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.

  • Great for a outdoor hiking trip
  • Plan for the hike properly. I was there in September and it was windy. Always check for rain forecast as this hike will become difficult in rains. Do not attempt if you have knee issues.
  • Loved this place. Awesome hardcore trekking experience which will be everlasting memory in my life
  • 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.
