The hike to Preikestolen

The hike up to Preikestolen is one of the most popular in Norway. The view from the plateau towering high above the Lysefjord is incredible and has been described as one of the world's most spectacular viewpoints by both Lonely Planet and CNN.

The hike up to Preikestolen is challenging, and the trail has a total length of 8 kilometres. With the express bus, you have five hours at your disposal to complete the hike, which should be sufficient time for most people, including breaks.

Sherpas from Nepal have made an incredible effort to improve the trail, which is well-marked and goes through varied terrain. It is recommended to wear good mountain boots and bring a small backpack so that you are prepared for weather changes.
