Stavanger including Pulpit Rock

  • Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)
  • Location: Morvik
  • Product code: PWD250

After a short transfer you board your helicopter and you will soon be high above the city and harbour,
with its islands, islets and bridges. That’s only the beginning of your journey, though: friendly, experienced, and
safety-certified pilots provide an unmatched experience of everything you look at and makes sure you have a pleasant flight.

Onwards, you can admire the beautiful Lysefjord and the protruding rock formation ‘Preikestolen’ or Pulpit Rock, also known by the English translations of Preacher’s Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local name Hyvlatonnå (“the carpenter-plane’s blade”), is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by
82 feet), almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway. You will fly at close range, to enable you to appreciate this very special and spectacular wonder of nature. Pass over wonderful lush areas, where different shades of green jostle side by side. Admiring the harbour and fjord landscape with islands scattered around it is easy to understand why the Viking
kings chose this area as their kingdom.

We will make one circuit over Stavanger City, you will be able to look down at the cruise ships in the harbor. You will also see Valbergstårnet, the highest point overlooking the harbor built in 1783 as a guarding tower, later in 1850 as the fire watch tower
for the city. The town teems with visitors during summer season. The old diocese of Stavanger (Stavanger Cathedral) built around 1100-1150 next to the heart of central Stavanger, the lake Breiavatnet. The old town next to the harbour has a collection of 18th-and 19th-century wooden structures which is easily viewed from the sky.
