This video shows us people hiking on a massive landform. Preikestolen is located in Norway and is nick named "the Pulpit Rock" int the video you get to see up close what this extraordinary mountain looks like.

This is added to my To-do list for visiting Norway for sure. As I've said before, hiking is one of my favorite activities as it allows you to see some really striking places in the world. Natural environments are usually more interesting to me than man made structures. So these types of things are my favorite destinations.

Hiking the Preikestolen is another natural wonder. Beauty can be seen from all angles of this hike. From its clear blue waters, to its green trees. Hiking this land is a great way to get some fresh air and enjoy all that Norway has to offer. The topic of the rock has spectacular views that excite hikers.
