What to expect

After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 30-minute transfer to the base of the hiking trail, including driving the world´s longest undersea road tunnel. After a short briefing at the trailhead, you’ll embark on your journey to Preikestolen. Your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain and onward to the mountain’s plateau. Along the way, when trail conditions permit, you’ll hike to lesser-known, exclusive viewpoints. This early in the year, weather conditions are constantly changing and the trail is often covered with snow and ice, even well into springtime. As needed, you’ll adjust the equipment to match the changes in terrain. Along the way, there will be opportunities to catch your breath, enjoy a warm beverage, and snap photos of the spectacular nature around you.

After 2.5-3.5 hours of trekking, you’ll be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. Standing atop the 604-meter-high cliff, the views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains are nothing short of awe-inspiring. You’ll be one of the few that have experienced Preikestolen off-season.

After a well-deserved break at the cliff’s edge, your guide will lead you back down to the trail-head, which will take about 2 hours. If conditions allow, your guide will take a slightly different route on the way back down from Preikestolen. This alternative path is not found on any maps, and will, therefore, allow you to avoid anyone who might be on their way up the main trail.

Your hike will conclude beside Refsvatn Lake, where you’ll enjoy freshly-baked bread and a well-deserved (and delicious!) bowl of homemade soup at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge (February – April). After lunch, and a few last breathes of crisp mountain air, you’ll return as a group to Stavanger.

    Guided hike to Månafossen

    Månafossen waterfall, which is fed by the Mån river, plunges 92 meters into the canyon below. The force of the waterfall, which is flanked by steep granite walls, produces a dazzling display of mist and rainbows. As it is almost inaccessible by public transportation, the waterfall remains relatively unknown, even among locals, making it a true hidden gem for tourists.
