About: Location of Stavanger

These two great places are located near Stavanger (west/south Norway). If you use your mouse on the map to the right, you will see where the Kjeragbolt is located. Preikestolen is further out in the Lysefjord. Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) is a large chair of rock and have a vertical drop of 600m. You start from the Preikestolshytten (contact DNT for information), and use about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to hike it. The Kjeragbolt is a rock between two mountains and you have 1000m down to the sea. Sitting on it, will give you a great stomack feeling. You use about 1 1/2 - 2 hours to hike this too, and you start on 600m. The nearest hut is down in Lysebotn (0m), but if you have a tent you can find a nice place around the road where you start the hike.

Recommendation:

See for your self and jugde. Look very nice ? Think of all the nice pictures you can take, when you're hanging outside the cliff and sitting on the rock. Be aware of: there is no fence ! Summer 1996 I cycled in this area and hiked both the Preikestolen and the Kjeragbolt. It was reeeealy great, I think the Kjeragbolt was the greatest one and it gave my stomack realy something to chew on :-). So watch out for more pictures. Take care and have a nice hike.
