Beautiful panorama over Rogaland
Oct 2019
To Lifjell there is an easy and short way and a longer one. The first one goes by car approx. 20 minutes to the start of the trail at Hommersåk, one of the districts of Sandnes city. The walk up to the previously TV/radio mast takes at least one hour (one way!) and could be done almost all through the year. If you plan to walk the longer trip you start at Dale village by the Gandsfjorden about 10 minutes driving outside Sandnes city. You should expect to use the whole day back and forth. Bring food, extra clothes and good footwear. Season: Whole year, but it is of course more cozy at summer time.

A hike not a walk....

We got here by ferry Stavanger to Hommersak. It’s a couple of mile walk to the start of this hike.

The route is varied and very interesting, lots good views interspersed with walks in the trees. We were rewarded with a cafe stop in Dale that was surprisingly inexpensive.

We completed the hike and marched all the way down hill back to meet the ferry.

Highly recommended....allow a good 5 hours for this.

Challangeing hike
Apr 2018
We went for a hike a sunny and wonderful day end of April. We are normally not hiking, so this was a new experience. Thanks to excellent marking along the route there were no problem to find our way in this lovelly landscape. Beutiful view all over Stavanger, and a perfect excercise for the legs...

We can drive our car to Dale or take a bus og bicycle out there. Nice marked hiking routs along the fiord or over the mountains. Marked with red T fro Norsk Turistforening. 4-5 hours to walk the longest roundtrip. Very nice view from the top of Lifjell over the fiord and all to Stavanger- Sandnes - Jæren.

Great hike with amazing view

Absolutely one of the best hikes in the area. You start by the fjord and head upwards to the top. On the way down you can choose to walk a different way, I recommend to choose the one that passes by Dalevann, Well marked, you wont get lost if you follow the signs.

One of the best hikes in Stavanger area
Aug 2015 • Friends
This is a mountain for everyone with an amazing view. For an easy hike you can walk up from Hommersåk side on the road, I have couple of times taken friends and family here. If you don't have a car, you take a ferry from Stavanger to Hommersåk and then walk the whole way up. It's also possible to cycle up. The view is amazing, you can see Stavanger, Sola, Sandnes and so much more. For a proper hike, you start from other side - Dale. It can be very slippery if it's raining. You can chose to hike around the whole mountain and then to the top or a shorter hike. Bring some warm coffee and enjoy the view.

Nice hike, good view.

This hike is very nice. You can choose to go either up and down the same path or to go partly around the mountain - as a roundtrip. None of the hikes are very long. We spent approximately 3 hours doing this hike.

Very nice hike in beautiful surroundings.

Wonderful views from the top. Lifjell is one of the best viewing points at Nord-jæren. From the top you will get a good view of Stavanger and the surrounding areas including the North Sea.
