One of Norway’s most visited natural sites is Preikestolen, which translates as Pulpit Rock. At the top of a steep cliff that rises almost 2,000 feet above the Lysefjorden below, a small flat plateau provides incomparable views of the fjord and nearby peaks. Depending on how quickly you make the trek, it’s a four-hour hike—two hours each direction—on the trail which was widened and improved in 2014. The closest city to Preikestolen is Stavanger, famous for colorful Holmegate street, home to many cafés and galleries, and its historic center which includes 173 wooden buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries.
