Travelogue Norway 2021
Preikestolen and Vikastakken
There are at least three hiking destinations in Norway that are famous especially because you can take spectacular photos at the destination of the hike. Preikestolen, Kjeragbolten and Trollunga. Preikestolen is the easiest hike of the three and, with a total length of 8 kilometres and 350 metres of ascent from the official car park, is most suitable for children and casual hikers. Scenically, I like this hike the best of the three I mentioned.
The hiking trails to the top attractions in Norway are excellently maintained. This is refinanced through hefty parking fees.
Here now pictures of the hike:
With all the breaks and LOTS of photos, we were out for a little under five hours.
I don’t remember if it was that evening or the next morning that I realized we would not be able to make the hike to Kjeragbolten from our accommodation in one day. But the weather was not so good anyway and so we decided for a short or at least less spectacular hike compared to the day before directly from our cottage to the Vikastakken (8 kilometers, 620 meters altitude difference, with breaks just under six hours).
