Explore Norway's incredible landscape and breathe in the fresh mountain air with the Kjerag Autumn Guided Hiking Tour with Views of the Lysefjord. This autumn adventure will take you to places that many people will never visit and allow you to glimpse sites that many will never see.
Since this hike consists of steep inclines and other mountainous terrains along its 11 km length, it has been rated as more difficult. It means only adults in very good condition, who have extensive hiking experience, should sign up for this particular adventure. You'll want to bring rugged hiking boots, water-resistant pants, fleece or woolen sweater, rainproof jacket, warm socks, small backpack, warm gloves and hat, and a packed lunch along with snacks and water. Several of these items can be rented.
The adventure begins in Stavanger, where your professional guide we'll pick you up to transport you to the hiking trail. The drive lasts for approximately 2.5 hours and will consist of cinematic landscapes with gorgeous mountains, fjords, and green valleys. Your group will navigate over a mountain pass as you make your way through Sirdal and then across a baron, glacier-scoured landscape that looks like it belongs in another world.
Once you reach the trail-head known as the Eagle's Nest, your seasoned guide will adjust the equipment you'll be using, such as ice spikes, to match the often unstable autumn weather conditions. From there, you will be led on a 2.5-hour hike, experiencing beautiful views of my Lysebotn village and encounter three separate areas with steep terrain. Then, over the last two kilometers, you'll be able to take it easy on the relatively flat terrain leading up to the Kjerag boulder.
This rigorous trek will reward you with panoramic views of Lysefjord from the edge of the mountain's plateau. If you're a bit of a daredevil, you'll have the opportunity to stand atop Kjerag's boulder. Then, once you've eaten lunch, your guide will take you back to the Eagle's Nest and then drive you through 26 hairpin turns along the only road to the Lysebotn village. Once there, you will climb aboard a speed ferry for your return to civilization, during which you’ll pass the Preikestolen cliff, waterfalls, and abandoned farms.
