Full description
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.

It was a great trip despite the cold and rainy weather. Super guide, very personable, you always felt safe with her, even in spite of the more difficult conditions (wet, slippery, chains, which otherwise serve as aids to ascent and descent on the rather steep, rocky path, were already dismantled since the end of the season) ! A certain basic level of sportiness and surefootedness is definitely required for this hike, but with these basic requirements it was simply a great experience :)

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!
