In our South-West Norway itinerary there were 3 hikes on my bucket list and Kjerag was one of them. I could totally see myself stepping on that boulder and show the world how brave I was. Since it is located relatively close to Preikestolen we planned to do both in 2 days but ended up doing both in the same one. I still don’t know how that happened, since hiking to Kjerag is definitely not something you can just improvise. While doing Preikestolen and Kjerag in the same day shouldn’t be an issue for experienced hikers, I recommend others to take more time. If the weather cooperates, both hikes will be something you will never forget.
Hiking to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) in Norway
I am sure everyone has watched or at least heard of the Mission Impossible film series. Remember one of the scariest moments in the “Fallout” (2018) with Tom Cruise hanging from a cliff? Well, that cliff does exist and it is called Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock. Due to its amazing structure and relatively easy access, hike to Preikestolen is one of Norway’s most famous hikes. It was also the first hike on our West Norway road trip adventure, and it was everything I had hoped it would be. You can find tons of information about this hike online, so I will try to cut thing short and sum up the most important things to know before hiking to Preikestolen.
