Pulpit Rock Winter & Spring Hike

We invite you to experience a unique Preikestolen hiking adventure! Hike in near-solitude while encountering breathtaking views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord, which are often blanketed in snow this time of year.

Stavanger
8 hours
Moderate
02.JAN - 30.APR

Grab the chance to beat the crowds and enjoy Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) and the Lysefjord during Norway´s pre-season serenity. This early in the year, weather conditions are constantly changing and the trail is often covered with snow and ice. Winter’s ice and snow often last well into springtime. As needed, you’ll adjust the equipment (ice spikes, etc.) you use to match the changes in terrain.

Tour description

Along the way, there will be opportunities to catch your breath, enjoy a warm beverage, and snap photos of the spectacular nature around you. After 2.5-3.5 hours* of trekking, you’ll be rewarded with a panoramic view of some of the most dramatic scenery Fjord-Norway has to offer.

Standing atop the 604-meter-high cliff, the views of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains are nothing short of awe-inspiring. You’ll be one of the very few that have experienced Preikestolen off-season.

After the hike, you will stop by Preikestolen Mountain Lodge to enjoy freshly-baked bread and a well-deserved (and delicious!) bowl of homemade soup (not offered in January).

Have a nice hike to the Pulpit Rock!
