What to expect on the hike to Kjerag
Roughly 50,000 people hike to the Kjerag boulder every year. The trail is 5 km each way and with a 600 meter (2,600 ft) elevation gain. The duration of the hike varies, but a good rule of thumb is to estimate 3 hours each way.
The hike can be quite tough, with some intensive uphills and potentially slippery rocks. Along some of the most challenging parts, there have been set up chains to help climb the sections. It is a demanding hike even for experienced hikers.
Once you get to the Kjerag boulder you can enjoy stunning views over the Lysefjord’s southern part, and if you dare, step out onto the famous boulder Wedged in a mountain crevasse 1032 meters (3,385 ft) above sea level.
