Length: 15.8 mi • Est. 9 h 3 m
Great hike and breath-taking views along the way. It can get crowded, but is worth the visit. Note: there are temporary seasonal closures in this area. Please consult the Trolltunga Trail Information website before visiting. 1 June–30 September: Guided hiking recommended. Experienced hikers can hike on their own. 1 October–31 May: Guided hiking only. Parking: Get to the parking lot (P2) just before 6 am (that's when its empty). It is 500 NOK to park here. P1 is quite far (down at Tyssedal, 40 km total hike) and the shuttle doesn’t start running til June. The higher option (P3) takes a big chunk out of the hike, but the road doesn’t open for cars until June.Show more

Length: 5.5 mi • Est. 3 h 20 m
Located in Western Norway in the municipality of Forsand (just south of Jørpeland) in Rogaland County, this trail goes to Preikestolen (also known as Pulpit Rock) and is one of Norway's most popular hiking trails. Looking out over the Lysefjord from the plateau of Pulpit Rock is an incredible experience with spectacular views 1,982 feet above sea level. You can reach the trailhead by car or by public transportation (which requires a ferry ride followed by a bus). The trail's starting point is at the mountain lodge Preikestolen Fjellstue where there is a parking area. Allow a few hours to complete this hiking trip. If you prefer, you can choose to do a tour with a travel guide which run daily from April to October (dependent on weather), or admire Pulpit Rock from fjord tour on a boat. Preikestolen is a busy trail and you will likely be sharing the it with many people. To avoid crowds, you can start the hike at night and get to the top by sunrise for an incredible view. Make sure to wear hiking shoes, as there are some rocky sections on the hike. This is a relatively easy hike compared to other hikes in Norway but is not recommended for young children. If you are looking for lodging, there are a few places to stay nearby including Preikestolen Fjellstue and Lilland Hotell. You can also stay in Stavanger and take a fjord cruise on the Lysefjord. Make sure to check the weather forecast prior to heading out your trip.Show more

Length: 6.1 mi • Est. 3 h 26 m
Kjeranbolten is a boulder suspended 984 meters (3,228 ft) above Lysefjord. The rock was wedged in place in the year 50,000 B.C by a massive glacier and today is a popular tourist destination and an amazing viewpoint. The hike covers over 2500 feet and 8 miles round trip, but you should still expect to share the viewpoint with many other photo seekers who have made the trek. Older children can do this hike, but keep in mind that it is a strenuous walk and there are many ledges.Show more

Incredible hike! The steps lead almost to the top. The last part can be a bit slippery in rainy weather. Heavily trafficked path. The summit of Reinebringen rewards with impressive views. Please note: the road that leads to the starting point can be closed for several weeks. Please check with the local authorities for the status of the road.Show more

Length: 9 mi • Est. 6 h
Take a boat from Gjendesheim to Memurubu in order to make a one way hike with epic lake view the entire way. Can also be done as a multi day backpacking trip. There is no parking at the ferry dock where the hike begins so park in the lot about a half mile up the road and there is a shuttle from there. Beautiful hike with a breathtaking scenery. There is a good rocky scramble but would not want to attempt it in snow or strong wind. Good hiking gear is a must. The trail is well marked and plenty of other hikers. Show more

Views are incredible - mountains in every direction! Some spots on the route may be too treacherous to some, including one spot where you pull yourself up using a chain to climb on to the next ledge and you are right at the cliff edge as you do so. Definitely not for the faint of heart, or folks who don’t have significant difficult hiking experience. You can also do the climb to the first view point, and then head back down the same way (you can park in the lot). That gets you mostly the same views, without the chain climb sections. Show more

This long hike is challenging, yet so rewarding. At the summit you'll find "Skålatårnet," a tower sitting atop the peak. A great overview over the village of Loen, as well as the surrounding mountains, fjords, glaciers, and all around beautiful landscape.Show more

Great trail with excellent views. Moderate difficulty and can be muddy after it rains. The trail does get busy but isn't overwhelmed. If you want to see few people arrive before 10 am. There are three to five spaces near the trailhead for cars otherwise you need to park at a residence which costs money (i.e. you need cash).Show more

A less popular route to Ulriken from Vidden, featuring the Stoltzekleiven stairs to the Sandvikspilen viewpoint (highly recommended). Take the Ulriksbanen cable car up from Bergen. From there it is a gentle path west towards Floyen, where the view is even better. Downside of walking this direction is that the best views disappear further into the hike until you get to Ulriken. The trail starts with comfortable and clear paths to the radio tower on Vidden, and then turns into more a walk on large rocks - have good shoes and strong feet! The trail is marked with a series of rockpiles on the mountain ridge. There are a couple of scrambles, which involve navigating dips in the mountain ridge, climbing down and then back up again two or three steep and high rock features.Show more
