This is our most demanding tour. It is suitable for well-trained couples or families / groups. You will see both the pulpit rock and get a ride on the road from lysebotn to Kjerag from the sea to 1000 meters. It is especially day four that requires good stamina.

You get with you patch kit, pump, directions, GPS etc. For the tour. Bring swimsuits and towels to take a small bath if you wish. Packed lunches are also important to take away. There is much scenery but few dining places on the trip. It can be from 25 to 5 degrees C, so it is important to look at the weather report before you go.
