This time of year, at higher altitudes, it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll encounter snow and ice. Your guide has the experience and know-how and will provide you with hiking poles, spikes, and snowshoes. While the sun rises over the mountains, your guide will lead you up to the Kjerag boulder. This portion of the trek is about 4.5 kilometres long and consists of two slopes that are interspersed with a valley. Breathe in the crisp, cool mountain air and experience the magic of hiking in solitude before the beginning of the high-season.
Once you reach the edge of the mountain’s plateau while standing on a 1000-meter-high cliff, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the 42-kilometre-long Lysefjord: some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. At the boulder, hanging a heart-stopping 984 meters above the fjord. you will have time to relax and enjoy your packed lunch. We have dedicated a full day to be able to hike in peace and having enough time to enjoy Kjerag in winter conditions.
After lunch, we will return to Kjerag Basecamp for a well-deserved campsite dinner and another night in the winter wonderland. Experience Norway’s long cold winter while sleeping under the stars! If weather conditions are favourable, you may also have the opportunity to participate in a sunset and/or moonlight hike (optional).
