The Pulpit Rock and Kjeragbolten
The Pulpit Rock, perhaps the most famous mountain peak in the region, is a well-known tourist hotspot on the northern side of Lysefjorden in Forsand municipality, which neighbours Stavanger and Sandnes.
The plateau, which is nearly flat, measures around 25 x 25 metres and towers some 604 metres above sea level. The Pulpit Rock offers superb views of Lysefjorden and the unique surrounding landscape. The landmark derives its name from the characteristic appearance of the rock formation. It takes approximately two hours to walk the 3.8 kilometres from the car park at Preikestolshytta to the cliff.
Further into the fjord, opposite the Pulpit Rock, is the famous Kjeragbolten rock formation – an awe-inspiring photo opportunity. For more information about the Pulpit Rock and Kjeragbolten, please contact the front desk.
