After the exhaustive hike 600 m up the Prikestolen or Pulpit Rock, you will be rewarded with the astonishing view on Lysefjord that opens in front of you from the relatively flat plateau. As you come up to the edge, you are likely to find yourself at a loss for words at the sight of such a natural beauty. The months between April and September provide all the necessary conditions to successfully reach the top of the Pulpit Rock, whereas the time between October and March is known as the low season due to short days and slippery ground.
