RIB & HIKE
Join us on a day-trip to Flørli, which boasts the world’s longest wooden staircase! Travel at high-speed (35 knots) on a RIB from the quay in Stavanger, through the amazing Lysefjord, and on to the former power plant village of Flørli. Challenge yourself to hike up the long climb of 4 444 steps to the top of the mountainside and take in the spectacular fjord views.
Good to know
Flørli, which has been inhabited on and off since at least the seventeenth century, is beautifully located amidst 1000-meter-high mountains along the southern shore of the Lysefjord. In 1916, construction began on a hydro-electric power plant, which, from 1918 until 1950, supplied electricity to the city of Stavanger. At its peak (1917), 142 people were employed at the plant; quite an impressive number considering that only 13 permanent residences were ever built near the site.
This is a demanding 3-hour, 3.2 km (round-trip) climb/hike with a total ascent of just over 750 meters.

We take of all the gear and start moving towards the stairs. There is a café at Flørli, so you can get more food/water if you need. There is also toilets here. The captain will explain the trail for you and tell a little about the place.
5) The Stairs
The hike itself is not more than 1,6 kilometres, but it is a 750 meters incline to the top. Starting slow is key to not get exhausted right away. The first part is often the toughest!

You can chose to take the lunch break half way up, or on the top. The view is absolutly amazing!

On the way down you do not walk in the stairs. You hike over the mountain and follow a trail down to Flørli. On your way down you will cross a suspension bridge and walk through an exotic forrest.
