    Western Norway’s fjords are among the longest, deepest, narrowest and most dramatic in the world — their importance was recognized when two, Geirangerfjord and Næøyfjord, were added in 2005 to the UNESCO World Heritage List. There are various ways to approach the fjords. Driving the Fjord Coast Route involves 13 ferries; you also can take a train, a cruise and an overflight. You also can climb to Pulpit Rock, which overlooks the Lysefjord near Stavanger; you’ll gain 2,000 feet in elevation during a two-hour hike, and the view will make you completely forget your toils.

    This is my favorite place in the world, I hiked to this point for the first time when I 17 years old. I lived in Norway as an exchange student in high school and this is restorative nature to me!

    One of the best places to soak in the dramatic natural beauty of Norway is on the massive outcropping known as Pulpit Rock, overlooking the Lysefjord near the city of Stavanger. Reaching the top means a hike of about two hours and an elevation gain of nearly 2,000 feet, but there are plenty of benches and tables on the way up where you can take a break — and the view from the top is well worth the climb.
