Kjerag, Forsand Municipality

#2 of 17 in Nature in Rogaland
Must see · Mountain · Nature / Park
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.

  • Amazing!!!! It worth to go there. The view just takes your breath away...and being close to that stone it's just crazy, maxim adrenaline.😍
  • Literally amazing trip, but definitely not an easy one.
  • Landcapes are stunning the entire hiking. It is hard for beginners but doable. We took 5 hours round trip with a break for photos and lunch. Be careful, it can be slippery. We chose to come in bus with Gofjords from Stavenger.
  • Awesome place to hike! Total hike is 4.8km one way.
  • Fantastic photo opportunity, with not too bad of a hike. Hike took us around 1.5 hours each way. Did it in shorts and running shoes, but definitely need a jacket since it's windy and cold at the top. The rock itself is very dangerous and scary stepping out to, but worth the picture.
