The trip from Preikestolen Fjellstue to Preikestolen is one of the country's most enigmatic mountain hikes - about 300,000 people take the trip out on the dizzying mountain plateau every year. An absolutely fantastic trip that must be experienced!
Before you leave the parking area, make sure you fill up all you need for a long day outdoors. There is a public toilet, a kiosk (in season) and other facilities at the main parking. Once you set off, there is nothing but nature and your fellow hikers.
During winter, the trail is covered with snow and ice and weather conditions may be challenging. However, with the right equipment, a winter experience to Preikesolen may be rewarding. Crampoons are highly recommended during winter, it may be rented at the mountain lodge. The weather is always much more severe at the top than at the parking, so prepare with wool underwear and wind- and waterproof outer layers, and sturdy boots. Clothes and boots are also for rent at the lodge. Beware of early nightfall, and make sure that you return in time to reach the parking well ahead of the darkness.
