Exploring the exciting hiking destination filled with gorgeous views and tranquil surroundings. Then Preikestolen Autumn Mountain Hiking Tour should be your next choice! Taking place in Norway's famous Lysefjord, this incredible tour attracts a few hundred thousand hikers every year. 

The hike is of moderate difficulty, meaning that it’s best to have past hiking experience and be in generally good physical condition. Guests are asked to bring hiking boots, rain-proof jacket, water-resistant pants, warm hat and gloves, one pair of warm, thick socks, fleece or woolen sweater, small backpack, and packed lunch, water, and snacks. Several of these can be rented through the tour, so be sure to ask.

After being picked up at your hotel or other agreed-upon location, you’ll start with a 40-minute ferry ride from Stavanger that delivers you close to the base of the trail. You’ll be treated to a piping-hot cup of coffee while you view Stavanger from a unique perspective as you’re introduced to breathtaking fjords, islands, and mountains. Once you’ve arrived at the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge and had a quick briefing, your hiking excursion will begin. 

The hiking tour is approximately 8 kilometers and features 2-2.5 hours of gorgeous, panoramic views, with stops along the way for snapping photos. During the Autumn season, Preikestolen exudes a calmness due to numerous types of flora and fauna that have begun to settle down for the long, dark winter that is just a short time away. Once you’ve reached the cliff above the Lysefjord, you’ll briefly rest and enjoy a small snack and warm drink. If conditions allow, you will be taken along an alternate route back to the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, where you will enjoy freshly-baked bread and a homemade bowl of soup. 

Following the delicious meal, your tour guide will utilize a different route back to Stavanger and a second ferry crossing that presents you with a unique perspective of the mouth of the Lysefjord. Your final destination will be the famous Viking memorial site and artwork known as “Swords in Rock” created by local artist Fritz Røed depicting the rumored conquest of Viking king Harald Fairhair that made Norway into one kingdom. 

Taking part in the Autumn Mountain Hiking Tour will be an adventure that you will never forget. The tour is available from October 1st until December 31st, so check availability and sign up today.
