Flørli, which has been inhabited on and off since at least the seventeenth century, is beautifully located amidst 1000-meter-high mountains along the southern shore of the Lysefjord.  In 1916, construction began on a hydro-electric power plant, which, from 1918 until 1950, supplied electricity to the city of Stavanger. At its peak (1917), 142 people were employed at the plant; quite an impressive number considering that only 13 permanent residences were ever built near the site. This is a demanding 2.5-hour, ~3.2 km (round-trip) climb/hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.

During the cruise, you’ll pass waterfalls, abandoned farms, and the famous Preikestolen cliff before arriving at Flørli. Once at Flørli, your guide will lead you up the 4,444 wooden steps that parallel old water pipes which, at first glance, seem to be precariously clinging to the mountainside. This is a demanding 4-hour, ~6 km (round-trip) hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.

Kjerag Autumn Hike

Fjord cruise included!* Join Outdoorlife Norway on an autumn hike to Kjerag, and witness the magic of the season’s shifting colors and Norway’s crisp and cool mountain air. Hike on trails that have recently been upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas, who used local stones and made overcoming the final (and steepest) slope a little easier. Though the hike to Kjerag is filled with breath-taking views of the Lysefjord, the trip’s highlight for many is standing atop Kjerag’s famous boulder. Your journey begins when your professional guide picks you up in Stavanger city-center (see above for specific pick-up times and locations). While being transported to the hiking trail, which takes about 2.5 hours, you’ll pass through a variety of dramatic landscapes including mountains, fjords, and bright green valleys. The guide will navigate over a mountain pass through the municipality of Sirdal. You’ll pass through a barren, glacier scoured landscape that many experience as being moon-like. You’ll begin your hike at a trail-head that’s known as the Eagle’s Nest – which one can speculate got its name because it sits a lofty 640 meters above sea level. During Autumn, weather conditions can be unstable. As needed, the guide will adjust your equipment (ice spikes, etc.) to match the weather conditions. The hike to Kjerag is relatively demanding: you’ll trek 11 kilometers (round-trip) with an ascent of 800 meters in 5.5 kilometer. During the 2.5-hour hike to the boulder, you’ll encounter 3 periods of steep climbing interspersed with 2 shallow valleys. Along the way, you’ll enjoy views of the village of Lysebotn, which is situated at the head of the Lysefjord. The final 2 kilometers leading up to the Kjerag boulder are relatively flat and will allow you to focus more on Norway’s beautiful wilderness. Once you reach the edge of the mountain’s plateau, while standing on a 1000-meter-high cliff, you will be rewarded with panoramic views of the 42-kilometer-long Lysefjord. Cliff-side, you’ll have plenty of time to rest and enjoy your packed lunch. If you’re among the brave, you’ll have the opportunity to stand atop the Kjerag boulder. After the lunch break, your guide will lead you back down to the Eagle’s Nest, which takes about 2 hours. After the hike, you’ll be driven through 26 hairpin turns along the (one and only!) road to the village of Lysebotn at the head of the Lysefjord. Here, you’ll board a speed-ferry.* The ferry will set-off navigating under steep mountain walls towering hundreds of meters above the fjord. The cruise will transport you further out the Lysefjord where you will pass waterfalls, abandoned farms, and the famous Preikestolen cliff, which towers 604 meters above sea-level. *On Saturdays, and between Oct 15 – 19, the speed ferry does not run and we will drive around the mountains.

Kjerag Preseason Hike

About 10,000 years ago, the last ice age ended and massive glaciers scraped their way from the mountain tops down toward sea level. In the process, Norway’s rugged landscapes, most notably its fjords, were formed. At some point, the famous Kjerag boulder was wedged into a mountain crevasse where it has hung ever since. Join an early-morning preseason spring hike to the famous Kjerag boulder, and enjoy the spectacular Lysefjord before the beginning of the high season.  Witness Norway’s bright green -and sometimes snowy- wilderness as it awakens after the long, cold winter. Breathe in the crisp, cool mountain air and experience the silent serenity of hiking in near-solitude. If you dare (and conditions allow), stand atop the Kjerag boulder, which hangs a heart-stopping 984 meters above the fjord. Hike in small groups and enjoy the panoramic views of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. This time of the year, you should expect the possibility of snow conditions while hiking to Kjerag. As needed, your professional guide will provide you with hiking poles, spikes, and snowshoes.   This is a demanding 5.5-hour, 11 kilometer hike with a total ascent of 800 meters. Snow and ice may be present (hiking poles, spikes and snowshoes will be provided, if necessary).   MORE DIFFICULT – Suitable for adults (16 yrs.+) who are in very good condition, and have previous hiking experience.

