We went on a guided hike to Pulpit Rock last week and the nature and views are stunning! I highly recommend visiting this place, and even with an average fysical condition this is doable. Circumstances were good, we had some fog on the top but that flew over quickly.

Beautiful location. A short walk takes you to this amazing site! Beautiful views from the top, also seen from the fjord the next day. Well worth the trip!

Not going to lie. This hike kicked butt for two old-timers. The main difficulties were our age, the crowds, weather (drizzle), terrain and time crunch. This hike was part of a RCL cruise excursion from Stavanger (port about 1 hour away). Few ships are in port long enough for this excursion and it was a primary reason for choosing this... More

In my opinion it is one of top 3 Norvegian places (together with Kjerag and Troll tongue). Definitely must if You are around Stavanger. You can get here by public transport or own car. Parking is near the hotel and the 40-70 minutes walk one way. On the way there are lots of places to rest, but keep in mind... More

The whole hike featured beautiful views, but the view from the top was absolutely unreal. Wear proper hiking boots because the terrain is uneven. Looking at the distance and estimated time to the top, I unwisely wore soft-soled shoes. The trails were wet from earlier rains and between the rough terrain and the water soaking into my shoes, I ended... More

The hike up the rock is cool and doable for almost everyone. After arriving at the top of the rock you will be amazed by one of the best views in Norway!

Very enjoyable, not too strenuous hike. The scenery is great and the view at the top is quite fantastic. We did it as a day trip from Stavanger. It's a very straightforward drive.

We took a boat ride out to Pulpit Rock as an extra tour provided during our Viking Ocean cruise. It was a great little trip. We stopped at several points along the way including a camping spot where HEARTY hikers could overnight, a waterfall (that the captain of our little boat pulled the bow of the boat under), and a...
