in less than 4 hours but it was too windy so we couldn’t stand on the Kjeragbolten but I took a nice risky picture setting on the rock and celebrating my achievement. Our tour guide Michael was very informative, knowledgeable, supportive and very easy going. Definitely, I recommend this hike trip for all the adrenaline junkies seeking strenuous activities. @only1khal at instagram.

We did both the Kjerag and Preikestolen hikes with Lysefjorden adventure company, and had Michael as our guide for both days. Michael was the best! He was very friendly, funny, knowledgeable and easy to be around. He was very accommodating to everyone in the group and went out of his way to make sure that everyone felt safe and confident during the hikes. Highly recommend this company, and definitely ask for Michael when you book with them!

We had a great experience with our guide Geir. We booked the tour at the last minute before tour started, but Geir confirmed us back a few minutes after we received the confirmation which was very professional. The tour is well organized.

The tour plan was excellent. The tour guide Hamil was very patient.

Excellent location and we were lucky to go there on a nice bright sunny day. The tour guide was patient and helped all members without making anyone feel like they had lower fitness than others. All in all this was a great experience.

Despite the rain, wind and cold conditions, we found the hike a challenging, very rewarding experience. Our guide Jakob was a legend and would recommend the hike to anyone looking for a bit of a challenge
