How many people have fallen to their deaths hiking the trail or taking in the view at the top? It looks terrifyingly treacherous.
Are you talking about the "Preikestolen" in Lysefjord? Not so many, as far as I know, just by hiking or viewing, but quite a few have made base-jumping with hanggliders and killed themselves that way.
It looks treacherous but you don't really notice how high it is when you're driving up from behind it, so to speak, and then walk to the top. Just grassy terrain. That's how I remember it.
It's when you're on a boat down below and it's looming over you, that's when it's very imposing.
it is quite exhausting to get to Prekkestolen at all and it also makes sense only in perfect weather-conditions.
On marked trails there has not been a death accident for years and years. Not in summer that is. Take care on slippery ground.

As mentioned before, we only stayed one night in Stavanger. We arrived there at 5.00pm, had dinner in the hotel and walked down to the harbour. The food festival 'Gladmet 2002' was held at this time ;-) I tell you, the whole harbour smelled like a big frying pan, just great!
I didn't know anything about that festival before, but I found the website about it here:http://www.gladmat.no/
Join them on Sola beach
I was really surprised to find them in April laying in the sun together with the kids playing in the water.
And the temperature was not more than 13 Celsius degrees in air. In the water it would be probably less.
You will find nice to take a walk on the beach, the sand is really good and if the wind is not blowing (it usually does) the temperature is rising more than you can expect...
Try to avoid the areas around the small "rivers"... they are full with urea and personally I do not like to see kids playing around.
If you like sport without practicing :)
You can enjoy at least the Beach Volleyball World Championships in Stavanger...
Last year it was amazing... I will let the photos speaking for me.
I have to mention that all the "beaches" are artificial, and the sand is imported from the surrounding beaches in Rogaland. Something as noisy as possible to encourage your preferred team...
Did you know that corn can be grown in Norway? The depicted corn was found in the Allotment garden Rosendal og Ramsvik which is situated in Storhaug east of downtown Stavanger, along the fjord (Gandsfjorden). You get there by taking bus no 4 to "Sandnesgaten".
There are four allotment gardens in Stavanger; Rosendal og Ramsvik and Strømvik in Stavanger east, Egenes and Våland in Stavanger west. During the summer season they are open for the public sundays, and coffee and waffles can be bought cheaply. It is very relaxing to walk along the walkways and look at all the beautiful flowers and vegetables people grow there.
The allotment movement started late in the 19th century. The first Norwegian allotment garden was founded in Halden in 1896, the second one in Oslo in 1907. Originally the gardens were meant for workers living in the cities to have the possibility to grow their own vegetables and have some fresh air. Before and during WWII the gardens were of great help. The lots were small, as were the cabins. The gardens were situated within city borders.
Nowadays the gardens are more for recreation. But they are still not meant to live in, although a lot of people spend the whole summer there. There is a lot of common activities and a place for the generations to meet. Most of the old gardens are still active, although some have been demolished due to "progress". The allotment movement has been fighting for the excistance of many a garden.
