Kjerag, Forsand Municipality

4.8
#1 of 8 in Things to do in Forsand Municipality
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.

  • Nice hike up to Kjeragbolten along with spectacular vistage and views on the way up. A bit challenging but well worth the effort and exertion to arrive.  more »
  • The hike to the boulder is quite difficult - very slippery if it’s been raining. Can do this without a guide if you hire a car, not too hard to find with gps. Standing on the rock looks way scarier th...  more »

  • Fantastic hike! Be aware of steep hills and slippery rocks! 3-4hrs to get there. Enjoy!
  • This place is the most beautiful place I have ever visited. The hike takes maximum 5 hours to complete including the the time to takes photos at Kjeragbolten and all the stops a normal person wants for rest. The view at Kjeragbolten is awesome. The parking fees is 200 NOK. Standing on the rock is quite safe just look out for the winds.
  • it is about 5 hrs hiking starting from the park of Kjerag but if you will start from the place where you will leave the ferry, it is 2 km then you will find a 3 km totally dark tunnel (you have to bring a torch or use your mobil as a lamp) when you get to the end of the tunnel there is a 5 km very steep ramp then you will be in the start point of the 2.5 hrs hiking for both ways if you get to Lysebotn at 12 with the ferry you wont find a transportation till 2 o'clock but you can do it hitchhiking and very fast hiking for 4 hrs and take the way back in 1 hr then you will be able to take the ferry back to Lauvvik at 6 PM
  • Wonderful hike but not recommended for small kids under 6 years of age
  • Cool place to visit and standing on the boulder is absolutely amazing.Weather is stunning and watch out for winds while standing on the rock.
