Overview

A UNIQUE GUIDED TOUR DESIGNED BY OUTDOORLIFE NORWAY! Avoid the crowds, paddle in a canoe, and encounter unique views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord. Includes off-trail hiking and scrambling.

​On an annual basis, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) greets more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Fjord Norway. In 2018, more than 300,000 hikers made their way up to the imposing cliff, which hangs 604 meters over the Lysefjord. From atop nature’s ‘pulpit’, guests enjoy panoramic views of some of the most dramatic scenery Norway has to offer.

Outdoorlife Norway invites you to avoid the crowds by joining our guides on an ‘off the beaten track’ Preikestolen hiking adventure.  Hike in near-solitude through the area’s backcountry while encountering out-of-this-world views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord – which only few have seen.

After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 40-minute ferry ride across one of Stavanger’s urban fjords. Once ashore, your guide will transport you further to the base of the hiking trail. After a warm cup of coffee and an information and safety briefing, you’ll embark on your hiking adventure to Preikestolen. First, you’ll glide in a canoe across the peaceful Refsvatn Lake, which will take approximately 45-minutes.  Once you have your feet back on dry land, you’ll begin the hiking portion of the tour. During 70% of the hike, you’ll follow a backcountry, unmarked trail that is overgrown and has mostly been forgotten. Other than by Outdoorlife Norway’s guides, the trail is rarely used, and the cairns that lead the way through its dense forests are difficult to locate. Once you hike above the tree-line, the trail ceases to exist all together. The remaining 30% of the hike is therefore comprised of off-trail hiking & scrambling. During this portion of the hike, you’ll experience out-of-this-world and rarely-seen views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord. Along the way, your guide will find a comfortable spot to take a lunch break. 

After lunch and approximately 3,5 hours on foot, you’ll reach a location that offers panoramic views of Preikestolen that the majority of people only get to see in tourist brochures. After a short break to ensure you’re able to capture great photos of the Pulpit Rock, you’ll hike down to Preikestolen and experience standing atop the impressive plateau, which towers 604 meters above sea level. There, you’ll get to view the 1000 meter-high mountain walls surrounding the 42-kilometer-long Lysefjord from a new perspective. After the break, you’ll begin the long descent back to civilization, which will take approximately 2 hours. Your guide will lead you back to your starting point by following the main trail. Along the way, you’ll walk on paths that have were paved, using locally-sourced stones, by Nepalese sherpas. If the members of your group still have energy to burn, your guide may instead navigate along another off-map trail, where you’ll be able to enjoy the remainder of the hike in near-solitude while you take in the beauty of the Norwegian wilderness from ever-changing perspectives. Once back at the trailhead, your guide will transport you back to Stavanger.
