Preikestolen – Stunning Yet Scary

Preikestolen – Stunning Yet Scary

It attracts thousands and thousands of people each summer from all around the world, and it’s located in Norway. We’re talking about the incredible Preikestolen.

Preikestolen, also known as Preacher’s Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, is a giant cliff 604 metres above Lysefjorden in Ryfylke, Norway. It’s basically 65 by 65 feet square and almost flat which makes it very special.

You will maybe get a headache if you peek down from it, because what you’ll see is a giant drop that will probably make you back off. But some tourists dare themselves to sit on the edge while enjoying the amazing view.

As being one of the most famous tourist attractions in Norway, the walk to get there is not that easy; 3.8 km of steep paths, so you should not take this trip in winter or spring time when there can be lots of ice on the road.

It takes you around 1-3 hours to get to the goal depending on how much hiking experience you have got.

This natural tourist attraction is getting more and more popular for each year, and both tourists and Norwegians say it’s really worth it.
