We were lucky with the sunny weather. Although quite in shape it really is quite a climb. Respect for parents with small children and elders. But worth every step.

The hike to pulpit rock is not hard; some people may hike it faster than others, depending on their fitness level. The views from the top are incredible... This is a must do if you are visiting Stavanger!

We went on the hike up Pulpits Rock. It’s 4 kms each way so depending on your level of fitness can take 4-5 hours. Of the 4 km about 3km is like walking up an uneven and steep winding staircase up a mountain. It is...More

Pulpit has a great stunning view, easy to hike, but Kjeragbolten...that’s the challenge hikewise speaking and for the terrific landscapes. Much Better than the Pulpit.
