Enjoy a hike to one of Norway’s main tourist attractions: the Preikestolen rock formation, where you’ll see a sunrise like no other.
Hiking in Norway at Sunrise
After picking you up from a meeting point of your choice, we’ll head to Jørpeland, the nearest town to Preikestolen, also known as the “Preacher’s Chair”, located on the fjord of Lysefjord, at 604 metres above sea level.
When we begin this early morning hike, we’ll be able to enjoy the route without lots of other tourists. After an almost 8 km walk and a 500 m climb, we’ll arrive at the Preikestolen cliff and admire how the first sun rays light up the mountains that rise up from the fjord of Lysefjord; a sight you’ll never forget!
Once we’ve captured this natural wonder in our memories and cameras forever, we’ll have a well-deserved breakfast before beginning the journey back to our hotels.
- The hiking activity is designed for people with a good level of fitness. The hike is approximately 6.3 miles (10 kilometres) and you'll climb to over 1600 feet (500 metres).
