Norwegian nature constitutes a paradise for outdoor experiences. It is our personal goal to get more people outdoors and closer to nature. We combine highlights with off the beaten track adventures.

Based in Stavanger, Fjord-Norway, Outdoorlife Norway organizes summer hikes and winter activities in and around the Lysefjord. Besides day trips to the highlights of the Lysefjord – Preikestolen, Kjerag and Flørli – we also provide multi-day tours. Guests can join a Day-Hike, go on a Multi-Day Trekking Adventure, or request a tailored tour with private guide. We believe that guiding small groups and a close interaction between the triangle of guest – nature – guide are important to create unique nature experiences that will create memories for life.

Winter hikes

The thick layers of snow in Stavanger’s mountainous hinterlands usually remain far into spring. The busy summer season is months away and the hiking trails are covered in ice and snow. How would you enjoy hiking through a winter wonderland on snowshoes…? …or spending the night in a cozy snow cave?

Ever hiked along a fjord? Visit the highlights of the Lysefjord – Preikestolen, Kjerag and Flørli. Hike off the beaten track. Enjoy views only few have experienced. Carved out and shaped by glaciers during the ice ages, the mighty Lysefjord has fascinated locals and travelers for centuries.

The Lysefjord was once home to wanderer and local legend Pilt-Ola (1779-1858). Pilt-Ola walked all the way to Lapland to buy reindeer and even tried to walk from Norway to America. Myths tell that Pilt Ola hiked around the 42 km long Lysefjord in just one day. Hike in Pilt-Ola’s footsteps and discover the Lysefjord at your own pace. Outdoorlife Norway offers an assortment of multi-day trekking tours with varying lengths and levels of difficulty. Welcome to the Lysefjord!
