It is a must see, when you go to Stavanger. It takes around 45‘ minutes from Stavanger Harbour by ferry and another 20‘ by bus to get to the starting point. From there it is a 1.45‘ hike to get there. It can get very...More

This is worth the view at the top. Took us about 2 hours to reach the top, on our favourite spots during our stay. Recommend you wear good hiking boots. Not good for young children or elderly. View is spectacular.

Astonishing place. Beautiful wherever you look at! Out of this Earth! Demanding walk to the top, but it is really worth it.

If you are in poor physical condition, do not attempt this hike. Now to the fun stuff. At approximately 8 kms or 5 miles, this round trip hike is a lot of fun and a decent challenge. There are some areas of extreme inclines (about...More
