Join Outdoorlife Norway on an autumn hike to Preikestolen, and witness the magic of the season’s shifting colors and post-equinox daylight. Experience Norway’s crisp and cool mountain air while hiking on trails that were recently upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas, who "paved" the way using local stones.

On an annual basis, Preikestolen welcomes more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Norway. In 2017, approximately 300,000 hikers are expected to make their way up to the top of the imposing cliff, which hangs 604 meters above the Lysefjord.

By October, visitor numbers have become dramatically lower than they are during the summer.  The area’s flora and fauna prepare for the long, dark winter, and stillness sets in across Norway’s vast wilderness. Autumn is the perfect time of year to experience the Lysefjord and Preikestolen from a unique perspective. The shadows become longer with every day that passes, and the ambient light seems to dance across the fjord’s mountainsides. Snow, when present, offers a splendid contrast to the flame-colored foliage.
