How to combine Trolltunga, Preikestolen and Kjeragbolten
Hike all highlight attractions – stay in Flørli!
Hiking Trolltunga, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and Kjerag (Kjeragbolten): these highlights of southern Norway can be combined with a visit of Flørli.
These main attractions are often combined. This is how.
With your own car:
If you have your own car, start in one end, for example Trolltunga. Remember this is a tough hike and you’ll need to spend two nights in the Odda area or be prepared to make a long day.
After Trolltunga, drive to Songesand and take the ferry to Flørli, bring your car on the ferry. The drive takes at least 3 hours and the last Kolumbus ferry leaves at 14:20 – you need to reserve in advance. Use Flørli as your base for visiting Preikestolen and Kjerag, read how. You’ll spend 2 nights in Flørli, 3 if you also want to hike the Flørli Stairs.
Alternatively coming from Trolltunga and Odda, spend a night in the Preikestolen area (Jørpeland or Forsand for example), hike Preikestolen the day after, then take the afternoon ferry from Forsand to Flørli, bring your car to Flørli. Spend the night in Flørli. Two nights if you also want to hike the Flørli Stairs. Then continue on to Lysebotn bringing your car and do the Kjerag hike.
Without a car:
Public transport in Norway is not frequent – you need to plan this, but then it will work for you.
If you’re coming from Trolltunga and Odda, take the Nor-Way bus to Stavanger (via Aksdal or Haugesund). Spend the night in Stavanger. Then visit Preikestolen the next day. You can buy an all-inclusive ticket from Boreal, GoFjords or Pelles Reiser – they bring you from the city centre to the parking at Preikestolen. If you want to save some crowns, you can hop on the public service Kolumbus busline 100 from Stavanger Byterminal (central bus station) to Jørpeland, then hop on any of the abovementioned commercial providers at a reduced fare.
Every monday, wednesday and friday at 07:35 am there is a direct Kolumbus ferry from Flørli to Stavanger city centre, with arrival in Stavanger at 09:00 am.
