Join us on an off-season hike to Preikestolen and experience the spectacular Lysefjord during Norway’s wintertime! Spend a night at the wonderful Preikestolen Mountain Lodge before or after the hike.
Have you ever been hiking through snow and ice? Just a stone’s throw outside of Stavanger, the region’s majestic mountains rise hundreds of meters straight out of the sea. During much of the winter, the mountaintops are blanketed in thick layers of snow and the trail to Preikestolen is almost deserted in comparison with other times the of year. Those who venture up the trail experience the peace and solitude that comes with the stillness of wintertime.
Because of the presence of snow and ice, hiking to Preikestolen without a guide during the wintertime is not recommended. Our professional guides are trained to safely maneuver through the frozen landscape as well as winter’s rapidly changing weather conditions. They carry with them all necessary navigation, safety, first-aid, and outdoor winter equipment.
Included in this package is accommodation (one-night, including dinner & breakfast) at the wonderful Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, before or after your hike. The mountain lodge, which overlooks the trainquil Refsvatn lake, is widely known throughout Europe, as it is architecturally unique and environmentally friendly. The special character of the building, which was designed by the architect firm Helen and Hard, and its harmonious interaction with nature offers visitors a memorable experience.
Suitable for people of most ages – excluding children younger than 12 yrs. – who are in general good condition, and have previous hiking experience.
