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.)
Sights on the trip
This gorgeous cove with dramatic cliffs surrounded by an aqua-marine pool, apparently got its name from a group of vagabonds who for months sought shelter there trying to escape the local police. The cove is only accessible from the water, and the boat will get you close.
The hiking terrain
There are plenty of beautiful spots to rest along the trail of this hiking trip. Appreciate the change in scenery as you ascend beyond the treetops and get a panoramic view of the Lysefjord.
Ryfast sub-sea tunnel
The bus will pass through the brand new tunnel in both directions. This is the longest sub-sea tunnel in the world. With a length of 14,3km (8,8mi) it is well ahead of its predecessor, the Tokyo Bay Tunnel in Japan.
