Conquer the three legendary hiking highlights of the Norwegian Fjords, sightseeing in beautiful Bergen and Old Stavanger, pancakes for breakfast on the pulpit rock, defy gravity on Kjerag's famous boulder and pose 700m above fjord level on Trolltunga!
Trolltunga, Kjerag and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) must be the most famous rocks in the world, and all three of these rock stars lay nestled deep in the beautiful Norwegian Fjords. Trolltunga (1100m), a thin sliver of granite, juts out into space 700m above Lake Ringedalsvatnet, a breathtaking reward after a long and mighty hike. On Preikestolen (600m), it won’t just be about the stunning view, but about breakfast too, as you eat fresh pancakes cooked by our guide on the summit as the dawn rises. If you dare stand on Kjerag’s (1110m) gravity-defying boulder, that will be a memory and adrenaline rush of a lifetime. We’ve devised a week’s holiday that not only summits all three iconic rocks but recognizes that the Norwegian Fjords are another super-star attraction in itself.
Along with the great hiking, there’s time to discover Old Stavanger’s famous wooden houses and relax in the quaint and sleepy fjord-side town of Rosendal. The holiday ends in Bergen and an optional extra evening would give you the weekend to sightsee in this beautiful UNESCO world-heritage city. We have chosen accommodation of simple standard but beloved by Norwegians. Flørli Historic Hostel can only be reached by boat along Lysefjord, and we’ve booked the wood-fired hot tub overlooking the fjord for a post-Kjerag session. You find Preikestolen Mountain Lodge at the shores of idyllic Lake Refsvatn – you can choose to paddle, kayak or SUP on the lake on your free afternoon or take the challenge of Norway’s most extended zip wire. An iconic Norwegian bucket-list set in the magnificence of the Norwegian Fjords.
