Full description
Hike one of Norway’s most spectacular walking trails just a few hours from Stavanger, and get stunning views from the top of Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) above the Lysefjorden fjord.

Reach the edge of the near-vertical cliff and test your nerves of steel as you stand or sit close to the edge above crystal-clear waters. Enjoy a light snack as you take in the unobstructed views over a fjord formed by glaciers during the last Ice Age.

Reconnect with the wilderness on the 4 to 6-hour trek using well marked and easy to follow paths. Face the challenge of rocks that may become slippery in more demanding areas before you reach the unparalleled views.

The hike was absolutely amazing and the view was spectacular. Our guide (Michael) was knowledgeable, friendly and a very experienced mountaineer; making an already wonderful hike even more fantastic. I would recommend that people consider the hike at least moderate as you do have to go up several steep inclines for extensive periods. Additionally, if you’re doing the hike in the winter please make sure you are prepared with warm clothes (several layers), actual hiking boots, a rain jacket, day pack and spikes. The weather changes quickly and hikers should be ready for varying climates.

Punctuality in the collection, Michael is a great guide, he even spoke to us in Spanish since in English we did not understand everything, he adapts to the group making stops on the route, is pending of all and makes you some very cool photos! The views are incredible , it is worth doing this excursion

The day of the excursion I woke up very sick, like my sister, the weather had been bad and we were very affected. I called those responsible for the tour and they understood the whole situation, we couldn't do the tour. The customer service was excellent and we were able to resolve the situation. I'm very grateful.
