My husband and I visited Pulpit Rock when I was 7 months pregnant. I didn't do much research (which is very unusual for me), and we just sort of decided to do the hike last minute. I was a bit surprised...it was a steep walk...More

Majestic views of Lysefjord. Hard to paint the views in words. It’s just stunning. Took me about 4 hours to do a round trip starting from the car park at the base. Could be shorter in dry season. Bring more energy bars. Wear proper outdoor...More

Nice walk, with delicate slopes. It took 3.5 hours to go back and forth, considering eating, selfing and resting as well. I saw several families with kids, meaning that it is really an easy walk. I would just recommend to wear waterproof clothes with uncertain...More

What a wonderful experience. A must do for certain. We took the first ferry from Stavanger (with rental car) at 6.30am. Missed a lot of the crowds going up - good idea if you are quite fit as you can get into a groove and...More

The Preikestolen was probably the best thing I saw during my holiday in Norway. We started the ascent around 5pm which meant that most of the crowds were descending. Since we went in May, the days were long and so it was still bright when...More

We did the mandatory trip to Preikestolen in mid-July 2018. We got there by car, a short one-hour drive. From Stavanger centre go south to Kristiansand. Then no 13 to Høle where you need to catch a ferry which will get you over to Oanes....More

For sure one of the top 10 sights to see while in Norway which I truly recommend. The hike itself is full of wonderful views and it is not such a big effort if you follow the path. If heaven is a place on Earth,...More

We spent a long weekend in Stavanger to do this hike. It was very busy and there are lack of buses from the ferry terminal to the start of the hike. One particular female driver was really rude. I think they should provide buses with...More
