The Top 13 Best Hikes In Europe

From a beach bum to a hike addict. I didn’t realise hiking was growing on me so much. Lying on the beach while drinking piña colada – that always sounded like a perfect holiday to me. Who’d rather prefer to go up the hill for several hours while struggling to catch a breath? Certainly, not me! I could barely last half an hour on the treadmill! Until my recent visit to Norway where I hiked Pulpit Rock. After that, I was hooked. Determined to climb the mountain peaks wherever I travel now, I compelled this list of the best hikes in Europe.

Hike to Pulpit Rock

After doing a very brief research (google images) on the things to do in Stavanger and seeing all the amazing pictures of the cliffs; I just knew I had to do them! A long weekend in Stavanger seemed like enough time for a hike or two. Preikestolen or also called the Pulpit Rock was the closest one.

A 604 meters high steep cliff formed by melting glaciers at the end of the Ice Age. Now, claimed to be one of the Norway’s most famous mountain hikes. Unsurprisingly, as it offers a truly breathtaking view over the Lysefjord. Mother nature, I bow to you.

They say the way you spend New Year’s eve is the same way you’ll spend the rest of the year. Well, I spent it abroad, in the rain. And that’s exactly how my year looked so far. Whenever I went on a trip it was raining. I assumed it will still be summer in Norway at the end of August. I was wrong. The weather forecast was against me. I knew one thing. Nothing will stop me from hiking Pulpit Rock. Rain or no rain, I set off my journey.
