ITINERARY

 

Day 1 / Friday – Start 3-day Kjerag Basecamp Winter Trek

At Outdoorlife Norway´s head quarter, you will receive an instruction and safety briefing to get you ready for the trek. It is also a great opportunity to get to know the guide(s) and other participants a little bit.

After the briefing, we´ll be transported to the base of the fjord, catching glimpses of some of the region’s many natural landscapes. You’ll then cruise the full length of the Lysefjord by ferry, during which you’ll see world-renowned Preikestolen from below, as well as getting your first glimpses of the Kjerag Boulder. Once back ashore, your guide will lead you on a 8-kilometer-long hike starting at the fjord’s edge and upward to an altitude of 825 meters above sea-level.

Most of today´s hike follows a spectacular winter-closed road, switchbacking its way up through 26 hairpin turns from the village of Lysebotn up to the Sirdal mountains. We will be using spikes or snowshoes if necessary. The last kilometer will be off-road, to reach our pre-set up Kjerag Basecamp, located in a beautiful snow-covered valley.

This portion of the trek is about 4.5 kilometers long and consists of two slopes that are interspersed with a valley. Breathe in the crisp, cool mountain air and experience the magic of hiking in solitude before the beginning of the high-season.

 

Once you reach the edge of the mountain’s plateau, while standing on a 1000-meter-high cliff, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the 42-kilometer-long Lysefjord: some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. At the boulder, hanging a heart-stopping 984 meters above the fjord. you will have time to relax and enjoy your packed lunch.
