Intermediate to difficult! Amazing views. Bring plenty of water and food!

Pretty easy fun hike. Completed back in August 2014. At the end saw some people had picnics. My friends and I did some yoga.

Amazing view. Busy trail in late July. 10-13 minute wait for the most highly coveted picture spot.

Amazing views!! Pretty tough uphill portions but overall not too bad.

amazing views!

We started at 3:00 am to avoid crowds and we had a beautiful hike that included sunrise.

Amazing views. Very windy at the top. went out of season so it was very quiet. wonderful hike

One of the best views I’ve had at the end of a hike. Got to eat lunch dangling 1800 feet above the water.

Fantastic hike. It is challenging and you need to be in decent shape. The view from the top is absolutely amazing. We took a Fjord cruise followed by the hike. It was cool to see the Fjord from the bottom and then the top. Make sure to actually wear shoes appropriate for hiking. There were a few tourists trying to do this hike in high heels. It was a sprained ankle waiting to happen.

Simply amazing! Can be busy but still excellent.

Nice hike, great view. One of the more busy/toeristic hikes in Norway.

Amazing view ! Be careful a lot of wind at the top.

Not technically challenging. There is however a good amount of elevation change over s rather short distance. Enjoyable hike no matter how you cut it.

If this hike were just about anywhere else, I would give it 5-stars. This one is great, but it just doesn't compare to Trolltunga or Kjerag. If you do this one, make sure you hike up above Pulpit Rock and do the loop trail. There are far fewer people and the views are much better than on the rock itself.

This hike is not for the faint of heart. It is worth attempting. Not necessarily difficult, just continuous effort. We've been twice with our 6 and 8 yr olds. Certainly, the summit is breathtaking, but there is much to see on the way up and back. Our first climb was on a sunny 21 degree day in June. Our second climb, was maybe 18 degrees and rainy (not a sprinkle, heavy rain) in late July. I'd do it again!

Absolutely awesome trail for the avid hiker and outdoor enthusiast. Short distance wise but you get a respectable 2000ft elevation gain. If you ever find yourself in the beautiful country of Norway, you simply have to partake in this fjord-set adventure. In the upper parts of the trail you'll come across a series of little lakes and rain basins dotted with colorful heather and various conifers. Once you summit the Pulpit Rock you'll be able to indulge in a beautiful vista that is the Lysefjord gleaming in vibrant turquoise color. You'll experience varied terrain ranging from compacted earth, man-made wooden bridges spanning across swamps to boulder fields and near vertical talus slopes. Some scrambling is required.

Great trail with a lake and sheep! easy to take the train up or down and walk the other. Can be done in an hour or longer.

Nice view, too crowded in summer

Awesome!

A fairly straightforward hike, as there are no trees and you can see your destination (the glacier) the entire time. The climb is quite shallow for most of the way, with several short periods of steep ascents. Lots of rocky terrain and muddy/boggy ground. At the destination, glacial melt creates deep mud, so keep an eye on your footing as you approach the ice. Overall a beautiful, scenic hike.
