About 10,000 years ago, the last ice age ended and massive glaciers scraped their way from the mountain tops down toward sea level. In the process, Norway’s rugged landscapes, most notably its fjords, were formed. At some point, the famous Kjerag boulder was wedged into a mountain crevasse. Ever since, the ‘Majesty of the Lysefjord’ has been suspended a heart-stopping 984 meters over the fjord.

Would you like to visit Kjerag during the high-season but want to avoid the crowds? Are you an early bird who enjoys the tranquility of hiking in near-solitude?


Join Outdoorlife Norway on an early-morning summer hike to the famous Kjerag boulder, and enjoy the spectacular Lysefjord in near-solitude. Hike in small groups on trails that have been upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas, and enjoy the exhilaration of standing atop the boulder before the crowds of tourists arrive. Relax and savor the views while you’re transported by cruise through the Lysefjord.

This is a demanding 6-hour, 11 kilometer hike with a total ascent of 800 meters. Suitable for adults (16 yrs. +) who are in very good condition and have previous hiking experience.
