We hiked Pulpit Rock on a private guided tour in October. Harold from Pulpit Rock Tours met us at the base where the bus dropped off, checked our hiking gear, and told us what to expect during our hike. I had planned to hike in...More
This is one of the greatest hikes I even had. Uniquely Norway! Trekking from the carpark needs less than 2 hours. I would say the difficulty is intermediate with some steep slopes. Do visit this attraction while it still exist as it would be disappear...More
Managed to find our way to the hike’s starting point ourselves by taking the public ferry to Tau from Stavanger, the public bus to Jorpland & then taxi the rest of the way. (No public buses from tau to preikstolen mountain lodge in winter). Foolishly...More
My husband and I hiked up to Pulpit Rock as part of our honeymoon cruise on Serenade of the Seas. We were a bit nervous going into it because neither one of us are expert hikers and this was probably the most difficult hike we've...More
We did the trek in less than two hours, the path is very beautiful. Its an ideal trek for families with kids.. breathtaking when you reach the top. It might be a difficult to reach the start point if you don't plan it well..
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

hi I don't think that would be very easy to do since Bergen is far away- check times on the Kystbussen website for Bergen to and return from Stavanger. You also need to take a boat to get to the start of the Preikestolen... More
hi I don't think that would be very easy to do since Bergen is far away- check times on the Kystbussen website for Bergen to and return from Stavanger. You also need to take a boat to get to the start of the Preikestolen hike so need to check those times. The bus from Stavanger to Bergen took about 4-4.5 hours one way but was very on time because it is timed with the ferries. The hike took me less than 1.5 hours each way hiking quite quickly

Well, it's Norway... so the weather is unpredictable at best.. When we climbed Preikestolen, the weather forecast was rain but we have no choice, it was that next morning or never as we have to fly back to Bergen then home to Atlanta via New York.
It was drizzling and cloudy while we were hiking but lo and behold when we reach the summit, the sky cleared up and we had a wonderful photos at Preikestolen with the clear view of the background and the fjord below...
One thing, I hate fellow tourist (not Norwegian locals) complaining about "touristy noise" or full of tourist during the hike... Hey, we are all tourist and every one paid good money to travel to Norway, Bergen, Stavanger, Tau to climb so just enjoy the view and don't be a complainer..
