Altitude 604m a.s.l
Preikestolen (a.k.a. Pulpit Rock) is the most popular hike in the Stavanger area. Scenes of gawking tourists sunning on the table-flat top of this overhanging granite prow grace many postcards. Preikestolen rises over 600m above the scenic Lysefjord, a 40km long classic Norwegian fjord.
The standard route, a trail, climbs roughly 400m over 3.8km from the parking lot at Preikestolhytta. Aside from some minor route ambiguities, the path is obvious and well-marked, although quite rocky and muddy in spots. A couple alpine lakes at 2.5km tempt swimmers on warm days. The views are scenic, but quite ordinary until just before Preikestolen. From Preikestolen, scramblers will enjoy the 100m class 3 jaunt to the summit of Neverdalsfjellet, which boasts 360° views of Lysefjord and the island-studded bays toward Stavanger.
