Create an itinerary including Kjerag
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. Using our international travel planner, Forsand Municipality attractions like Kjerag can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This was the best hike in my 10 days here so far. It was difficult in some sections and involves going up 2 steep mountain sections and down 2 steep sections. It took us 6 hours in total but we could have done it in 5 if we didn't have a sick member of our party. I would say 3 bottles of water minimum for the 9.6 km round trip. I'd also take good food. When we went in July it was shorts and t shirt weather and it felt great. Follow the stacked rocks and the trail markers marked with a red T. Also the parking is 300NK for a car. There is no water along the way unless you bring a water filter. There is one shelter half way around the 2.4 km section. Again this is just for storms. When you get to near the end follow signs for kjeragbolten and not the other signs if you want to see the famous rock. Be careful on the rock as sand has accumulated making it slippery for some people. Great Great adventure though. Please for the love of God take good hiking shoes. It gets very slippery even in The dry sections.
  • Kjerag is one the most amazing, beautiful hiking you will ever do in this planet! Approximately 10km from the base to top, it can take between 4 and 6 hours, depending on your rhythm. There is a bus tour that leaves from Stavanger central station at 07:45 and takes you back at 16:30h. It is a 2:30h trip and visuals from the bus are also amazing. Highly recommend!
  • What a fantastic hike with the stone as reward at the end. We were really like with the weather that allowed for a really enjoyable hike. This is not an easy one and requires you do go up some pretty steep rocks but it will definitely be worth it. The round trip is around 9km and the sign gives 5hours as an estimate in terms of time. If you are visiting this part of Norway this is something you don't wanna miss!
  • 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.
  • Spectacular outlook. The hike takes approximately 4 hours (back and forth) . You have to definitely wear good hiking shoes, since it might be very slippery (depends on the weather). Some parts are little bit challenging but there are the chains available in such case.
