Preikestolen or Prekestolen (aka Preacher’s Pulpit or Pulpit Rock is a massive cliff 604 meters above the Lysefjord, opposite the Kierag plateau, in Forsand, Norway. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres, square and almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway The walk to Preikestolen is very steep in places. The path starts at the Preikestolhytta Youth Hostel at a height of approximately 270 metres, and climbs to 604 metres. The hike takes 1-3 hours depending on the experience of the hikers. Even though the elevation difference is only 334 metres and the walk is not particularly long (3.8 km each way) the total elevation gain and loss over the course of the hike is more than one might initially expect as the path goes up and down various ridges. See my photo of Kjeragbolten and Lysefjord – all in the same vicinity in Norway.
