All about the trip
Your guide will meet you outside the Stavanger tourist information at 07:30 AM. We will walk (15 minutes) to the pier, where we will take a ferry to Tau.
When arriving in Tau, we will drive to the harbor of Jørpeland city (20 min), which will be our starting point.
This trip starts 20 meters above sea level, and we will have fun on this mini-expedition hike to the famous Preikestolen at 604 meters above the fjord.
We start off easy in the Jørpeland harbor. The adventure begins immediately with a visit to an old hydro-power plant, and if we are lucky we even might see some salmon in the river.
From the river, we enter the woods. Along the track, you'll be met with colorful scenery, and it's quite possible that we'll even see some deer.
The rest of the route runs through forest landscapes, on a narrow stone laid tracks. You will be jumping over rivers, keeping your balance while jumping from stone to stone.
After this mini-expedition to the Pulpit Rock, you deserve a good meal! We will take you to The Rose garden in Jørpeland city. We recommend you to order a nice hot soup or other tasty meal.
After the dinner, we take the Tau ferry back to Stavanger and plan to be back at approximately 7 PM.What Wikipedia Says
