What people are saying about Stavanger
It was a great day full of impressions. Everything went great right from the start. The drive to Preikestolen was very entertaining. Our group was a nice mix of young and middle-aged people. We made ourselves known during the trip, so you knew a little bit more about the participants. The new underwater tunnel is impressive and our guide Fabrizio was very open, talkative and did a great job. We were exposed to all kinds of weather, such as sleet, snow, hail, wind. Unfortunately the visibility was poor, meaning the fjord had disappeared behind a gray fog wall. Nevertheless it was great fun and I can only recommend it to anyone interested in hiking.
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.
I enjoyed all the contents of the tour even though the weather was not great. It was cloudy all the way to the top of the cliff, but only in a moment the thick cloud had gone and we could look down on the fjord clearly from the edge. Although on our way back the weather was getting worse, we came back to the place we started before the worst and heaviest rain thanks to our guide.
Really informative, felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed the hike. The equipment we rented was all good too, they managed to equip us before the hike. They have all sizes so you don't need to worry if you don't have. Beautiful scenery, soup afterwards was tasty.
We thoroughly enjoyed our hike, the organisation was excellent and our guide 'Allen' was perfect. The hike was challenging and very exhilarating and Allen was extremely knowledgeable and caring ..Fantastic!
