The walk to Pulpit Rock takes you about 1,5 hours up there for people with normal fitness and condition. The path up there is steep and demanding at times but there's enough flat parts in between to catch your breath. Back is about 1 hour....More

While the hike is challenging, it is certainly worth the effort. Once you make it pass the short stint of stairs going up at 2km mark, its pretty easy and enjoyable. Make sure you check the weather before you go however! Bring warm clothes for...More

This is a "must see" if you are traveling through Stavanger. We opted for the boat trip only and did not do the hike to the top of Pulpit Rock. It ended up being a rainy day so it was a good choice for us.

At 1,932 feet from base to top, this is an impressive outcrop of rock. It is squared off and straight up. People can hike to it, we were content to see it as part of our fjord cruise.

Perfect walk. Have proper shoes and gear for it and you will be ok. It is 4 km so 8 in total good for beginners too. It was my first try and I loved it so much!

I don't have an answer. I can only suggest to get some information in tourist office in Stavanger, or did an organized excursion with local guide: take a look at Outdoorlife Norway

We hiked on a rainy day and got some great views. It was foggy most of the way up but clear at the top and had some really impressive views of the fjords. I would say go for it but make sure you are well equipped.
