Kjerag Express Bus

1x Adult

0,-

Attracting thrillseekers from all over the world, the Kjerag Boulder is a famous conundrum. Our bus will bring you from Stavanger to Øygardstøl, the starting point of this spectacular hike, and back again.

Wedged in a mountain crevice sits the Kjerag Boulder. Suspended nearly 1,000 m (3280 ft) above sea level, the plain sight of the boulder gets the adrenaline pumping. Our bus takes you from Stavanger city centre to the starting point of the hiking trail up Kjerag mountain.

The boulder is located at Kjerag mountain, which towers high above the other peaks surrounding the beautiful Lysefjord. When you reach the boulder, you’re spoiled with breathtaking views of the boulder itself, as well the other majestic mountains around you and the Lysefjord running beneath you.

You have 6 hours to complete the hike and the path is well-marked. When you're down safe and sound, our bus drives you back to Stavanger.
