Pulpit Rock Cruise & Hike

The fjords of Norway are declared to be the finest unspoiled travel destinations in the world. The Lysefjord and the Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) may be the most impressive of them all. This is the ideal tour for travellers seeking a true Nordic adventure.

Departing Stavanger with your learned guide, you will board a trusty vessel to Lysefjord, taking you to Vagabond's Cave and close enough to Hengjane Falls to feel the spray. Following these sightings, you'll see Pulpit Rock, a natural rock formation consisting of a steep cliff which rises 604 metres above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, with an almost flat top of approximately 25 by 25 metres.

On the way back, you'll disembark at Oanes and be transported by bus to Preikestolhytta, where the non-guided hike to the Pulpit Rock begins. The hike takes approximately 2 hours each way. At the top, experience the magnificence, calmness, and magic of the Pulpit Rock. Following the hike, you will take the bus to Tauto to catch a ferry back to Stavanger.

You will want to book this tour for a truly rewarding and up close visit to one of Norway's most famous and awesome attractions!
