Excellent Fjords all the way to Pulpit Rock, lots and large and small waterfalls draining into the Fjord. Had a really nice stop at a place to get authentic pancakes and would love to try this again.

It may be a little hard at first, in some parts one must be really careful, especially when it's wet! But the top is absolutely stunning, the view is amazing. I highly recommend to leave early in the morning, because late morning/afternoon in summer days...More

Stavanger is far from Oslo, you will need 2 days minimum. The walk is 4 hours ( average time). In that period the hours of light are reduced so I suppose you won't start the climb before 9-10 am and you won't be back before... More

We hiked on a rainy day and got some great views. It was foggy most of the way up but clear at the top and had some really impressive views of the fjords. I would say go for it but make sure you are well equipped.
