Discover the serenity of Preikestolen away from the usual trails and crowds in a specially curated day-time hiking experience. This tailored excursion promises not just a journey to the iconic cliff but an intimate exploration of the less-trodden paths, allowing you to engage deeply with the tranquility and pristine beauty of nature.

Your adventure begins from Stavanger, where the guide meets you and leads the way to the trailhead after a scenic 40-minute drive. At the start of the trail, you'll receive a comprehensive briefing about the hike, including insights into the trail conditions and valuable hiking tips. With this knowledge, you embark on your journey, the guide expertly navigating you through less known routes and hidden spots, enriching your experience with the untouched beauty of the surroundings.

The hike is thoughtfully paced to ensure you have ample time to adjust your gear, rest, and savor the moments. It's a perfect opportunity to indulge in the tranquility, capture stunning photographs, and enjoy snacks surrounded by nature's splendor. After about 2.5 hours of hiking, the climax of your adventure unfolds as you reach Preikestolen, standing 604 meters above the majestic Lysefjorden. The sheer cliff face offers a panoramic spectacle of the fjord below, a breathtaking reward for the effort and anticipation.

Having soaked in the views and enjoyed a moment of relaxation at the summit, the return journey begins. The descent, taking roughly 2 hours, leads you back to the starting point, offering a reflective time to embrace the day's experiences. Finally, as you're comfortably driven back to Stavanger, the memories of the day's adventure linger, leaving you with a sense of fulfillment and a renewed connection with nature.
