I hiked up to Pulpit Rock in Norway on May 16, 2009. It was one of the most amazing things I've ever done. Even pictures can't fully describe the beauty.

 

From Wikipedia:

 

Preikestolen or Prekestolen, also known by the English translations of Preacher's Pulpit or Pulpit Rock, and by the old local name Hyvlatonnå, is a massive cliff 604 metres (1982 feet) above Lysefjorden, opposite the Kjerag plateau, in Forsand, Norway. The top of the cliff is approximately 25 by 25 metres (82 by 82 feet) square and almost flat, and is a famous tourist attraction in Norway.
