About 10,000 years ago, the last ice age ended and massive glaciers scraped their way from the mountain tops down toward sea level. In the process, Norway’s rugged landscapes, most notably its fjords, were formed. At some point, Kjerag’s boulder was wedged into a mountain crevasse. Ever since, the ‘Majesty of the Lysefjord’ has been suspended a heart-stopping 984 meters over the fjord.
Join Outdoorlife Norway on our most demanding winter trekking tour: starting at the base of the fjord, trek 25 kilometers on snowshoes and/or spikes to the top of Kjerag and back in just over 11 hours (total ascent – 1,300 meters). Enjoy the silence of Norway’s vast wilderness while ascending 1,300 meters into the mountains in near-solitude. Encounter breathtaking views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains, breathe in Norway’s pristine mountain air, and experience the exhilaration of standing on Kjerag’s cliff side, almost a kilometer above the Lysefjord below. Before and after the expedition, spend the night in the comfort of a cozy fjord lodge.
This demanding, 25-kilometer expedition is perfect for people looking for the ultimate winter trekking challenge.
