Discovering the breathtaking views and incredible nature that Norway has to offer is an easy task thanks to the Pulpit Rock Off the Beaten Track - Preikestolen Hiking Tour. With out-of-the-world views and near-solitude, this is the most popular hiking location of its kind and has attracted hundreds of thousands of avid hikers in the past.
This incredible hiking adventure is rated as being more difficult, which means that participants should have experience with hiking in mountainous terrain on unsteady surfaces and be in excellent physical condition. The hiking gear that you will need to bring consists of rugged boots, warm gloves and hat, fleece or woollen sweater, water-resistant pants, thick socks, rain-proof jacket, packed lunch, small backpack, snacks, and healthy beverage.
Your professional tour guide will arrive early in the morning and you will then be transported to the base of the hiking trail, where you will enjoy a hot cup of coffee and safety briefing. Once everyone is ready to go, you will be treated to a peaceful canoe ride across Refsvatn Lake before beginning the 3.5-hour hike. From there, your small hiking group will be taken along a backcountry, unmarked trail that most people will never be able to experience. Overgrown and full of amazing sights and sounds, this part of your journey will take you through the wilderness that has mostly been forgotten. After making your way through dense forests and above the tree-line, the final third of this fantastic excursion will go off-trail and present you with rarely seen views of Norway, where you will be able to stop periodically for photos of incredible panoramic views and gorgeous wilderness areas. After lunch, you will arrive atop the beautiful plateau overlooking the Lysefjord and witness mountain walls that are over 1000 meters high. Once everyone has rested, your group will head back to civilization with two more incredible hours of hiking that will include paved trails created by Nepalese sherpas using locally-sourced stones. If your group still has any energy left, your guide will take you on another off-map trail before heading back to Stavanger.
