Enjoy a unique high-season Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) adventure, guaranteed to be crowd-free! Join us on a twilight guided hike to Preikestolen and catch the sun rising over the Lysefjord.

While the vast majority of visitors hike to Preikestolen along the main trail during the day, our signature sunrise hike allows guests to experience the beauty of the Lysefjord in near-solitude. Hike to Pulpit Rock during the early-morning twilight hours – before the crowds of tourists have even begun to make their way up the trail. After the hike, enjoy breakfast / lunch at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge, which is located at the base of the hiking trail.

  • Day 1 - Preikestolen Sunrise Hike

    After an early-morning pick-up, your adventure will begin with a 30-minute transfer to the base of the hiking trail, including driving the world’s longest undersea road tunnel. After a short briefing, you’ll embark on your journey to Preikestolen. You’ll begin your tour in darkness, hiking with headlamps on trails that have recently been upgraded by Nepalese Sherpas. While the nocturnal wildlife watches, your guide will lead you up through the shifting terrain, which includes bogs, forests, and glacier-scoured mountains.

    After approximately 2.5 hours of hiking, you’ll reach the Preikestolen plateau just before sunrise. After finding yourself a comfortable place to relax, you’ll watch as the first beams of sunlight climb over the horizon and illuminate the Lysefjord’s steep mountain walls. While relaxing, you’ll have ample time to take photos and enjoy a warm beverage and snack atop Preikestolen. Long before the first tourist-packed busses arrive from Stavanger, you’ll be on your way back down the trail to conclude your unique hiking adventure with a well-deserved breakfast / lunch at Preikestolen Mountain Lodge.
