Overview

Månafossen (waterfall), Kjerag  and Preikestolen - 60 minutes trip
The 9th largest waterfall in Norway (90 metres tall), and the largest in Rogaland county. The old farm at Mån above the falls is 60-80 minutes hike in steep terrain from the parking lot, where they also fly over. From here they continue across the mountainridge towards Kjerag. You experience this geological formation shaped 10 000 years ago during the ice age. Kjerag is in the Lysefjord, and its highest point is 1 110 metres above sea level, but its northern drop to Lysefjorden attracts the most visitors. The drop is 984 metres (3,228 ft) and is also the site of Kjeragbolten, a 5 m³ stone wedged in between two rocks. Kjerag is a popular hiking destination. Some like to jump onto Kjeragbolten and BASE jumpers from all over the world go there to dive off the high cliffs. The trip continues towards Preikestolen, known in English as Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, a massive cliff 604 metres (1 982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet), almost flat, and undoubtedly the most famous tourist attraction in Norway. After viewing these three breathtaking places they take you over Stavanger city before landing.

The Stavanger area - 20 minutes trip
You fly alongside Gandsfjorden, the small islands surrounding and belonging to Stavanger, before you go back to where you took off.

Jæren - 40 minutes trip
The largest flat lowlands in Norway, stretching from Randaberg in the north to Hå in the south. The coast is flat compared to the rest of the Norwegian coast, and has sandy beaches along most of the coastline. Jæren is one of the most important agricultural areas of Norway, with a long crop period and a varied and well developed livestock production. You fly over several historical spots that the pilot will tell you about while passing.


Preikestolen - 30-40 minutes trip
Also known by the English translations of Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock. It is a massive cliff 604 metres (1 982 feet) above the Lysefjord, opposite the Kjerag plateau. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet), almost flat, and undoubtedly the most famous tourist attraction in Norway. After viewing this breathtaking site you go over Stavanger city before landing.
This helicopter trip can be booked at the Stavanger Tourist Information the day of the trip.
