One of the most famous tourist attractions in Norway, this massive 604 meter (1982 feet) tall cliff in Forsand, Norway is known by any of these five names: Preikestolen, Prekestolen, Preacher’s Pulpit, Pulpit Rock or Hyvlatonnå. Those who make the steep 3.8 km (2.4 mile) trek are treated to an amazing view over the Lysefjord. There is a lodge and a youth hostel nearby, and more accommodation can be found an hour away in the city of Stavanger.
Remote but absolutely breathtaking, Disko Bay off the Western coast of Greenland is poised to become a popular arctic vacation destination. Travelers to Disko Bay enjoy boat and kayak whale watching trips among the icebergs, year-round dog sledding, and spectacular hiking excursions. The area has very warm summers for Greenland, with temperatures reaching up to 27° Celsius (80° Fahrenheit). The nearby town of Qasigiannguit features Greenland’s oldest wooden house, now the town’s museum. The museum has a permanent collection of artifacts from various prehistoric cultures from the area, dating as far back as 2400 BCE.
