Lysefjord Cruise & Hike to Pulpit Rock

  • Water Adventures
  • Fjord Adventures
  • Mountain & Glaciers

Are you ready to hike up to one of the world's most spectacular viewpoints? The Pulpit Rock is a dramatic mountain plateau 604 meters above the Lysefjord. We take you on a fjord cruise on the Lysefjord and further by bus to the starting point of the hike! Local packed lunch from the Preikestol Cabin is included in the tour.

Lysefjorden is formed by powerful glaciers during the ice age. Here, the mountain peaks extend 1000 masl on both sides of the fjord and provide a fantastic view on the fjord cruise. The Pulpit Rock is one of the most famous nature attractions in Norway and standing on top of the Pulpit Rock and enjoying the wonderful view and the dizzying height is truly a unique experience.

Tour description

The tour starts from Stavanger on a quiet fjord cruise with a new electric boat that sails silently in the beautiful fjord landscape on the Lysefjord. You get to see the Pulpit Rock from the seaside where Tom Cruise climbed the steep mountain wall in the film Mission Impossible 6 before you continue to the mighty Hengjanefoss waterfall.

After an exciting fjord cruise, you get off in Forsand, where a bus will bring you to the Preikestolen Cabin. Here you pick up your packed lunch and start the hike up to Pulpit Rock. The hike takes approx. 2 hours each way and is a wonderful experience in itself! The trip to Pulpit Rock has a moderate degree of difficulty. The trail goes over bogs, forests, and stone stairs built by Sherpas from Nepal to protect the terrain and facilitate the trip. The path is well marked along the entire road towards Pulpit Rock. The actual walk takes between 3 and 4 hours. Return to Stavanger by bus through the world's longest underwater tunnel.
