You can check the conditions at www.preikestolen365.com. Getting to the trailhead of the Pulpit Rock is easy and convenient. If you have your own car, it will take you 45 to 60 minutes. There are also buses from Stavanger and you can find more information on www.preikestolen.no. Please note that it can get quite crowded on weekends and in the summertime so I would advise you to arrive early.

This is a great place to book a Lysefjord cruise and experience the Pulpit Rock! This is from their website: Our electric boat sails from downtown Stavanger to Lysefjord and Preikestolen all year. The 3-3,5 hours Lysefjord cruise is filled with fun for young and old. In Fantahålå (Vagabond’s Cave) you see where the “vagrants” hid from the sheriff in the old days. Not long after, we arrive at Preikestolen, where Tom Cruise climbed the sheer mountain face in the movie Mission Impossible 6. Then we continue to the towering Hengjanefossen waterfall, where the crew brings the bow so close to the falls that you risk getting your face doused with delightful spray!

I highly recommend visiting Hå gamle prestegard which is is an art and culture center housed in traditional buildings. It's a stunning drive along the north sea and from here you can explore and hike along the dramatic and scenic coastline. The exhibits tend to be great and the café has delicious food and snacks.
