Preikestolen also known as Prekestolen or Pulpit Rock is a famous Norwegian cliff with an area of nearly 625 square meters, situated at an altitude of 604 m
From the top a breathtaking view stretches over the Lysefjord Fjord and the blue waters of Lysefjorden.
The hilly trail begins at an altitude of 270 meters above sea level and sometimes steep path leads to the peak. The entire route is less than 4 km, but access is from about 2 to 3 hours each way, depending on your experience and fitness level.
Best to go on a trip there in the months from April to October. In winter and early spring, snow and ice are are on the paths, making the route slippery and dangerous.
At the bottom there is the Preikestolen Fjellstue parking.
It is quite an exhausting attraction, however it's definitely worth the effort.
