What to expect

Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock, has been named one of the world’s most scenic viewpoints, welcoming more visitors than any other trekking-destination in Norway. But if you prefer avoiding other tourists then you will love this hiking experience with a guide which gives you access to hidden routes, enabling you to explore one of the world’s most iconic natural landmarks away from the crowd.

Your adventure will start with an early-morning pick-up and you will be transported to the base of the hiking trail. After a short briefing, you will embark on your journey to Preikestolen. Your guide will lead you up the trail through shifting terrain. You will pass lakes, forests and bogs, and will stop along the way at numerous vantage points, all of which offer great views of the surrounding mountains. You will also be given ample opportunities to catch your breath and snap photos of the spectacular nature around you.

After 2 to 3 hours of hiking you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer. From atop the 604-meter-high cliff, you’ll enjoy breathtaking views of Lysefjord and its surrounding mountains while your guide serves you a warm drink and snack, allowing you time to enjoy a well-deserved break at the cliff’s edge. You’ll then be lead up to a unique viewpoint that overlooks both Preikestolen and the Lysefjord. From there, the views of the Lysefjord and its surrounding mountains are nothing short of awe-inspiring.

If conditions permit, your guide will follow an alternate route on the way back down to Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which will take about 2 to 2.5 hours. This alternative trail avoids the crowds that typically ascend the mountain during the early afternoon as the lodge is not found on any maps, offering you a more secluded experience. At the lodge, you’ll enjoy freshly-baked bread and a well-deserved bowl of homemade soup, before you are driven back to Stavanger.
