Kjerag, Forsand Municipality

#4 of 39 in Parks in Rogaland
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.

  • A little demanding trip up and down where you have to use the chain to get some forward position. Rain makes these parties fight smooth and with oncoming traffic there will be extra difficult. Be careful and patient so you will be fine. When you reach the bolt is all worth it! Having stood on the stone and been taken picture of provides a good portion of coping feeling. There are several places on the road one can fill the water bottle.
