Preikestolen is the perfect scene for a majestic morning high in the mountains. The highlight is the spectacular view from the sheer cliff face, towering 604 meters above the majestic Lysefjord. Being present to witness the silent at dawn is another experience unlike any other. It is a fantastic reward after all the work it took to get there.

The drive from Stavanger to the start of the trail (where restrooms are available), takes about 40 minutes. From Jørpeland it takes 10 minutes by car.

If conditions allow it, you get access to alternate routes with exclusive photo opportunities while experiencing some of the best scenery Ryfylke and Fjord Norway have to offer.

The pace allows for time to adjust clothes and equipment, time to rest and enjoy snacks, and for taking pictures, both along the way and at the top.

This hike is perfect if you want to avoid the thousands of people that will be on the trail during the high-season days.

Hike with a guide, then you don't have to worry about logistics or timing.
