Enjoy Preikestolen from its best angles! Gaze on the towering rock formation from the fjord. A few hours later you will be on the top yourself.

This trip offers the total Preikestolen package. It combines a fjord cruise through the stunning Lysefjord with an exhilarating hike up to Preikestolen ( Pulpit Rock).

The fjord cruise sails from Stavanger through beautiful landscapes of idyllic islands, rocky shores, steep mountains and powerful waterfalls. Step out on the open deck and get a better view of the mysterious Fantahålå (Vagabond’s Cave) and get up close to the Hengjane Falls where you can feel the spray of mountain water.

You will depart the cruise at Forsand where a bus is waiting to take you to the starting point of the Preikestolen hike. The hike takes about 2 hours each way. It’s a beautiful hike, but don’t underestimate the trail as it is demanding. The hike unguided so make sure to pack plenty of food and drinks to keep your energy level up.

At the end of your hike, the bus is waiting to take you back to Stavanger at 18:00 (6 p.m.)
