Forsand is a village in Rogaland - 3 hours drive from Stavanger, it's near the Kjerag mountain.


Get in[edit]

In summer time (after the 21st of June) it is possible to get there on a ferry with the help of Veteran Fjordcruise AS [1]. That's why before this time you can only drive. If you use GPS devices be aware of getting lost and alway control the way it shows you. It is better to print the road description from internet and insert the road sections step by step.

Get around[edit]



  • Trekking to Kjeragbolten Quite an interesting one - sometimes it is even simply a way vertically up. The way up and down lasts 5-6 hours (or even more if you stay for "drinking", "making pictures" and "having some rest"). In order to get to the Boltn you need to follow red letters "T" and sign post not far from your aim. When there is snow on the mountain it is a bit difficult to find the Boltn. After the signpost you need to go straight and after a slope you need to go to the right.
Most people start the hike to Kjeragbolten from the Oygardsstolen Cafe. There is a parking fee during the busy season.





Stay safe[edit]

You will for sure need trekking shoes in order not to break legs and warm jacket. It is also necessary to take water and some food with you.
