Kjerag, Forsand Municipality

#2 of 9 in Things to do in 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.

  • The stone itself was a huge disappointment. A large line of the stone is being wied out, everybody wants to get up to shoot a photo. Mass is in the whole neighborhood unfortunately the nature has been completely pressed. However, the road leading to it is fantastic and the end of the road is a fjord and wonderful. Approx. two, two and a half hours may be the ascent.

  • Today we made the hike to The Kjerag and I have to say it was the most challenging hike! Not the length of the track - it's only 5km- but the species. There are a total of three increases which should not really be underestimated. They are ascents on smooth, large stones. Hiking poles are rather hindering here and I recommend this hike only with hiking boots. We were unlucky that it rained on the way, so the stones were very slippery. However, the goal is all the more worthwhile! After you have set up for a photo at the stone, I recommend to make a slingshot directly to the left on the way back. This view is simply priceless!!!!
