A Geological Wonder
Preikestolen was formed during the last ice age, approximately 10,000 years ago. The retreating glaciers carved out the magnificent Lysefjord, leaving behind the steep cliffs that define the area. Over time, natural weathering processes, including freeze-thaw cycles and water erosion, shaped Preikestolen into its distinctive flat plateau, measuring about 25 by 25 meters (82 by 82 feet). The cliff’s vertical drop offers a panoramic view of the fjord below and the surrounding Norwegian wilderness.
