Description de l'activité

Avoid the crowds without compromising on the best views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord on this scenic hike to Pulpit Rock.

Every year, more than 300,000 hikers make it to the summit of Pulpit Rock - why share your experience with the tourists when you can navigate the landscape like a local? Travel through the area's lakes and highlands using traditional trails and off-the-map routes thanks to nature guides that know the region by heart. Offering double-take views free from selfie-sticks and vacationing crowds, get a chance to experience this arresting landscape in the solitude the natural wonder deserves.

Location
One of Norway's most popular natural landmarks, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) looks over the Lysefjord (42-km fjord) in Ryfylke. Close to the town of Stavanger, the most popular hiking routes to the summit start at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge. From Stavanger, you can take a take a ferry from to Tau, or take car ferry from Lauvvik to Oanes. Parking fees may apply. Alternative hikes use unmarked trails that should only be attempted with an experienced guide.

Activity
Organised in association with the Norwegian Trekking Association, this scenic hike to Preikestolen starts by canoeing across Refsvatn Lake. Reaching the other side of the lake, follow forgotten trails into the treeline where all trace of civilisation disappears and the rest of the route is off-trail hiking & scrambling. A 6-hour hike (9.5 km/ ascent 600 m) you’ll experience out-of-this-world and rarely-seen views of Preikestolen and the Lysefjord - reaching a viewpoint of Preikestolen that the majority of others only get to see in tourist brochures. Afterwards, walk on Pulpit Rock itself - an impressive plateau that towers 604 meters above sea level. There, you’ll get to view the 1000 meter-high mountain walls surrounding fjord. Detouring back onto one of the off-the-map trails,  you’ll be able to enjoy the remainder of the hike in near-solitude while you take in the beauty of the Norwegian wilderness.

Conditions
During 70% of the hike, you’ll follow off-the-map trails which are overgrown and have (almost) been forgotten. These trails are rarely used and the cairns that lead the way through dense forests are difficult to find.  Considered mountainous terrain, there are steeper sections with rocky surfaces requiring good eye/hand/feet coordination. Unsteady surfaces and a variety of obstacles (ie creeks, swamps, bushes, boulders) occur.
