Join a Fjord Retreat

Hi! Are you interested in a Fjord Retreat in Flørli, Norway? To work online, be creative, study things or just chill out in an inspirational setting? This is possible in Flørli from december to the end of april!

Flørli is a tiny village without road access on the shores of the Lysefjord. Every monday, wednesday and friday at 13:00 there is a fast ferry to Flørli leaving directly from the city centre of Stavanger. It takes you past numerous islands and sounds, you’ll drop by a couple of villages and then enter the spectacular fjord. The ferry goes twice daily, except for saturdays and also leaves from Lauvvik and Forsand – see getting here.

Flørli in summer is a bustling tourist attraction. Visitors from all over the world come here to experience the unique atmosphere of the town and hike the 4444 steps to the top of the mountain – the world’s longest wooden stairway. Flørli is strategically located between the Kjerag and Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), two of the main tourist attractions of Fjord Norway, which also adds to its popularity.

The Fjord Retreat offer is valid in our low season and it is important to realise that Kjerag and the top of the Flørli Stairs may not be accessible due to snow. Instead, there are other rewarding activities for adventurers to do! We can help you plan them.

So we invite you to join a Fjord Retreat: because Flørli is a magical place, far away from it all and with the rooms and facilities you need to bring your projects along! Read more.


To see the Fjord Retreat alternatives, select at least 2 nights in the booking calendar.

In the Lysefjord, all seasons here have their unique charm – the beautiful fall colours, snow on the mountains and the fresh green of spring all paint the fjord in their hues. You’ll have to bear in mind however, that mobility is impaired in winter when the top of the stairs and Kjerag generally have a lot of snow and are not safe to visit. The village itself is often snow-free.

To enjoy it here, you have to be active and somewhat adventurous: you’ll have to walk steep up the mountain or get onto the fjord. Come make the best of it yourself and with your fellow Retreaters! Click on the left side tabs for trip suggestions 🙂

From november to the middle of may, the higher parts of the stairs are usually closed with snow. But you can still do “the small round” to step 800 or hike to the snow and back down – great fitness! A worthwhile alternative is to do the new spectacular hikes Flørlineset Opp or Flørli Cliffhike. Read more about hiking in Flørli. The Lysefjord is also popular for Trail Running! Read more about Trail Running.

If you like, you can rent snowshoes and back country skies to discover the Frafjordheiane highlands just above Flørli.

Equipment rental

We rent out snowshoes and backcountry skies if you’re in for a winter adventure in the Frafjordheiane Landscape Reserve.

  • Inook Snowshoes: 350kr/week.
  • Fisher BC 99 backcountry set: 600kr/week.
  • Other expedition gear available: winter tent 3-pers, Bergans Rondane sleeping bags, Fjellpulken BC sled and more.
 

If you’d like to go fishing, we rent out simple tackles. There’s plenty fish in the fjord – pollacks, cod, ling, cusk, halibut. There’s also a rowing boat that you can use for free to get out on the fjord. When you want to venture further, we rent out canoes and kayaks in good weather conditions.

The fjord near Flørli is jaw-dropping. Glide silently underneath the towering cliffs, look deep into the crystal clear waters and pay attention to the seals, ducks and other wildlife around you. There are some lovely, idyllic pastures and hamlets that you can choose as a goal for a picknick! Read more about kayak rental.

The Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock is often accessible also in winter. The Kjerag and Kjeragbolten are not so. When you come in winter, we do not recommend either of these trips – also because it will be difficult to walk fast enough to catch the afternoon ferry back to Flørli. In summer and early fall, this is how to visit Preikestolen and Kjerag.

Pets are alright, but not in shared houses – so only if you book an entire apartment for yourself. You should bring your own bed linen or rent from us. Unless otherwise agreed, you are expected to leave the house tidied and cleaned upon departure. Outside the summer-season, the café and kiosk are closed. We suggest you buy food before coming to Flørli. The nearest real shop open on weekdays is in Forsand – the ferry goes there and back every day.

We recommend you to look at the Kolumbus ferry schedule before booking a stay with us.