Preikestolen Autumn Hike

On an annual basis, Preikestolen welcomes more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Norway. In 2016, approximately 285,000 hikers made their way up to the top of the imposing cliff that hangs 604 meters above the Lysefjord.   Join Outdoorlife Norway on an autumn hike to Preikestolen, and witness the magic of the season’s shifting colors and post-equinox daylight. Experience Norway’s crisp and cool mountain air while hiking on trails that were recently upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas, who ‘paved’ the way using local stones. Conclude your adventure with a visit to the ‘Swords in Rock’ viking monument.   By October, visitor numbers have become dramatically lower than they are during the summer.  The area’s flora and fauna prepare for the long, dark winter, and stillness has set in across Norway’s vast wilderness.

After being picked up at the time and location of your choosing (see ‘Duration and Pick-up Details’ tab, above), your adventure will begin with a 40-minute ferry ride across one of the area’s many urban fjords. From aboard the boat, in addition to viewing Stavanger’s city center from a different perspective, you’ll catch your first glimpses of the region’s spectacular nature.

Once back at the base of the trail, while enjoying beautiful views of Refsvatnet lake, you’ll relax while savoring a warm bowl of soup and freshly-baked bread at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. After the well-deserved break, you’ll begin your journey back to Stavanger.

Preikestolen hike - off the beaten track

On an annual basis, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) greets more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Fjord Norway. In 2018, more than 300,000 hikers made their way up to the imposing cliff, which hangs 604 meters over the Lysefjord. From atop nature’s ‘pulpit’, guests enjoy panoramic views of some of the most dramatic scenery Norway has to offer.   Outdoorlife Norway invites you to avoid the crowds by joining our guides on an ‘off the beaten track’ Preikestolen hiking adventure.  Hike in near-solitude through the area’s backcountry while encountering out-of-this-world views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord – which only few have seen.   After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 40-minute ferry ride across one of Stavanger’s urban fjords. Once ashore, your guide will transport you further to the base of the hiking trail. After a warm cup of coffee and an information and safety briefing, you’ll embark on your hiking adventure to Preikestolen. First, you’ll glide in a canoe across the peaceful Refsvatn Lake, which will take approximately 45-minutes.  Once you have your feet back on dry land, you’ll begin the hiking portion of the tour. During 70% of the hike, you’ll follow a backcountry, unmarked trail that is overgrown and has mostly been forgotten. Other than by Outdoorlife Norway’s guides, the trail is rarely used, and the cairns that lead the way through its dense forests are difficult to locate. Once you hike above the tree-line, the trail ceases to exist all together. The remaining 30% of the hike is therefore comprised of off-trail hiking & scrambling. During this portion of the hike, you’ll experience out-of-this-world and rarely-seen views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord. Along the way, your guide will find a comfortable spot to take a lunch break.  After lunch and approximately 3,5 hours on foot, you’ll reach a location that offers panoramic views of Preikestolen that the majority of people only get to see in tourist brochures. After a short break to ensure you’re able to capture great photos of the Pulpit Rock, you’ll hike down to Preikestolen and experience standing atop the impressive plateau, which towers 604 meters above sea level. There, you’ll get to view the 1000 meter-high mountain walls surrounding the 42-kilometer-long Lysefjord from a new perspective. After the break, you’ll begin the long descent back to civilization, which will take approximately 2 hours. Your guide will lead you back to your starting point by following the main trail. Along the way, you’ll walk on paths that have were paved, using locally-sourced stones, by Nepalese sherpas. If the members of your group still have energy to burn, your guide may instead navigate along another off-map trail, where you’ll be able to enjoy the remainder of the hike in near-solitude while you take in the beauty of the Norwegian wilderness from ever-changing perspectives. Once back at the trailhead, your guide will transport you back to Stavanger.

While the wildlife watches, your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain, which includes bogs, forests, and glacier-scoured mountains.   After approximately 2.5 hours of hiking, you’ll reach the Preikestolen plateau just before sunrise. After finding yourself a comfortable place to relax, you’ll watch as the first beams of sunlight climb over the horizon and illuminate the Lysefjord’s steep mountain walls. While relaxing, you’ll have ample time to take photos and enjoy a warm beverage and snack atop Preikestolen.
