Preikestolen cruise & hike

Preikestolen cruise & hike

Want a total Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) experience? This is the tour for you. It combines a fjord cruise through stunning Lysefjord with an exhilarating hike up the Pulpit Rock mountain. Our boat sails from Stavanger through unforgettable fjord landscapes of idyllic islands, rocky shores, steep mountains and powerful waterfalls. We take you to Vagabond’s Cave and tell you the legend of this mysterious opening in the mountain. We carefully nudge the boat’s bow up the Hengjane Falls where you can feel the spray of mountain water. Then we drop you off at the village of Forsand to take a bus to the Preikestolen trailhead for a hike to the famous plateau.

After hiking back down, you take a bus back to Stavanger at 18:15.

Our modern, comfortable boats have sundecks, spacious cabins and kiosks offering refreshments, including beer and wine.

Safe travel!
We have flexible cancellation rules and strictly adhere to guidelines laid out by the Norwegian Directorate of Health.
