Description de l'activité

Summit 'gunshot' mountain for the ultimate test of mind over matter on this scenic hiking excursion in Ryfylke, Northern Norway.

Wedged between the sheer cliff faces of the Kjerag, the infamous Kjeragbolten teeters above the icy fjord below. Named 'gunshot' mountain after the loud bangs followed by smoke that sometimes occur at the summit, Kjerag and its infamous boulder in Ryfylke is one of Norway's most visited tourist attractions. Avoid the crowds without compromising on knee-trembling adventure on this local-led scenic excursion along the Eagle’s Nest Trail at 1084m above sea level.

Location
Popular with mountaineers and base jumpers, the Kjeragbolten is suspended above the Lysefjord (a 42km fjord). During summer you can get to Kjerag by taking the tourist car ferry (The Fjords) to Lysebotn and then go by car or taxi further up to Øygardstøl, the starting point of the trip. In high season, you can also go by bus from Stavanger to Øygardstøl (Tide Buss).

Activity
Meet your guide at your preferred meeting place for a 6-hour scenic hike to the summit of Kerag in Ryfylke. Drive to Høgsfjord for a speed ferry crossing under a suspension bridge that spans the mouth of the Lysefjord - passing the famous Preikestolen cliff, which towers 604 meters above sea-level. Travel to the start of the Eagle’s Nest trail and reach the edge of the mountain’s plateau at 1000m for views over the Lysefjord. Cliff-side, you’ll have plenty of time to rest and, if you’re feeling brave, you’ll have the opportunity to stand atop the Kjerag Boulder. Base-jumping is legal in Norway, so if you’re lucky, you’ll get to watch as daredevils hurdle themselves off the side of the cliff. After the lunch break, your guide will lead you back down to the Eagle’s Nest - returning to Stavanger via coach.

Conditions
The hike to Kjerag is relatively demanding: you’ll trek 11 kilometres (round-trip) with an ascent of 800 meters.  During the approximately 2.5-hour hike to the boulder, you’ll encounter 3 periods of steep climbing interspersed with 2 shallow valleys. Along the way, you’ll enjoy views of Lysebotn, which is situated at the head of the Lysefjord. Please note that Kjerag Boulder is not accessible in poor weather conditions (high winds, rain, low visibility, snow or ice).
