The trail is well signposted with red T’s and where there are no other indicators designating the path, cairns (or human-made stacks of stones) provide guidance. Depending on weather and time of year, the rocks may become slippery and there may be patches of snow. There are a number of more demanding portions along the way, with possibly the most challenging at the very start. Chain railings have been secured onto the face of the steep rock and along the trail for your safety and support. Previous hiking experience is recommended, as well as a good physical condition.
Hikers should be prepared with clothes and shoes suitable for the weather conditions and difficult terrain. Hiking boots are strongly encouraged, or approach shoes, as the absolute least. Please be advised that we reserve the right to refuse participants with lesser type of shoes and we do this for your own safety. Other suggestions include warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.
Bring some water with you to keep hydrated, preferably in a container we can refill on the trail. Norwegian mountains are full of crystal clear, clean and very tasty water sources. Lunch will not be provided, but we suggest that you bring your own lunch.
Last but not least, each hiker is responsible for carrying his/her own gear, so a suitable backpack is recommended.
Standard package NOK 1,200,-. The price of this trip includes transportation and covers the guide’s expenses.
We have the possibility to accommodate groups larger than 8 hikers. Please contact us for further details.
We pick you up at the location you choose when booking. Note that drop-off location, upon return, will be the same as pickup location.
Estimated pickup would be between 7:00-7:15AM from your accommodation. Be ready 5 minutes before estimated pick up in front of main entrance.
The drive from Stavanger to the Eagle’s Nest, trailhead for this hike, is close to 2.5 hours and not without its charm. Once there, the trail will take us through beautiful mountainous terrain with changing landscape and impressive views of the area. Having reached the Kjerag plateau, after 2 to 3 hours, we will spend time enjoying the view, nature and most likely taking photos. Some may be courageous enough to climb onto the bolt, and if we are lucky, we may be able to observe BASE jumpers diving from cliffs and down to Lysefjorden. We will also enjoy our packed lunch, beverages and some snacks here, before we head back. We expect to arrive back in Stavanger around 06:00 PM.
