Kjerag, 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.

Välordnat vandringsalternativ, c:a 10_km. Brant på vissa ställen men ingen klättring. Toppen vid klart väder. Bör kombineras med båttur på Lysefjorden och vandring till Prejkestolen. more »A well-arranged hiking option, around 10_km. Steep in some places but no climbing. Great location. Should be combined with boat trip on Lysefjorden and hike to Prejkestolen.
Amazing hike in incredible nature! But make sure to plan enough time, correct footwear etc. It's not a hike for everyone.
Not your average hike that we are used to in Australia. It’s tough but not to tough. Be prepared to be using chains to pull yourself up boulders and if your short like me even getting on your hands & knees to climb up in some places. View is amazing and the boulder is everything you’d expect it to be. Don’t bother if your scared of heights. I love Norway its just beautiful
