Overview

Looking to cross the iconic Preikestolen hike off your bucket list?

We offer a comfortable and direct transfer, from central Stavanger to one of the most popular tourist destinations in Norway, with several daily departures.

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.

The return bus will pick you up from the same place it let you off.

PS: Did you know that the granite stair trail partly is man made by Nepalese Sherpas, who are used to carrying their own body weight?

Note that this trip is also available in combination with the Kjerag hike. In this case you would do the Preikestolen hike on day 1 and Kjerag on day 2. If you buy the combination ticket you get 10 % off the original price.

Sights on the trip

  • The hiking terrain

    The hike consists of hilly terrain with a difference in altitude of 350 metres. Along the way you encounter sheltered forest coves and wood paved marshland among others. A granite stairway laid by the Nepalese Sherpas is one of the trail highlight. Did we mention the polished rock surrounded by 3 small ponds just before you reach Preikestolen?

  • 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.)
