Pulpit Rock

Pulpit Rock

The Pulpit Rock is located in Ryfylke, a county in Western Norway. It is one of the most intense tourist attractions. The natural rock formation with a 25 meter squared plateau stands 604 meters above the sea.

“Hyvlatonnå” which is the actual name of the rock formation means the tooth of a wood plane. The present name could have its origin because of its shape or due to its image of a place of endurance.

The tower mountain plateau was probably formed by melting frost 10,000 years ago. Visitors can enjoy the wild and beautiful nature right up to the Pulpit Rock on a fantastic hike, from the Pulpit cabin.

Pulpit Rock is also a worthy choice for great fishing and camping opportunities. And along with that a very popular place for Base jumping which is a legal sport in this area, many experienced and first time jumpers gather here to yield in this extremely riskiest adrenaline sports in existence.

Despite the great danger, no safety ledge has been built on the boundary of cliff despite a great danger, in order to uphold the natural beauty of the cliff. There is no record of anyone falling over the side of the cliff accidentally till date, but there have been several deaths due to suicide.
