Day 2: Stavanger - Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock Hike
Today is a full day 10+ hr guided tour to Preikestolen, also known as Pulpit Rock. Meet at hotel Reception at 09:50hrs then transfer to Refsvatn Lake, where you begin your adventure canoeing across the lake. Then time to start hiking! For around 70% of the hike, you’ll follow trails, some of which are rarely used, and once above the tree-line, the trail completely disappears! But don't worry as you are accompanied by an experienced local guide. The remaining 30% of the hike is off-trail and some scrambling is inevitable.  After about 3.5 - 4 hours, you'll reach a viewpoint that will truly astonish you! Time to enjoy a well-deserved break atop the impressive plateau that towers 604 metres above sea level. Here, you’ll see the 1000 metre high mountain walls surrounding Lysefjord from a new perspective. Then begin the long descent back down, eventually joining the main trail down, to reach your hotel for the night, which is located next to the lake.  Your hike today includes hotel pick up, services of a professional guide, canoe equipment, hiking poles, hot beverages & a snack. Overnight at Preikestolen Lodge including dinner.

This afternoon you might like to join an optional 2 hr RIB Fjord Safari on the historical Hardangerfjord, a fjord filled with living cultural heritage, surrounded by massive mountains clad in glacier ice. Along the route, you`ll see different attractions and wildlife, and your guide will tell fascinating natural and cultural stories from the area. There is always a chance of seeing a porpoise or a soaring eagle. There are regular departures daily and don't forget in summer it is daylight until very late. Includes use of insulated suit, goggles, warm hats and mittens.

The hike starts in Skjeggedal, and you'll follow the path by foot to Mågelitopp. From Mågelitopp you'll have a stunning view of the Folgefonna national park, before the trip continues towards Tyssebotn. Here you'll find giant marmites, deep holes in the mountain made by sand and stone rotating in the now dry Tyssestrengene waterfall, which was the world's fifth tallest waterfall before the power station was built. Reaching Trolltunga, enjoy the stunning view of Ringedal Lake and the Folgefonna glacier. Plus, standing on the edge should add some butterflies to your tummy!  Includes the services of professional guide carrying navigation, safety and first-aid equipment, climbing harness, helmet, and a surprise snack.
