Pulpit Rock rises a lofty 604 meters over the beautiful Lysefjord. The site grants visitors a viewpoint that both CNN and Lonely Planet have rated as one of the world's most spectactular.
The trek itself will take you through hilly terrain. There are delightful spots along to way for a picnic or a refreshing dip in water. If you are fit and accustomed to overland hiking, then you can expect the journey to take around two hours each way. Smaller children and those who are not so experienced should plan for a longer tour.
We recommend that you listen to local advice and pay attention to the weather forecast before you go. Wear sturdy shoes, preferably those intended for mountain hiking, and bring clothes for a variety of weather conditions. Bring your own food and drink for the journey.
