An international walk — Preikestolen, Norway

June 19, 2014

Preikestolen and Lysefjord

Preikestolen, with the Lysefjord behind.\

I’ve been working in Norway this week but before heading home had booked today (Thursday 19th June) in as a day off months ago, specifically to do the walk to Preikestolen, ‘The Pulpit Rock”. This granite platform rises nearly 2,000 feet directly above the Lysefjord below, and has been named one of the World’s Top 10 Views by the Lonely Planet guide. Although the walk was crowded with people, it was certainly worth doing, as I hope this photo shows. I have therefore added Preikestolen to the list of “international walks” which I’ve been maintaining as a kind of sideline to the main Lake District project pages — so do have a look at the new page if you’re interested.

Next LD walk before about 2nd July, I hope….

In the mist

On arrival at the top of the rock things were shrouded in mist for a few minutes — adding a mystique to the other qualities

    It’s not that unlike Lake Chelan in the Pacific Northwest, but the edge of the cliff is nothing short of amazing.
