From Stavanger to Bergen - one week hiking


15 July '17 12:00 we are landing in Stavanger and on 22 July '17 17:00 we fly back from Bergen.
We have one week for hiking.

The top 3 places we would like to visit are:
- Preikestolen
- Kjerag
- Trolltunga

We will be backpacking, having the tent with us and no car.
I would appreciate if someone could help us in defining nice route to get from Stavanger to Bergen using public transport and our legs.

We are able to hike 20 - 30 km per day. We sleep wherever in the tent.
I thought about taking a bus from Stavanger to Preikestolen. And then, is it possible to hike through lysefjord to Kjerag?
And then from Kjerag what's the best way to go/hike towards Trolltunga? I was thinking to spend few days  on our way in Hardangervidda national Park, but...


Plese help:)

I've looked into this myself for a future visit. I believe you can take a bus from Stavanger to Preikestolvegen (Pulpit Rock Mountain Lodge).

There are ferries to Lysebotn, and you can hike to Kjeragbolten from there, but I'm not sure how you would get from Preikestolen to Lysebotn. Maybe there is a shuttle that would take you from the lodge to Forsand - from there you can catch a ferry to Lysebotn.

Trolltunga is much more difficult to get to and difficult to hike. It would be worth viewing the video here to make sure you are fully prepared for it.
