We invites you to experience a unique Preikestolen hiking adventure, guaranteed to be crowd-free! Join us on this unique hike to Preikestolen and delight in the crisp stillness of Norway’s long, dark winter. Hike in near-solitude while encountering breathtaking views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord, which are often blanketed in snow this time of year.
Your professional guide will meet you early-morning at your selected meeting point and transport you to the base of the hiking trail. After a short briefing, you’ll embark on your journey to Preikestolen. Your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain and onward to the mountain’s plateau. This early in the year, weather conditions are constantly changing and the trail is often covered with snow and ice. As needed, you’ll adjust the equipment you use to match the changes in terrain. Along the way, there will be opportunities to catch your breath, enjoy a warm beverage, and the guide will navigate to the best vantage points, where you’ll be able to snap photos of the spectacular nature around you. After 2.5-3.5 hours* of trekking, you’ll be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. Standing atop the 604-meter-high cliff, the views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains are nothing short of awe-inspiring. On top of that, you’ll have the privilege of becoming one of the very few to have experienced Preikestolen during wintertime.
After a well-deserved break at the cliff’s edge, your guide will lead you back down to the trail-head, which will take about 2 hours*. The tour ends with transportation back to Stavanger. The tour ends in Stavanger at approximately* 18:30 (6:30pm). (You will be dropped-off at the same location from which you were picked-up.)
*Due to the possibility of changing weather conditions, your trip may last longer than approximated.
