Pulpit Rock, Norway
Pulpit Rock is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the Stavanger region of south west Norway. The Lysefjord is 42 km (approximately 26 miles) long and a pearl in Norwegian nature. The glaciers formed the fjord landscape during the last Ice Age. The mountain soar up to 1000 metres (3000 feet) above sea level on both sides of the fjords and some places it ranges as deep in the fjords as it ranges above the sea level. The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) – the most famous scenic attraction in Ryfylke, and in all of Rogaland county, is located in the Lysefjord. To experience its majesty, hike up to it! You follow a well marked trail from the Pulpit Rock lodge through different mountain landscapes. The plateau is approximately 25 x 25 metres flat and you can enjoy a spectacular view of the Lysefjord and surrounding mountains.
