Experience Preikestolen in its winter glow from both the fjord and the mountain! This day trip combines a fjord cruise on the Lysefjord with a guided winter hike to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock).
The fjord cruise sails from Stavanger to the stunning Lysefjord, past the mysterious Vagabond's Cave (Fantahålå) and beautiful landscapes of rocky shores and snow capped mountain peaks.
Gaze up at the Preikestolen Plateau from below and enjoy a quick stop at Hengjange Falls (Hengjanefossen), where you can feel the spray of mountain water (if it’s not frozen)
You will end the cruise at Forsand, where a mountain guide is waiting to take you on the Preikestolen hike. The hike takes about 2 hours each way. Crampons and headlamps are provided when needed.
Remember to pack food, water, warm clothes and solid hiking boots.
The return to Stavanger is by minibus, and the guide will drop you off at your hotel.
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 catamaran will drive right up to Hengjane Falls. The waterfall springs out from the steep mountainside at a height of 400 metres (1300 ft). It's popular to taste the pure mountain water that's pouring down.
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.
