4.8/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web
Hike to Pulpit Rock for expansive views of Lysefjord from atop this 10,000-year-old natural rock formation. The relatively mild 4 km (2.5 mi) climb can last one to three hours depending on your fitness and hiking experience, and will take you 604 m (1,981 ft) above sea level. Bring your camera to capture some of the great views. Be sure to check the weather forecast in advance, as rain or fog could obscure the sea. Keep in mind that it is not recommended to hike this trail when there is still snow on the ground.

  • No doubt, impressive and absolutely recommendable experience for all ages. Now in October and may has been restricted to two ferry transport from Stavanger in the morning at 8:00 and 8:40 (the Tourist Office opens at 9:00) with bus to Prekistolhytta from where you start the trail. The problem is in the round, since it gets dark early and ferries to return are scarce. An alternative that we was to rent a car in Bergen and go to Lauvvik where you catch a ferry (cheaper than the Stavanger) and then continue to Prekistolhytta. This option is ideal since these ferries are every half hour until the night that enables one to worry about something else spin. The path is well signposted and well the last part may cause vertigo is an activity that can be done with children (always subject) in approximately 2 hours. We took 1 hour and a half at good pace. Is advisable suitable footwear, clothing coat/waterproof and plenty of water with some food. The route is simple and very nice. An unforgettable experience that is worth.

  • Vertigo, excitement, Adrenaline and although it seems contradictory, full of peace and optimism. The negative, overcrowding and the recklessness of some to achieve the best picture.
