Preikestolen Tourist Information is situated by Preikestolen parking, which is the starting point for a hike to Preikestolen. At the tourist information you will find information about hiking, the National Tourist Route Ryfylke, accommodation, attractions and activities in Ryfylke and Stavanger.

Preikestolen
The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), the most famous tourist attraction in Ryfylke, towers an impressive 604 metres over the Lysefjord. In old times, the plateau was called Hyvlatånnå ("planed tooth"). This flat mountain plateau, approximately 600 square metres was most likely formed with the melting frost 10,000 years ago.

HIKING TO PREIKESTOLEN
It is a great experience to be at the top of the plateau. The Pulpit Rock lodge is located near the main road (Rv 13) south of Jørpeland and can be reached by car or, in the summer, by bus from Tau. From here, there is a trail to the Pulpit Rock climbing 350 metres through somewhat uneven terrain. Along the trail, there are picnic areas and excellent bathing spots. Remember proper walking shoes/boots, walking sticks, warm clothing and food.

Season: April - October.
Ascent: 350 m
Time: 4 hour t/r
There is a paying car park, an information booth and sanitary facilities (May-September).
