Hiking to Preikestolen (The Pulpit Rock)

The iconic Pulpit Rock rises 1970 feet above the Lysefjord. Take the hike and enjoy the spectacular views.

Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), the Lysefjord

Preikestolen is a mountain formed like a huge pulpit towering over the Lysefjord in Rogaland, Fjord Norway. There is a crack between the plateau of Pulpit Rock and the mountain, and it is said that on the day seven sisters marry seven brothers from the Lysefjord area, the plateau will tear itself away from the mountain and fall into the fjord, creating a huge wave that will destroy all life in the surrounding area. You've been warned. There is a well prepared track from Preikestolen Mountain Lodge to the top of the 604-metre-high mountain plateau. Expect to spend four-five hours hiking from the lodge to the top and back down, and allow an hour or two to spend on the plateau.

Where to stay

We stayed at the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which is situated at the beginning of the hike. The lodge has hotel standards and comes highly recommended. Find other places to stay in Ryfylke.
