HIKING AND WALKS
Hikers come from allover to go up to Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) that is a good 1-1.5 hour walk up to the top where there is a beautiful view over Lyseford.
Kjeragbolten is another hike that is for little more experienced hikers but that is a 2.5 hour walk to the stone so 5 hours walk both ways.
If you want a little shorter trip then we recommend to walk up to Månefossen that is a little challenging but so worth the view.
Rogaland is full of great hiking trails! We recommend to check them out here
