Preikestolen – or the Pulpit Rock - is one of Norway's most famous tourist draws, attracting over 250,000 visitors every year. The remarkable rock formation – a flat 25x25m - towers 604 metres over the Lysefjord in Ryfylke near Stavanger.
You can go by boat on the Lysefjord on a Pulpit Rock cruise. This is maybe the fastest and easiest way to get a great view of the majestic Pulpit Rock.
If you would like to spend some more time in the region we can recommend a hike to the Pulpit Rock. On this tour you go by ferry from Stavanger to Tau, and the bus will take you up to the Pulpit Rock parking lot. From the parking lot you have a wonderful hiking tour for 1,5-2 hrs to the Pulpit Rock.
