    • Visiting Stavanger during the winter

      by SunnyL19 Online Now Nov 22, 2015 at 1:40 PM

      We are visitng to Stavanger during the winter and wanted to see Kjeragbolten and the pulpit rock. It is impossible to hike, but all the packages for boat cruises for Kjeragbolten seems to be related to hiking. Is there a way that I can see both Kjeragbolten and pulpit rock in a boat cruise?
      I see boat cruise options for pulpit rock, but not sure if Kjeragbolten is included somehow unspecified.

    • Stavanger - Preikestolen-Kjearag - Trolltunga

      by saracdem Online Now Sep 17, 2015 at 3:15 AM

      Hi, maybe somebody could help me... Cuz I really dont have a clue.

      I'm planing to travel these places on Octomber 1-2-3-4.
      I will fly to Stavanger early morning and be there at 10:00, Im planing to rent a car so I can easly move to these places.
      My 1 day, cuz im landing so early I though that I could visit Preikestolen. And after to stay near in any hotel so I can next day ( day2 ) hike to Kjearag, after hiking the Kjearag, maybe to drive to Trolltunga and stay over there nearby. Day 3, Hike to Trolltunga, and after to check in a hotel. Day 4 drive back to Stavanger and catch the flight.

      I know that the sesson is closed, but is there still people doing this hikes on the beginning of Octomber ? Am I realistic on my planing schedule ?? Ocfourse if the weater is bad, we will not hike to Trolltunga, I have read that its 10-11 hours hiking and is really hard. The hiking to Kjearag is 6-8 h, and Prekestolen 4-6 h.

      Do you have any tips, something I should consider ? Are the ferries between expensive ?? Have anybody done this ??

      Thanks very much.

      Pulpit Rock

      by AllieK Online Now Jul 9, 2015 at 10:09 AM

      I live in London and would like to do some hiking in Norway next month. My number 1 is the pulpit rock. There is a cheap Ryanair flight that lands in Haugesund but I'm just considering how much it would cost to get to Stavanger. Do you think it would be better to pay for a more expensive flight that lands in Stav, or is there a cheap bus from Haugesund?

      Suggestions please :)
      I've looked up both flights but advice from someone who has done it would be great

      the only thing we've found so far is a bus that arrives in lauvvik 4 minutes before the ferry leaves so that's no good.
      is there another ferry we can get or a bus that runs at this time in the year?

      Many people suggested it's very difficult to do Pulpit rock on a tight schedule (8:00-17:00) with a 10 year old, so we won't go :(
      We are interested in seeing as much scenery and fjords as possible and doing outdoor activities. Stavanger is our third cruise stop after visiting Flam and Bergen. What do you recommend doing in Stavanger? Are there impressive fjords to see or we should stroll in the city? Or hiking maybe?
