Preikestolen is one of Norway’s most popular hiking routes. This rock formation will have you standing on a breathtaking mountain plateau that sits 604 metres above Lysefjord. Hiking to Pulpit Rock is an experience like no other, and it starts with a bus ticket.
Our one-way ticket runs from Stavanger to Preikestolhytta, the starting point of your hiking trip. Once we’ve got you from A to B, you’re free to explore Pulpit Rock and the surrounding area of Ryfylke. It’s such an amazing place, visitors become enchanted by the stunning scenery and choose to spend a few days in the area. Who can blame them! That’s why we offer one-way tickets from Preikestolhytta to Stavanger, so you can make the return journey when you’ve finished making memories. You’re free to explore at your own pace!
Thebus from Stavanger will take you to Preikestolhytta and drop you at Preikestolen car park. The bus takes about one hour by bus. Once you arrive at the car park, it’s an unguided climb to the top of Pulpit Rock.
There are a number of departures from Stavanger and Prekestolen throughout the day. Don’t forget to account for how long the hike will take so you can make it back in time for your return journey.
Please note that the bus operates on a first come first serve basis. If the bus is full you may wait for the next departure.
