Every year, approximately 300,000 hikers are expected to find their way up to Preikestolen, hanging an impressive 604 meters above the Lysefjord. 

However, Preikestolen is not the only stunning viewpoint along the fjord. It might not even be the best. Our guides have hiked all along the Lysefjord to find true hidden pearls. And we think we have found one. Want to see for yourself?

This is a perfect trip if you have less time in Stavanger and/or want to join a shorter hike. We will make sure you experience nature in a stressless way, while enjoying a highly diverse mixture of the finest sceneries the Stavanger Region has to offer. Join us on an alternative ”Lysefjord View Hike” to avoid the crowds and hike in near-solitude.

This half-day hike is 50% shorter than the hike to Preikestolen, and has also just 50% of the elevation gain. The trail is hardly visited, and if we see people, they will most likely be locals. This gives us time to truly enjoy the silence of nature and out-of-this-world views on the Lysefjord. You will not see Preikestolen, but you will have an authentic experience and unique pictures to take home.

We have time to explore more of the stunning fjord and mountain landscapes in the region. On our way to the trailhead, a 40 minute fjord crossing by ferry will provide us with views on Stavanger and the surrounding fjords, islands and mountains.

After the 2.5 hour hike,you travel a different route back to Stavanger, to see more of the landscape diversity in our region. We will take another but shorter fjord ferry ride, where you will see the ’mouth’ of the Lysefjord, before returning to Stavanger. Back in the city, we end the trip with a leisurely sightseeing walk through the Old Town.

Duration: 6.5 hours
The hike itself takes approximately 2.5 hours.
Season: April – October
