NorwayNorway in a Nutshell: Stavanger to Preikestolen

On 2 July 2002 from Preikestolen, Norway , trackback

On 1 July I had some breakfast at the shore of the lake, before catching the bus to the city centre with Aachim. There we got on the car ferry to Tau, where a connecting bus was waiting to go to Preikestolhytta. I checked in and we started to hike to Preikestolen. But I was hiking faster than everyone else, so I overtook most of the tourists, and got to the Pulpit Rock in 1 hour 15 minutes, instead of 2 hours. The Pulpit Rock at Preikestolen was really cool to see, and a nice test of vertigo fear by looking 600 metres down into the fjord. I had some lunch and when Aachim arrived, he made the necessary photo of me on the edge. After that I wanted to see Preikestolen from a higher perspective, so I hiked further up the mountain. But there I saw an even higher top and I hiked up there. At the top I had a breathtaking view of the Lysefjord from Lysebotn to Stavanger. When I wanted to go back, I lost track of the path, so I hiked down a steep slope back to the path to Preikestolhytta. There I had dinner and relaxed a bit before going to sleep.
