Embark on an extraordinary adventure to Preikestolen, a journey designed for those who yearn for solitude and the untouched wilderness of the mountains. This definitive day-hike offers a unique experience, combining the tranquility of canoeing with the thrill of hiking an old, nearly forgotten trail, known only to locals and expertly unveiled by our guide.

Your day begins in Stavanger, where the guide awaits to escort you on a 40-minute drive to Preikestolen Basecamp. Upon arrival, you prepare for the first leg of your adventure - a serene canoe trip across the Revsvatnet lake. After equipping yourself with life vests and ores, the guide provides thorough instructions on safe canoeing, alongside valuable information about the trail ahead and essential hiking tips. With everyone ready, you paddle across the reflective waters of the lake, immersing yourself in the calm and beauty of the surroundings.

Reaching the opposite shore, you embark on the hiking portion of your journey, treading an old trail rediscovered by a pioneering local guide. This nearly secret path offers an intimate experience with nature, far from the beaten track, allowing you and your small group to enjoy the silence, save for the sounds of the wilderness. The hike is paced considerately, ensuring time for adjustments, rest, and the enjoyment of snacks, all while capturing the stunning vistas with your camera.

After roughly 3 hours of hiking, the grandeur of Preikestolen reveals itself, standing 604 meters above the legendary Lysefjorden. The sight of the sheer cliff face overlooking the fjord is a breathtaking reward, offering panoramic views that encapsulate the essence of the adventure.

Post-admiration of the spectacular scenery, the journey back begins. The descent, taking about 2.5 hours, is a time to reflect on the day's experiences and the unique connection made with nature. Finally, as you're comfortably driven back to Stavanger, the memories of a day filled with adventure, tranquility, and awe linger, leaving you with a profound sense of fulfillment and wonder.
