Hikers should be prepared with clothes and shoes for rainy weather. Hiking boots are strongly encouraged, or approach shoes, at the very least. Other suggestions include warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.
Have some water with you to keep hydrated, preferably in a container we can refill on the trail. Norwegian mountains are full of crystal clear, clean and very tasty water sources. Lunch will not be provided, but we suggest that you bring your own snack.
Last but not least, each hiker is responsible for carrying his/her own gear, so a suitable backpack is recommended.

We first head to the Stavanger ferry station or Lauvvik ferry station, and take the ferry across the fjord. From the other side is a short drive to Preikestolen Lodge, our starting point for the hike. The hike up will take us between 2 and 3 hours. Once at Pulpit Rock we will spend some time enjoying the view, the beautiful nature and most likely taking photos. We will also enjoy our packed lunch, beverages and some snacks here. The hike back will likely also take 2 to 3 hours, and expect to arrive back in Stavanger around 03:00-04:00 PM.
