kjeragOne of the most famous places for hiking in Norway to  is in the Kjerag Plateau. The mountains were created as glaciers melted and rocks were deposited as the glaciers moved. On that trail is one of the most famous spots to stop and take a picture. The Kjeragbolten is a rock that is suspended between two cliffs. This rock is a favorite place for base jumpers and tourists. It was also the scene of a viral video that featured a man standing on it.

The trail is open during the summer months. If you plan on hiking this part of Norway, you need to take weather into consideration to plan the best day for your trip. The trail is closed during the rest of the year.

One thing you do need to plan on is bringing plenty of water and food. You also need to wear the appropriate hiking gear and pack warm clothing. The temperature can vary during the hike, so it is best to be prepared in case weather conditions change during your expedition. You should also check the weather reports before departing to ensure that the weather is cooperating for a hike up the mountain.

The base of the trail begins at Oygardstol. If you are part of a tour group, this is where the hike officially begins. You can also get there by bus from one of the nearby cities. If you do rent a car, you will have to pay for parking at the trail’s head.

It will take about five hours to traverse the entire trail. It may take longer if you decide to stop for photographs along the way. If you haven’t made a hike like this before, it is best to put in some physical training before you start the journey.

The trail overlooks the village of Lsyeboten and goes onto the Kjerag Plateau. The Kjeragbolten rock is at the top of the hike.
