Are you ready to hike up to one of the world's most spectacular viewpoints? The Pulpit Rock is a dramatic mountain plateau 604 meters above the Lysefjord. We take you on a fjord cruise on the Lysefjord and further by bus to the starting point of the hike!
The Lysefjord was formed by powerful glaciers during the ice age. Here, the mountain peaks extend high above the fjord on both sides and provide fantastics views during the fjord cruise. The Pulpit Rock is one of the most famous nature attractions in Norway and standing on top of the Pulpit Rock and enjoying the wonderful view and the dizzying height is truly a unique experience!
This tour starts from Stavanger on a quiet fjord cruise with a new electric boat that sails silently in the beautiful fjord landscape on the Lysefjord. You get to see the Pulpit Rock from the fjord where Tom Cruise climbed the steep mountain wall in the film Mission Impossible 6. Afterwards, the cruise continues to the mighty Hengjanefoss waterfall. After an exciting fjord cruise, you get off in Forsand, where a bus will bring you to the Preikestolen Cabin where the hike starts from.
The hike takes approx. 2 hours each way and is a wonderful experience! The trip to Pulpit Rock has a moderate degree of difficulty. The trail goes over bogs, forests, and stone stairs built by Sherpas from Nepal to protect the terrain and facilitate the trip. The path is well marked along the entire road towards Pulpit Rock. The actual walk takes between 3 and 4 hours. You return to Stavanger by bus through the world's longest underwater tunnel.
