Guided hike to Pulpit Rock
(Preikestolen) (every Monday)
This is DYOP’s gentler hike day, but with just as much reward with stunning
views 604 m (1982 ft.) above the Lysefjorden. A short drive from the hotel, then onto a
ferry journey across the tranquil Lysefjorden and your visual adventure has begun…
The hike is not a particularly long one, 3.8 km through climbs and descends which takes
1-3 hrs to reach the peak depending on experience and fitness. When you reach the top
you are greeted by a perfectly flat platform that was formed in the ice age 10 000 years
ago which juts out overlooking the fjord. The air just doesn’t get fresher than this,
breathing deep whilst absorbing the breathtaking views and epic scale of the land all
around you. An exceptional place to sit down for a pack lunch and appreciate the
serenity, before the hike back down to the ferry. Once back at the hotel you will feel
reenergized, inspired and fulfilled. A great time to reflect on your thoughts and dreams
and reflect on the memories you created, and will cherish forever.
