It was not until the athlete Thomas Peter Randulf first noticed Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock) that the plateau was given its name and began its journey to fame. While on board the ship Oscar II, Randulf spotted the enormous plateau hanging above Lysefjorden. It was on that boat trip that he decided to conquer the massive flat rock above the fjord, which is how Preikestolen became one of Norway’s most well known tourist attractions.
