Pulpitin norway

  1. 1. Please forgive language errors.. Had to translate it..
  2. 2. In FORSAND, not far from STAVANGER in the Norwegian province Rogaland, there is a huge CLIFF which towers 600 m above the fjord Lysefjorden ... The plateau at the top is about 25 meters by 25 meters and is nearly flat. But … it is NOT fenced off !!!Reaching the top of the cliff isn’t the dream of climbers, but it is the dreamof the approximately 100.000 tourists who “conquer” the pulpit each year. The pulpit is undoubtedly the most wellknown attraction of Stavanger. At the parking the path to the top of the cliff starts at an altitude of about 270 m … a track that will lead in about 2 hours to the plateau, 600 m above the fjord. Of course you can enjoy a breathtaking and unique view there! Take care to have the right outfit: although the path is well built, climbing boots are stronly advised !AND YOU CERTAINLY HAVE TO BE IN A GOOD PHYSICAL CONDITION
