Description

This majestic geographical legacy rises 1000 m above the Lysefjorden, and is a real natural beauty. Admire an astonishing view over the fjord or take a walk to the top of Kjeragbolten for an adrenaline boost.

 The mountainside that swoops vertically to the fjord below is an impressive sight from the deck of a boat. Understandably, Kjerag is a seductress of mountain climbers and basehoppers alike in the summer time. There is a marked trail from Øygardstøl, 4-6 hours return trip, through physically demanding terrain. Remember sturdy hiking boots, suitable clothes and a packed lunch.

Take the Stavanger-Lysebotn ferry before driving up the hairpin bends to the parking area at Øygardstøl (parking fee). Alternatively, drive from Stavanger towards Ålgård, follow trunk road Rv45, signposted from Sirdal to Lysebotn (152 km).

Between the end of June and the end of august there is a bus connection to Øygardstøl, where the hike starts.
The bus leaves from Fiskepirteminalen in Stavanger at 7.30 am and from Sandnes bus station at 7.50 am. After the hike up Kjerag you will return by bus to Sandnes and Stavanger. Duration of the whole trip: 13,5 hours. Tickets can be booked at www.tidereiser.no

The hike to Kjerag is only possible in the summer!
