I and my friends did a trek to Pulpit rock. We were not used to trekking normally and this was quite some demanding experience. But all worth it! When we reached Priekestolen, it was raining quite decently which we expected as we have heard that...More

One of the most fantastic experiences I had was the first time I climbed up to the top of Pulpit Rock a decade ago. The pathway were not yet developed during that time, so the feeling of being connected with nature was even more amazing....More

Stavanger is far from Oslo, you will need 2 days minimum. The walk is 4 hours ( average time). In that period the hours of light are reduced so I suppose you won't start the climb before 9-10 am and you won't be back before... More
