Lonely Planet has chosen the Pulpit Rock as one of the top ten most spectacular viewing points in in the world, in their newly published book «1000 ultimate sights»!
Among the other spectacular viewpoints on the list, we find famous attractions like the Grand Canyon Skywalk, Victoria Falls og Aucklands Sky Tower, to mention some.
Travel and tourism executive Ståle Brandshaug in Region Stavanger appreciates the Pulpit Rocks place in the book: ”The Pulpit Rock has been one of Fjord Norways most important attractions, maybe even more sought after by tourists than both the UNESCO-listed Geirangerfjord and the Nærøyfjord." he comments.
For the majority of visitors to the Stavanger region, the Pulpit Rock is a absolute must-see, through a hike to the top, or by sightseeing cruise on the Lysefjorden. "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.
