What we do

The Norwegian wilderness is a world-class playground for true outdoor adventurers. Based in Stavanger, Fjord-Norway, Outdoorlife Norway organizes summer 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 Winter ActivityDay-Hike, Bike Tour, go on a Multi-Day Trekking Adventure, or request a tailored tour with private guide, troughout the year.

Optimize your adventure and leave the hassle up to us!

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. Our professional (and local!) nature guides lead unique ‘off the beaten track’ tours that highlight the region’s fjords, mountains, and valleys.
