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.

Pulpit Rock Reviews
Fantastic hike to Preikestolen. Lovely early morning ferry ride and then a quick bus ride to the start of the hike. Beautiful scenery but do go appropriately dressed for hiking!! more »
The hike isn't so hard, there were people even running. The view is amazing. During weekend there are a lot of people. Definitely worth to go there. more »
Amazing view, I went during Last week of March and the weather was cloudy. Its safe to trek even if there is a slight rain. My best trip so far!
Beautiful hike. But go early in the morning before the big crowd arrives. We went just after dawn and had a mystical and peaceful way up.
