Kjerag and Nesatind above Lysefjord

The famous Kjerag boulder (Kjeragbolten) sits wedged between two cliff faces with a 1000m vertical drop down to the fjord below - making it popular with base jumpers. Kjerag itself is the plateau on the top with a magnificent view over the impressive Lysefjord. If you are brave (and don't have a trace of vertigo) it is possible to step onto the boulder.
Enjoy vertigo views? Try Pulpit Rock or Skomakarnibbå too!
Accommodation is limited in the mountains, but there are many hotels in Sandnes and Stavanger.

1000m vertical drop - view down Lysefjord from Nesatind

kjeragbolten - the wedged stone that some people stand on This is a difficult 5 hour hike with 3 steep climbs to get there. Once on the plateau the walk becomes easier.
Make sure you take the "diversion" to Nesatind, which has better views and is just as scary as Kjeragbolten, which you get to by clambering down a stream bed.
As an alternative to the long drive back through Sirdal, take the car ferry through Lysefjord to Stavanger in the afternoon. Check times. It is advisable to book in advance.
