Preachers Rock – Preikestolen, Norway

The Pulpit or Pulpit Rock is a natural rock platform in Ryfylke in Norwegian Rogaland county, and a tourist destination with a wide view over the Lysefjord and the surrounding mountains.

The size of the rock plateau is approximately 25 by 25 meters. The Fjellkante falls 604 meters vertically from the nearly 40-kilometer-long fjord. The pulpit is hiked annually by about 100,000 people.

The Pulpit Rock is located in Rogaland, a western district in southern Norway. The distance to Stavanger, the fourth largest city of Norway is, as the crow flies about 25 kilometers.

The platform is accessible from the end of the road for just over a Preikestolhytta hiking and bridle path. The path leads steeply until a ridge up and then almost ground level through muddy forest paths through piles of Urskarhöhe and from there through a boulder field to Neverdalsskaretpass up. On a small lake over one finally reaches the platform through a secured unsecured with stairs and railings piece.
