Guided hike to Kjerag

Overview

Guided hike to Kjerag

 

The fjord adventure would be incomplete without a trip to Kjerag bolt. The five cubic meter glacial deposit is mysteriously suspended between two rocks, with the location being a world of its own. It inspires to humbleness and gratitude for having been allowed the privilege to experience nature in its utmost purity, from the top of the world. Standing on the boulder itself is not for the faint of heart and visitors to Kjerag should be reminded that what this place has to offer is more than just an impressive boulder. Chances are you will be in awe of nature’s unmistakable beauty the entire trip, culminating with the breathtaking vistas over the Lysefjord.

 

BASE jumpers challenge their limits on a regular basis from this majestic location and visitors may get the chance to see the “flying” daredevils in action.

 

We also offer the Lysefjord cruise option for the way back.

 

ABOUT THE TRAIL

DISTANCE: 4.5km (each way)

DURATION: 2 to 3 hours (each way)

LEVEL: Moderate to Difficult

 

GOOD TO KNOW

TRAIL START/FINISH

Out-and-back from Eagle’s Nest

 

SEASON

Mid-June to mid-October, or depending on snow conditions

 

TRAIL CONDITIONS

The trail is well signposted with red T’s and where there are no other indicators designating the path, cairns (or human-made stacks of stones) provide guidance. Depending on weather and time of year, the rocks may become slippery and there may be patches of snow. There are a number of more demanding portions along the way, with possibly the most challenging at the very start. Chain railings have been secured onto the face of the steep rock and along the trail for your safety and support. Previous hiking experience is recommended, as well as a good physical condition.

 

LOWEST/HIGHEST POINT

641 m (2103 ft.)/1,020 m (3,346 ft.) above sea level

 

GEAR AND SNACKS

Hikers should be prepared with clothes and shoes for rainy weather and difficult terrain. Hiking boots are strongly encouraged, or approach shoes, as the absolute least. Please be advised that we reserve the right to refuse participants with lesser type of shoes and we do this for your own safety. Other suggestions include warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.

 

Have some water with you to keep hydrated, preferably in a container we can refill on the trail. Norwegian mountains are full of crystal clear, clean and very tasty water sources. Lunch will not be provided, but we suggest that you bring your own snack.

 

Last but not least, each hiker is responsible for carrying his/her own gear, so a suitable backpack is recommended.

 

TIP

The red-T’s are the mark of Turistforening/Norwegian Trekking Association (link) for all trails around the country.

The drive from Stavanger to the Eagle’s Nest, our starting point for this hike, is close to 2.5 hours and not without its charm. Once there, the trail will take us through beautiful mountainous terrain with changing landscape and impressive views of the area. Having reached the Kjerag plateau, after 2 to 3 hours, we will spend time enjoying the view, nature and most likely taking photos. Some may be courageous enough to climb onto the bolt, and if we are lucky, we may be able to observe BASE jumpers diving from cliffs and down to Lysefjorden. We will also enjoy our packed lunch, beverages and some snacks here, before we head back. We expect to arrive back in Stavanger around 07:15 PM.
