"How do one get to the Pulpit Rock, is the single most asked question in our tourist information offices", says Liv Kristina Bantel, team leader for the tourist informations in Stavanger and Sandnes.

Region Stavanger BA hosts 60 to 80 trips for international media and trade representatives every year. This produces significant amounts of media coverage abroad for the Pulpit Rock, and leads many visitors to the platou with the magnificent view of the Lysefjord.
