Stavanger Pulpit Rock Excursion Reviews

Though not exactly a "walk in the park," this hike to the Pulpit Rock rewards those looking for a challenge!
Once in a lifetime views.

Once in a lifetime views. Definitely a strenuous experience for cruisers, especially when we're on a timetable. It was more of a march than a scenic hike. Please keep offering this, the time in port was too short for most independent tourguides to be able to say we'd be back in time for the boat. Read Less

This was a boat ride with lovely scenery, which culminated in seeing Pulpit Rock from the boat below. Enjoyable, but nothing special. Probably taking this same excursion any time but the middle of winter would have been more scenic, but for winter time, it was just fine. You know when you're going and should know what to expect from the season in which you visit. Read Less

A little research revealed that the Pulpit Rock cruise left from the same dock as the Sun berthed! So booking direct was a cost saving measure (as long as we arrived on time, which we did!) Lots of fellow Viking passengers had similar thoughts! We enjoyed the cruise and Grieg's music which wafted out at certain times! However, I must say I thought Pulpit Rock would be bigger!!!!

Great hike.
Sail Date: June 2018
Great hike. Inspired views. But too pricey ($190 per person) for no guide, a bus and ferry ride and a cold sandwich.

Sail Date: May 2018
This was one of our favorite optional tours and we're so glad we booked with Viking. Those on our cruise who booked privately ended up canceling their tours because of an earlier departure time. The views were amazing - a must-see!

One of the most difficult but rewarding experiences! Such a beautiful hike and the views from the top are breath taking! Royal Caribbean wasn't exaggerating about it being a strenuous hike so if you're not prepared to hike up/down a mountain for 4+ hours I wouldn't suggest this. Hiking boots and poles were very helpful! Read Less

An interesting trip into the fjord, viewing Pulpit Rock and various waterfalls and of course a stop for waffles. The tour boat was crowded and the sound system of poor quality -- could have used our Vox sets that day.

This was the best out of the three , the weather was reasonable , It was 9 degrees out and it was sunny and we went on a very picturesque coach trip . The tour guide for that trip was really annoying , she was really loud and she would never shut up and sometimes we just wanted to enjoy the view in silence without her rattling on about nothing . We stopped off at a cafe type place and had coffee with American style waffles and Pancakes but I didn't have any because I am trying to watch my weight , I know people will say you're on holiday so you should eat what you want but being on holiday isn't an excuse to over indulge and go home three stone heavier than you were before .
