Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock)
Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) Review
A huge cube with a vertical drop of 2,000 feet, the Pulpit Rock is not a good destination if you suffer from vertigo—it has a heart-stopping view. The clifflike rock sits on the banks of the finger-shape Lysefjord. You can join a boat tour from Stavanger to see the rock from below, or you can hike two hours to the top on a marked trail. The track goes from Preikestolhytta, where there is a big parking lot.
