Pulpit Rock, Forsand Municipality
(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.

  • You have to be willing to walk at least an hour and a half rise. If not is very in shape can be made but taking it in stride and throwing more time. The views from the top are more than impressive. I have a little bit of vertigo and however not bothered me. At first I thought that it could not look me. It is important to do this on a day with good weather, but not worth it.

  • Get started early! Wear good shoes and clothes. Be prepared for that many tourists can be there, and you at times must go in line. Beautiful views in several places and of course at the very tip. Head a little higher to take pictures down-it's getting great pictures. If there is snow on the peaks is the great photos!

  • Climb the pulpit is not certainly challenging, but it's a nice walk to do with proper clothing and calmly, I saw people running jumping up and down the steps and boulders to prove I don't know what to do not know who ... you risk only to get hurt and to hurt all people (many) that will go up at the same time as you! I witnessed a shocking scene ... a family man who wanted to show off his athleticism and that did not fall into the precipice, managing and maintaining the balance just by a hair!
