Tour Description

Your professional guide will meet you during the wee-hours of the morning (please select a meeting-point when booking) and transport you to the base of the hiking trail. You’ll start your adventure in the midst of darkness and walk with headlamps through the twilight of the night. After approximately 2.5 hours of trekking, you’ll reach Preikestolen where, after finding yourself a beautiful spot to relax, you’ll watch as the first deep orange beams of sunlight illuminate the steep mountain walls that tower over the Lysefjord.

Long before the first tourist-packed buses arrive from Stavanger, you’ll be on your way back down the trail to conclude your unique hiking experience with a well-deserved breakfast at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. In the late season, we will most likely return too late for breakfast. In that case, the Mountain Lodge will serve you a delicious hot soup and home-made bread instead.

The hike is Moderate Difficulty: Suitable for people of most ages – excluding children younger than 8 yrs. – who are in general good condition, and have previous hiking experience.

The tour ends in Stavanger between* 10:00am and 13:30 (01:30pm).
*This is an approximation which depends highly on the time of year, weather, and other factors.

NOTE: Make sure you book the right date.

You will be picked up (very) early in the morning, and you’ll be back between 10:00am – 13:30 (01:30pm) on the date you select when booking.

You should wear lightweight hiking shoes or hiking boots, and clothing according to the weather.
