Pulpit Rock or Preikestolen, Prekestolen in Norwegian, is one of the areas most profound turist attractions.

This natural rock formation with a 25 meter squared plateau stands 604 meters above the sea.

Thousands of tourists visit the Rock every year.

The trip takes about two hours by foot, but the rock formation can also be enjoyed from the sea by boat.

The original name of the rock formation is "Hyvlatonnå" - which means the tooth of a woodplane.

Todays name could have its origin in the shape or possibly be due to that it might have been a place of sacrifice.
