  • well... Preikestolen is not in Denmark. It is in Norway. Due to the topology of Dennmark there is no chance there is a similar thing there.

Preikestolen in Denmark Preikestolen in Denmark Presentation Transcript

  • Preikestolen “The Rock Pulpit” Translated from the original Italian by Cassius Carter
  • Near Stavanger in Norway there is a mysterious rock that rises 600 meters above the fjord Lysefjorden and to get there is not a climber's dream! The Preikestolen (literally “Rock Pulpit” is perhaps the most famous attraction in Stravanger. Once you've arrived at the parking lot at an elevation of about 270 meters, you're at the beginning of the trail that leads to the summit of the rock terrace from which in a little less than two hours and another 600 meters you will get to the peak of the fjord. To say that you'll enjoy a breath taking view is a no brainer! However be sure you are properly equipped to go on even though the trail is well tracked, good trekking shoes are strongly advised. You have to be in good physical condition!
