Kjerag, Forsand Municipality
(4.9/5 based on 360+ reviews on the web)
Towering above other peaks along the fjord, Kjerag has become a popular destination for hiking, mountain climbing, and base jumping. You can walk up the path following marked trails and traversing several ridges to the plateau or cruise around the fjord and admire the mountain face from a ferry or a sightseeing boat. More adventurous visitors may try climbing the Kjeragbolten, a massive round stone jammed firmly in a mountain crevice. Try to find a spot near the peak where a natural phenomenon triggered by a strong east wind occurs--some locals say you'll hear the sound of a gunshot followed by smoke when the wind blows at a certain intensity. Wear solid hiking shoes and warm clothes, and be sure to take plenty of water and food with you. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kjerag by using our Forsand Municipality tourist route planner.

  • Impressions of the different route. Places where it is necessary to descend or climb through the chains I really liked it there, where you had to go on wet slippery rocks, not very)) places with my growth in 1.55 was extremely difficult as scrambling accounted for very highly positioned between them. Here came to the aid of everyone who was nearby)) not only spouses helped, but other tourists. with the weather on "pea" we were unlucky. It was hidden in the cloud, which was not going to go away. Having stood in the queue for a long time, we took pictures on the "pea" and went back. But if there was a great visibility, I think we would have stayed in it longer! Definitely recommend to visit! don't forget cracking boots! and here's the stick, you can not borrow.

  • The hike to Kjerag extends over three hills with some very steep climb. It's like top arrived on the roof of the world with stunning views of the turquoise waters of Lysefjord. Arrived at the destination the Kjerag expected a rock which miraculously between two mountains is trapped and can be climbed with some courage for the one or the other photo motif one.
