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


Join Explore Lysefjorden on a unique Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) adventure. The guided hike starts at twilight and you arrive the iconic rock formation in time to catch the sun rising over the famous Lysefjord in Ryfylke.

Preikestolen is the perfect scene for a majestic morning high in the mountains. The highlight is the spectacular view from the sheer cliff face, towering 604 meters above the Lysefjord. Being present to witness the silent at dawn is another experience unlike any other. It is a fantastic reward after all the work it took to get there.
