Kjeragbolten Kjerag Norway

Kjeragbolten hangs 1,000 meters over Lysefjorden.

At 1,084 metres high, Kjerag dwarfs the other peaks along Lysefjorden. It used to be enough to admire Kerag from the fjord, but now it is increasingly popular to walk up the path to Kjeragbolten and the Kerag plateau. Most people are happy to enjoy the views from the plateau, but for many the climax of the trip is to be photographed standing on Kjeragbolten, a rock wedged solidly in a deep crevice - a natural creation dating back to the ice age when the area was covered by glaciers. Kjeragbolten and the surrounding area has also become popular with climbers and base jumpers.
