Hiking to Preikestolen is not for the faint of heart, but the breathtaking views of the fjord and surrounding landscapes make it all worth it. We’ll take you on a journey through the stunning Preikestolen hike, to help you plan your own unforgettable adventure in Norway. We booked the Go Fjords tours for the entire experience in cruise to see the Lysefjords and then hiking up to Preikestolen.

Reached Stavanger Strandkaien by about 9.45 am after having breakfast. All other fellow travellers also reached and all ticket checks were done and our Journey began to Lysefjorden

We were already in love with the landscapes of Stavanger, In the cruise enough space was there, we could move around and there is an open space upstairs.

The hike starts at the Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which is located at the foot of the mountain. From here, the trail winds its way up through forests, over rocky terrain and past babbling brooks. Along the way, we got the stunning views of the surrounding landscape, including the Lysefjord and nearby mountains.The final stretch of the hike is the steepest, with a series of switchbacks leading up to the top of Preikestolen. Once you reach the summit, you’ll be rewarded with breathtaking panoramic views of the fjord and surrounding mountains. Standing on the edge of the cliff, with the wind in your hair and the sheer drop below you, is a truly unforgettable experience.The Pulpit Rock hike typically takes around 2-3 hours each way, depending on your fitness level and how often you stop to take in the views. It’s important to wear sturdy hiking boots, bring plenty of water and snacks, and dress in layers as the weather can change quickly in the mountains.

Overall, the Pulpit Rock hike is a must-do adventure for anyone visiting Norway, offering a thrilling challenge and unforgettable views of one of the country’s most iconic landmarks.

Lysefjorden, which means “light fjord,” is a breathtakingly beautiful fjord in southwestern Norway. Seeing the Pulpit Rock from the boat, it was a exciting experience as we are going to reach there after sometime.

After the cruise tour, we got into the bus where it will drop us to the point where the hike starts. The Bus Journey was also very beautiful, and on the way, we were discussing about will we make it to the top ?
