After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a ferry ride and drive. View Stavanger from a different perspective and get an overview of the surrounding fjords, islands, and mountains. Note: from 2020, the ferry ride will be replaced by driving through the newly opened Ryfast-tunnel - the world´s longest and deepest undersea road tunnel cars can drive through.
At the trailhead, your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain and onward to the mountain’s plateau. 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 (ice spikes, etc.). Along the way, there will be opportunities to catch your breath 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.
Your hike will conclude with freshly-baked bread and a well-deserved bowl of homemade soup at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. Afterwards, you will be transported back to Stavanger.
