Well...it was a bit tough..I went out of the season (November) so no chain available and a lot of ice (-3 Celsius), which made me detour from the path to walk on the grass since I had no crampons. Detouring can be dangerous because there...More

Kjerag was AMAZING! The view was beautiful and although it was a tough hike, very worth it once we took all of the pictures! I would definitely do it again if I go back to Norway. It is a must see attraction and absolutely fantastic.

Real tough hike up almost sheer cliff holding onto chains in parts. Great fun though and spectacular views of the Fjord and Lysebotn from above. The bolten is insane we didn't go on as was very wet during our visit.

This hike is hard to a non-experienced hiker like me - steep boulders, ropes you need to pull yourself up - it was also very cold (4 degrees) with rain showers at times. Still - as long as you come prepared and have the right...More

I had no idea how scary it was to climb up and down 4 mountains in order to see that famous rock. If I'd known beforehand, I wouldn't go up there. When I finally go there, after 2.5 hours walking on rough mountain roads, I...More

The first couple of km are really hard. Bare slippery rock face and no made pathways at all. There are chains to help pull yourself up. It gets easier after that, and coming down is not so bad because you can use the chains to...More
