In addition to our round-trip ticket, we also offer a one-way bus transfer between Stavanger and Preikestolen. This is an option for people who would like to spend more time exploring the Preikestolen and Lysefjorden area.
Preikestolen may still be the star attraction of your trip. The glacial rock formation that makes up Preikestolen, towers 604 meters above the Lysefjord. The hike is of moderate difficulty. In total, the 8-kilometer hike takes about 4-5 hours round trip. However, take your time. There is plenty of beautiful spots to rest along the way.
Tip: Berry picking, swimming or different hikes exploring troll forests or idyllic ponds are some of the other activities the region has to offer if you choose to spend some extra time there.
Sights on the trip
Preikestolen lies in the southernmost part of the Ryfylkeheiane mountains. The area consists of high mountain plateaus with steep drops down to the fjords, along with peaks, hills, lakes and bogs. There is a well-developed network of paths here, along with many tourist cabins. The area is also important for the production of electricity.
Ryfast sub-sea tunnel
Just outside Stavanger you will pass through the longest undersea road tunnel in the world. The tunnel system is brand new replacing the old ferry that used to traffic between Stavanger and Tau on the way to Preikestolen. It is 14,3 kilometres long, which puts it well ahead of its predecessor, the Tokyo Bay Tunnel in Japan (9583 m.)
