Preikestolen or Prekestolen is a famous tourist attraction in the municipality of Forsand in Rogaland county, Norway. Preikestolen is a steep cliff which rises 604 metres (1,982 ft) above the Lysefjorden. Atop the cliff, there is an almost flat top of approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 ft × 82 ft). It sits on the north side of the fjord, opposite the Kjerag plateau, located on the south side.
Tourism at the site has been increasing in recent years, with between 150,000 and 200,000 visitors in 2012, making it one of the most visited natural tourist attractions in Norway. BASE jumpers often leap from the cliff.
The cliff is only accessible via a 3.8-kilometre (2.4 mi) long hike.
The Preikestolen cliff has been named one of the world’s most spectacular viewpoints by both Lonely Planet and BBC.
When Tom Cruise tweeted that the trailer was about to premiere (during Super Bowl 2018 in the US), he used a photo of himself hanging from Preikestolen as visual bait. '#MissionImpossible trailer drops later today. I’m so excited for you all to see it.'
