The Hike:
A very short hike not too far out of Stavanger.  It takes only about 20 minutes to climb to the top of the hill to see The Moon Falls.. However, the hike might be a bit difficult for some because some parts are very steep and straight up rocks.  There is a chain to hold on to, so it is doable for sure – but just be careful and take your time if you have difficulty with hiking.

The Drive

The drive from Stavanger to Månafossen is really pretty and just as enjoyable as the hike itself.  It takes about 1 hour from Stavanger.

Great For:

A half-day hike with weather that isn’t the best…
If the weather is ify and you don’t want to commit to a very long hike and drive like to PREIKESTOLEN or Kjeragbolten, Månafossen is the perfect backup plan.  Since the hike is so short, if the weather starts to turn, you’re never too far from the car.
