Tour Description

Pulpit Rock Classic is a daily, guided hike tour for a maximum of 8 people, with pick-up points in Stavanger. We arrange transportation, including the scenic ferry ride, and make sure you get back and forth in a comfortable and convenient way. An early start puts us in position at the trail to Preikestolen before the crowds arrive. A local tour host will come along for the whole trip to make sure you have the best possible experience. He/she will stop at all the all the good photo and viewing points (even the secret ones), and will bring selected Norwegian trail snacks for the hike.

You should be in generally good physical condition, and children should be 8 years or older.

Warm soup and freshly baked bread is waiting for us at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge after the hike.
