Hike to Pulpit Rock for expansive views of Lysefjord from atop this 10,000-year-old natural rock formation. The relatively mild 4 km (2.5 mi) climb can last one to three hours depending on your fitness and hiking experience, and will take you 604 m (1,981 ft) above sea level. Bring your camera to capture some of the great views. Be sure to check the weather forecast in advance, as rain or fog could obscure the sea. Keep in mind that it is not recommended to hike this trail when there is still snow on the ground.

Very beautiful place. I hiked the Pulpit Rock during the winter (late November) and it was stunning! You can do the hike 1,5-2 hours before the sunset and watch this from the viewing spot. Amazing!
The Pulpit Rock is the most famous tourist attraction in Luther fjord. It is a huge rock with a height of 604m. The climbing path to the Pulpit Rock is 3.8km long without steps (have a look photo). It takes about 4-6 hours to go back and forth (according to physical strength and age).
