A crowded day at the Pulpit Rock
We drove the 20 km up to Prekestol hytta or the Pulpit Rock Cabin, which lies at the foot of the trail leading up to the Pulpit Rock. There we were surprised to find that you had to pay 100 kr ($17) to park the car while we trekked. There were heaps of cars in the parking lot, so they were raking in cash.
The trail mirrored the parking lot, because there were tons of people trekking to the Pulpit Rock. I have never seen more people trekking to the top and it was literally a long line of people huffing and puffing all the way to the top. The trek is “supposed” to take 2 hours, but we made it up in 1:15, by bypassing a lot of wheezing people. At the top the view was breath taking as always and we shared it with probably a couple of hundred people in the 30 minutes we ate our lunch, before snapped some pictures and headed back down.
