3-Sjøersløpet is a run with the intention of motivating more people to challenge themselves to finishing a long-distance race. The run is organised every year on the first Saturday in November. This is for many people the end of the running season and therefore a good base for setting goals for exercising all year round. The run goes through familiar areas for most people in the region, and it therefore appeals to the width of exercisers in Northern Jæren.

Guided hike to Flørli 4444 steps

Where: Husabergbakken 29 B, 4032 Stavanger

When: July 3rd – September 30th 2018

Consider spending a day climbing the world’s longest wooden staircase. With its 4444 steps, Flørli is known to be one of the scariest stairs in the world. The climb is long and strenuous, but provides great lookout points where you can stop to catch your breath while enjoying the vista over the Lysefjord down below. This is a two-part hike that does not take you through the same scenery more than once. The descent follows the hundred-year old marked trail that was once used by the “Rallarer”. Rallarer were often underprivileged men that were employed in the 1800s Norway to help build infrastructure. They are remembered to have carried up to 80 kg loads on their backs, and are the ones that built the stairs along with the Flørli Hydroelectric Power Station at their base. The dam at Ternevatnet, which the return trail passes, also stands as a reminder of their mastery.


Guided hike to Kjerag

Where: Husabergbakken 29 B, 4032 Stavanger

When: July 2nd – October 31st 2018

The fjord adventure would be incomplete without a trip to Kjerag bolt. The five-cubic meter glacial deposit is mysteriously suspended between two rocks, with the location being a world of its own. It inspires to humbleness and gratitude for having been allowed the privilege to experience nature in its utmost purity, from the top of the world. Standing on the boulder itself is not for the faint of heart and visitors to Kjerag should be reminded that what this place must offer is more than just an impressive boulder. Chances are you will be in awe of nature’s unmistakable beauty the entire trip, culminating with the breath-taking vistas over the Lysefjord.


Guided hike to Mån waterfall

Where: Husabergbakken 29 B, 4032 Stavanger

When: July 3rd – October 31st 2018

Månafossen is Rogaland county’s biggest waterfall and Norway’s seventh. The hike takes visitors through a forest trail and offers several lookout points over the canyon down below, while the sunlight beams create a spectacle of colors around the crystal clear falling waters of Mån. This is a small piece of paradise that allows one to be inspired and feel connected to nature. Tales of Norwegian history are told by the continuing trail that finally opens into a green clearing leading to an old, but well preserved, mountain farm. Since the road to and from is the only one that used to connect the Mån farm to civilization, this hike will feel like going back in time.


Guided hike to Lifjell

Where: Husabergbakken 29 B, 4032 Stavanger

When: July 3rd – October 31st 2018

In Norway, one does not have to step far from the city to enjoy nature and spectacular fjord landscapes. Lifjell is one such summit close to the heart of civilization. The path takes visitors through green, mossy forest, but it is not long before the terrain changes to expose rocks and typical northern flora of spruce, bushes and shrubs, such as blueberry plants and dwarf juniper, and the common heather (or ling) so loved by Norwegian bees. The top offers incredible views over the city of Stavanger, the northern part of Jæren, the North Sea and the islands in the fjord around Stavanger.
