Pulpit Rock, Forsand Municipality

#1 of 1,081 in Outdoors in Norway
Hike to Pulpit Rock for expansive views of Lysefjord from atop this 10,000-year-old natural rock formation. The relatively mild 4 km (2.5 mi) climb can last one to three hours depending on your fitness and hiking experience, and will take you 604 m (1,981 ft) above sea level. Bring your camera to capture some of the great views. Be sure to check the weather forecast in advance, as rain or fog could obscure the sea. Keep in mind that it is not recommended to hike this trail when there is still snow on the ground.

  • Hike at 4 km/road that took 1h 20min/road. Very stone and stairs so partly demanding terrain. The view wn over the Lysefjord and the massive pulpit rock is really worth seeing and a must if you like hiking and adventure.
