Pulpit Rock, Forsand Municipality

(4.8/5 based on 1,700+ 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.

  • The fastest way to Preikestolen is by ferry from Stavanger, Norway. The ferry, Fiskepiren, station is in the Centre of the city and is easily accessible from most of the hotels, round trip which includes ferry and truck up to the beginning of the ascent towards the pulpit rock costs 300 NOK and can buy some nice young people outside the ferry station, well review the schedules since Sunday there are fewer times than usual. The climb up the rock can be done by guys and big, that Yes, I recommend completely wear footwear appropriate since although the road is not so dangerous during the ascent it can rain and have to climb some rocks where falls a waterfall, is better to prevent than lament, wear clothes suitable for the ascent, sportswear, jacket and a raincoat are very useful , backpack to carry hands free, also carry food and water since a small shop there is where trucks arrive, but from then on there is only nature. The ascent takes approximately 2 hours, well take your time to return to the truck that will take them back to the ferry. I highly recommend this experience, visiting the fjords is a must on any trip to Norway!

  • It is worth. A route of about 2 hours. Most without difficulty. The views "of death". Visit indispensable if you are in the area.
