Guided classic hike to Preikestolen with Explore Lysefjorden (premium hike)


Explore Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), one of the most iconic rock formations in Ryfylke and Norway, with a guide from Explore Lysefjorden. The highlight is the panoramic view above the majestic Lysefjord.

The drive from Stavanger to the start of the trail, takes about 40 minutes. From Jørpeland it takes 10 minutes by car.

Restrooms are available at the parkering area.

If conditions allow it, you get access to alternate routes with less crowds and exclusive photo opportunities while experiencing some of the best scenery Ryfylke and Fjord Norway have to offer.

The highlight is the spectacular view from the sheer cliff face Preikestolen, towering 604 meters above the majestic Lysefjord. The sheer cliff face overlooks the fjord, and the panoramic view makes for a fantastic reward after all the work it took to get there.

The pace allows for time to adjust clothes and equipment, time to rest and enjoy snacks, and for taking pictures, both along the way and at the top.

Get the most out of your trip – hike with a guide.
