The hike to Preikestolen covers a total of 8 kilometres, and it's usual to allocate around 2 hours each way. Throughout the journey, you traverse birch forests and cross smooth rock surfaces in gently undulating terrain. The hike is demanding, but the trail is so well-prepared that most people reach the summit.
The iconic mountain plateau, measuring 25 x 25 metres, towers 604 metres above the Lysefjord. It's no surprise that both CNN Go and Lonely Planet have recognised Preikestolen as one of the world's most breathtaking viewpoints.
