Tour description

The tour starts from Stavanger on a quiet fjord cruise with a new electric boat that sails silently in the beautiful fjord landscape on the Lysefjord. You get to see Preikestolen from the fjord where Tom Cruise climbed the steep mountain wall in the film Mission Impossible 6.
Afterwards, the cruise continues to the mighty Hengjanefoss waterfall. After an exciting fjord cruise, you get off in Forsand, where a bus will bring you to the Preikestolen Cabin where the hike starts from.
The hike takes approx. 2 hours each way and is a wonderful experience! The trip to Preikestolen has a moderate degree of difficulty. The trail goes over bogs, forests, and stone stairs built by Sherpas from Nepal to protect the terrain and facilitate the trip. The path is well marked along the entire road towards Preikestolen.
The actual walk takes between 3 and 4 hours. You return to Stavanger by bus through the world's longest underwater tunnel.
