GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT THE HIKE
DISTANCE: 4.0 km (each way)
DURATION: 2 to 3 hours (each way)
LEVEL: Easy to moderate
TRAIL START/FINISH: Out-and-back from Preikestolen Lodge.
LOWEST/HIGHEST POINT: 270 m (890 ft.)/604 m (1,982 ft.) above sea level
TRAIL CONDITIONS: The trail is well marked and easy to follow, but depending on weather, the rocks may become slippery in some of the more demanding areas. Some hiking experience is desirable, but not mandatory.
GEAR AND SNACKS: Hikers should be prepared with clothes and shoes accordingly to weather forecast. Hiking boots are strongly encouraged, or approach shoes, at the very least. Other suggestions include warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.
Bring some water with you to keep hydrated, preferably in a container we can refill on the trail. Norwegian mountains are full of crystal clear, clean and very tasty water sources. Lunch will not be provided, but we suggest that you bring your own lunch. Last but not least, each hiker is responsible for carrying his/her own gear, so a suitable backpack is recommended.
TRIP COST: Standard package NOK 1200,-. The price of this trip includes transportation and covers the guide's expenses. We have the possibility to accommodate groups larger than 8 hikers. Please contact us for further details.
PROPOSED STANDARD SCHEDULE FOR PULPIT ROCK
We pick you up at your location you chose when booking. Note that drop-off location, upon return, will be the same as pickup location.
Estimated pickup would be 01:00AM from your accommodation. Be ready 5 minutes before estimated pick up in front of main entrance.
We first head to the Stavanger ferry station or Lauvvik ferry station, and take the ferry across the fjord. From the other side is a short drive to Preikestolen Lodge, our starting point for the hike. The hike up will take us between 2 and 3 hours. Once at Pulpit Rock we will spend some time enjoying the sunrise, the beautiful nature and most likely taking photos. We will also enjoy our packed lunch, beverages and some snacks here. The hike back will likely also take 2 to 3 hours, and expect to arrive in Stavanger around 08:00-10:00 AM.
