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.

  • If you are traveling to Norway, included if you go with children an obligatory visit. It is an excursion that is adapted for tourism, is a route neither long nor lasts... According to fitness can be between 1 and 2 hours and half one way and back the same. Reaching the "goal" views are impressive, the best I've seen in my life. 100% recommend!

  • The trail to 3/4 is not exciting to go, perhaps because a little too built up and way too crowded with tourists of all kinds. But despite this, the show at the top is truly amazing and even a little scary if you're not accustomed to inclines. I mean take it with due time. .. and when you arrive at the top you will enjoy a spectacular view over the Lysefjord. "The picture" (the beautiful), it does more than the Plastron (where everyone looks down) on a second stage, a bit more challenging and risky (so watch out), lasting about 10 minutes. For hiking enthusiasts perhaps the prettiest part of the path.
