PULPIT ROCK

"Preikestolen" is no doubt the best known tourist attraction in the Ryfylke region and in Rogaland county. The characteristic mountain shelf 604 metres over Lysefjord has been visited by hundreds of thousands throughout the years. From the Preikestolhytta, a 7 km trail climbs the rest of the 350 metres to the top. Good shoes and physical health are necessary for the 3 - 4 hour hike.

In June - August there are daily buses from the ferry quay at Tau to the cabin. You can also enjoy the Pulpit Rock from the ferries and express boats on the fjord.
