Pulpit Rock

View Photos

Visit this sheer cliff with a flat top that resembles a preacher’s pulpit.

Rising an impressive 604 meters (1982 ft) above the Lysefjord, Preikestolen or Pulpit Rock, is a sheer cliff with a flat top that resembles a preacher’s pulpit. This natural attraction is one of the most visited highlights in Norway, with over 130,000 visitors a year making the hike to the top.

Walking up to Preikestolen takes approximately 2 hours on a steep 3.8 km (2.4 mile) trail with an ascent of about 334 metres (1096 ft). The best season to hike the trail is April to October, and it is not recommended in winter or spring since snow and ice can make the track quite slippery.  As this natural landmark is free of safety railings, hikers are urged to use caution around the cliff edges.

Many cruise tours and passenger ferries also pass beneath the Pulpit Rock year-round.
