Preikestolen or Prekestolen, also known by the English translations of Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local name Hyvlatonnå (“the carpenter-plane’s blade”), is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, in Forsand, Ryfylke, Norway. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet) square, almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway.
During the four summer months of 2009, approximately 130,000 people took the 3.8 km (2.4 mi.) hike to Preikestolen, making it one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in Norway.

  1. 1. The Pulpit in Norway 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 dream of 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
