How about the transport and the sightseeing
We are visitng to Stavanger during the winter and wanted to see Kjeragbolten and the pulpit rock. It is impossible to hike, but all the packages for boat cruises for Kjeragbolten seems to be related to hiking. Is there a way that I can see both Kjeragbolten and pulpit rock in a boat cruise?
I see boat cruise options for pulpit rock, but not sure if Kjeragbolten is included somehow unspecified.
Can you please tell me, how can i get to Oslo from Stavenger?
By bus or train?Or can you guide me to a site to find the exact hours?
Hi, maybe somebody could help me... Cuz I really dont have a clue.
I'm planing to travel these places on Octomber 1-2-3-4.
I will fly to Stavanger early morning and be there at 10:00, Im planing to rent a car so I can easly move to these places.
My 1 day, cuz im landing so early I though that I could visit Preikestolen. And after to stay near in any hotel so I can next day ( day2 ) hike to Kjearag, after hiking the Kjearag, maybe to drive to Trolltunga and stay over there nearby. Day 3, Hike to Trolltunga, and after to check in a hotel. Day 4 drive back to Stavanger and catch the flight.
I know that the sesson is closed, but is there still people doing this hikes on the beginning of Octomber ? Am I realistic on my planing schedule ?? Ocfourse if the weater is bad, we will not hike to Trolltunga, I have read that its 10-11 hours hiking and is really hard. The hiking to Kjearag is 6-8 h, and Prekestolen 4-6 h.
Do you have any tips, something I should consider ? Are the ferries between expensive ?? Have anybody done this ??
Hey there everyone!
I'm currently in Norway and would like to do the Kjerag hike in the next couple of days. I've just seen i've missed the season with tidereiser but was wondering if there is any other way to get to the base? Are there any bus companies anyone knows that do that route? Any info would be great
I'm staying in Stavanger over the weekend 5th and 6th September. Just wondering if anyone knew of any events happening there that weekend as I like to see new things when staying anywhere?
I've tried google and I can't see anything particular happening then, but if you know of any concerts or sport happening I'd like to know.
Thanks very much.
I live in London and would like to do some hiking in Norway next month. My number 1 is the pulpit rock. There is a cheap Ryanair flight that lands in Haugesund but I'm just considering how much it would cost to get to Stavanger. Do you think it would be better to pay for a more expensive flight that lands in Stav, or is there a cheap bus from Haugesund?
Suggestions please :)
I've looked up both flights but advice from someone who has done it would be great

Hello. Our family will be in Stavanger for 3 days this May and my husband who is an avid biker has heard of the famous Lysebotn -Sirdal pass with great roads. We have tried to google motorcycle tours or rentals for this route but have so far found none. Is there any biker here or anyone who can direct us to a rental company for this purpose? Would appreciate any info. Thanks.

I am planning to climb Kjerag on Friday, but as it is not season yet seems like no buses nor boats go from Stavanger to Kjerag. What is the best way to get there? Maybe hitchhiking from Stavanger? Will people pick me up on a Friday 7AM when everyone is going to work?

Hej! My 13-year old daughter and I (53) will be at loose ends in Stavanger while my husband attends a conference. Any suggestions on how to keep a California girl interested and amused? (She is in that rebellious stage unhappy about being taken away from her friends back home) I realize Norge is quite expensive, but thought she might be awed by a trip to the arctic circle, or a fjord cruise etc. Tak.
Is it possible to hike from Lysebotn to the Preikestolen? If so, how many hours/days would this take? Can you just bring a tent and camp or do you need spend the night in huts?
Can you get to Pulpit rock in late January?

I am looking for a 3 or 4 day trekking tour near Stavanger. We will have a tent with us so compaing but also hostels to stay the night would be possible. We would like to walk about 6 to 10 hours a day and we need a transfer to the start point and back to Stavanger on Saturday. If possible we would also like to pass by at Pulpit Rock or we will do it in a separate tour. Would be great to get some proposals for a trip.

I arrive in Stavanger tomorrow night (friday 31st august) and we want to get from Stavanger to Lysebotn on saturday or sunday. we don't have a car so need ferries or buses or trains
the only thing we've found so far is a bus that arrives in lauvvik 4 minutes before the ferry leaves so that's no good.
is there another ferry we can get or a bus that runs at this time in the year?
Many people suggested it's very difficult to do Pulpit rock on a tight schedule (8:00-17:00) with a 10 year old, so we won't go :(
We are interested in seeing as much scenery and fjords as possible and doing outdoor activities. Stavanger is our third cruise stop after visiting Flam and Bergen. What do you recommend doing in Stavanger? Are there impressive fjords to see or we should stroll in the city? Or hiking maybe?

Hi!!I'm planning to go to Stavanger and visit Preikestolen, Kjerag and its surroundings between the 2nd and the 5th of May. I've read in some websites that it's not possible to go to Kjerag until the last days of May, but in others they say it's possible, so I would be very grateful if you could give me your advice.
Thank you very much in advance!!
We are coming to Stavanger for Easter weekend and want to go to Pulpit Rock. I found this website where I can book tickets in advance, should I do it?
We are coming to Stavanger for Easter weekend (arriving by plain on Friday 06.04.12) and are wondering if we can find a place to change money as its almost always cheaper to change in the country then from the outside.
Sure we will have some local currency for a bus ride.
Can you, please, help me with a recommendation for a long term parking (about 9-10 days).
The one at Sola airport is much too expensive :)
