    Pulpit Rock, Prekestolen or Preikestolen is one of the area's most profound turist attractions.

    This natural rock formation, with a 25 meter squared plateau, stands 604 meters above the sea. In 2013 more than 200 000 tourists visited Pulpit Rock.

    The original name of the rock formation is "Hyvlatonnå" - which means the tooth of a woodplane.

    Todays name could have its origin in the shape or possibly be due to that it might have been a place of sacrifice.

    The hike takes about two hours each way, by foot, even though it not more than 3 - 4 km from the Preikestolen Lodge. The trail is well marked and recently re-furbished.

    The main season for hiking is from April to September, but cold mornings or bad weather would make the trip unadvisable.

    The rock formation can also be enjoyed from the sea, by boat.
