A breathtaking, pulpit-shaped cliff jutting 604 meters above Lysefjord that’s been featured in a Mission Impossible movie? Or a spectacular boulder wedged in a crevice atop Kjerag mountain that has thrillseekers flocking from all four corners of the world? 

This package includes 2 nights at Scandic City in Stavanger and the choice between 2 iconic hiking adventures.

Did you know that Stavanger is not only one of the most vibrant cities in the country but also your gateway to some of the most impressive rock formations you’ve ever seen in your life? Norway’s third largest city is the ideal base for all your Lysefjord activities — and for checking some very exciting hiking adventures off your bucket list!

On our full day tour from Stavanger, you’ll get to choose between visiting 2 of Norway’s most awe-inducing rock formations, 

Option 1: Kjerag 
This is a challenging hike. The total elevation gain is 460 meters (1,500 ft). The boulder is wedged in a mountain crevice suspended almost 1,000 meters (3280 ft) above the Lysefjord. You have 6 hours to complete the 9,8 km (6 mi) return hike and the path is well-marked.

Option 2: Preikestolen 
The hike is 8 km (,49 mi) long and takes approximately hours round trip. The route is well marked with lots of red-painted markers making it easy to stay in the path.  Parts of the train have beautiful granite stairways engineered by Nepalese Sherpas.

Whatever option you pick, you’ll get amazing photos and memories to last you a lifetime! Plus, the comfortable and direct bus transfer to and forth ensures you’ll have time to prepare and unwind.

Before and after your high-octane hike, at the urban Scandic Stavanger City hotel in the heart of Stavanger, you can relax and unwind. Ready to go hiking?
