Lysefjord Cruise & Hike to Flørli

The Lysefjord is formed by powerful glaciers during the ice age with mountains that stretch 1000 masl on both sides of the fjord. In the middle of the Lysefjord you find the power community Flørli, which was established 100 years ago. Today, Flørli is an idyllic holiday resort with beautiful nature and unique hiking experiences such as this hike up the Flørli stairs with its 4444 steps!

Tour description

The trip starts from Stavanger with a fantastic fjord cruise on the Lysefjord. On the way, you will pass the mighty Pulpit Rock and several beautiful waterfalls before you arrive at the roadless village of Flørli. In 1916, the development of the power plant began, which provided electricity to Stavanger. The power station, pipeline, and stairs are well preserved and provide a unique insight into the history of Norwegian industry. Today, Flørli4444 offers accommodation, tasty local food, and art exhibitions in the historic buildings in Flørli.

You pick up your packed lunch and hiking map at Flørli Café, and then you a ready for the stairs! The trail starts from the west side of the dam and the first 2 km you follow Flørli staircase to the top of the mountain, 750 masl. At the top, you will be rewarded with a great view of the Lysefjord and toward the Preikestolen massive.

On your way back, you follow a 100-year-old path from the top and through the wild forest down to Flørli where the fjord cruise boat will bring you back to Stavanger again.

The hike up the Flørli stairs and back again takes about 3.5-4 hours in total (round trip).
