Stavanger Aftenblad melder at Lonely Planet har Preikestolen øverst på sin liste over “most breathtaking viewing platforms”, og tar med begrunnelsen slik:

“Sometimes it’s best to leave it to nature. While glass floors and skyscrapers can be impressive, in Norway it’s a mighty lump of stone that offers the best outlook. Preikestolen – Pulpit Rock – looms 604m above Lysefjord, one of myriad incisions along Norway’s west coast. There are mountains aplenty hereabouts, but this summit seems built for purpose: its almost perfectly flat top juts out over the water (no safety barriers here), commanding uninterrupted if vertiginous views. Scarier still, peer down the cracks in Preikestolen’s surface – caused by 10,000 years of glacial action – and hope no new ones form just then …”
