Full description
Your tour will begin as you are picked up at your location specified when booking. Note that drop off location, upon return, will be the same as pickup location. Your estimated pickup time is 5:00AM from your accommodation. Be ready 5 minutes before estimated pick up in front of main entrance. You will begin by heading to the Stavanger Ferry Station or Lauvvik Ferry Station, from where you will take the ferry across the fjord. From the other side is a short drive to Preikestolen Lodge, your starting point for the hike. The hike up will take you between 2-3 hours, with a distance of 4 kilometers each way. Once at Pulpit Rock, you will spend some time enjoying the sunrise and the beautiful nature, with plenty of time to take photos. You will also enjoy your packed lunch, beverages, and some snacks here. The hike back will likely also take 2 to 3 hours, and you can later expect to arrive in Stavanger at around 8:00AM-10:00AM.

Amazing experience

Everything was perfect. Our guide, Gerr, was very nice and really cared about each of us. The view was simply astonishing and the hike very fun. Absolutely recommended!

The tour was very worthwhile. On a good day, up to 4000 people hike up here. With a sunrise tour you can elegantly avoid the rush hour. The path is good but you always walk on big stones. Sticks can help. The tour description is partly out of date. You take the minibus from Stavanger through the new tunnel to the starting point. The start time was also not entirely clear everywhere. Pick up time in summer was 01:00. Gloves and a hat are highly recommended. Once you are up there waiting for the sun it gets chilly and cold.
