Pulpit Rock Cruise & Hike

1 May – 30 September (except 17 May)

The best of both: Pulpit Rock from the water and from the summit!
This is a great combination tour. First, you see famous Pulpit Rock towering above the waters of the fjord, and then, after a couple hours of hiking, you can look down from the summit itself.

This roughly 2.5-hour fjord cruise takes us to the Vagabond’s Cave secret hideout; come close enough to ‘The Hanging Falls’ to feel the spray and then see Pulpit Rock towering above amid all the other stunning scenery. On the way back, we can drop you off at the village of Oanes so you can take the bus to the Pulpit Rock trailhead at Preikestolhytta.

From there, the hike takes roughly two hours each way. This is a moderately demanding trek without a guide, so be sure to bring food, water, outdoor apparel and good hiking boots! Afterwards, take the bus to the port of Tau to catch a ferry back to Stavanger.
