In Norway, one does not have to step far from the city to enjoy nature and spectacular fjord landscapes. Lifjell is one such summit close to the heart of civilisation. The path takes visitors through green, mossy forest, but it is not long before the terrain changes to expose rocks and typical northern flora of spruce, bushes and shrubs, such as blueberry plants and dwarf juniper, and the common heather (or ling) so loved by Norwegian bees. The top offers incredible views over the city of Stavanger, the northern part of Jæren, the North Sea and the islands in the fjord around Stavanger.
We also offer this an afternoon hike as well as an easier option that follows a dirt road to the top.
