Some time ago it made me do a little exercise, so I decided to go on the route to get to Preikestolen (I know, I said a little, but I must take advantage of having 2 cultures). I had never been more tired, but I succeeded and with each step was more and more determined.
To climb, you must leave the area located at the base (right there until the tourist buses arrive). The tour can take around 4 hours. This includes about two hours of climb, half an hour of stay at the top and an hour and a half of descent. Keep in mind that everything depends on the physical condition of whoever decides to go up.
If you wish, you can go with your family, even children, the tour is long, but not too difficult. For something this place receives more than 80 thousand tourists a year.
I went and returned the same day to where I was staying, but if you are thinking of staying close, the closest accommodation is the Preikestolhytta, which are a series of wooden huts, which are left where the tour buses leave. Also, but a bit more secluded, you can find a camping area.
Take advantage of taking lots of photos. Seriously people will be impressed when they see them. I saw how many tourists risked their lives in doing so, just ask them to be careful and think they should return to their homes. Let’s avoid accidents and take advantage of what the nature of this beautiful place has to offer.
