Preikestolen cruise & guided hike – winter

Enjoy challenges? Hate crowds? Love spectacular scenery? This combination tour is for you.

First cruise magnificent Lysefjord, stunning in its winter glow, past charming islands, sheer mountains and mighty waterfalls. Taste mountain water from the Hengjane Falls (if it isn’t frozen), see Vagabond’s Cave of legend and gaze up at Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock).

Your guide and transport await in Forsand village for the next leg: A thrilling hike up to the famous Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) plateau for world class, panoramic views. We provide everything, including transport plus crampons and headlamps (if one or both is needed), except warm clothing, solid hiking boots and a packed lunch/beverages. In summer, tourists crowd the trail and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock). In winter, both seem to be yours alone! Return to Stavanger by bus.

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