Rising 1,084 metres above the Lysefjord, Kjerag is the tallest peak of them all. This massive mountain has for ages been admired from the fjord, however during the last few years, it has become increasingly more popular to hike up to the actual mountain plateau.
Most people is satisfied with taking in the mesmerising views from the top of the mountain, however for some hikers the highlight seems to be taking one’s photo on the Kjerag boulder, this round chunk of a rock wedged into the crack of the mountain. Kjerag has also become a popular goal for mountain climbers and base jumpers.
The hike takes around 5-6 hours return trip and is around 10 kilometres long. The hike starts from the parking (fee) at Øygardstøl south of the Lysefjord by Lysevegen above Lysebotn. Located here is a service facility with toilets and tourist information. The demanding trail will take you up and down hilly mountaintops, and the difference of altitude is 570 metres.
