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.
Optimize your adventure and leave the hassle up to us!
Our professional (and local!) nature guides lead unique ‘off the beaten track’ tours that highlight the region’s fjords, mountains, and valleys. 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. We have written a separate article about our guide philosophy.
