There’s currently a glitch happening in Google maps that has been sending tourists to the wrong Norwegian town. There is a cliff called Preikestolen cliff that is improperly pinned in Fossmork, which is 20 miles away from its actual location.
Preikestolen, or Pulpit Rock is a 2,000 feet high plateau that requires a four-hour hike to go both up and down. It’s been considered one of the most scenic photo opp spots in the entire world.
A local resident named Gunnar Bøe spoke to a local newspaper about the error.
“Sometimes two, three, four or five tourists come in. Everyday. They say they are going to Preikestolen and understand nothing.”
Sometimes tourist busses arrive and then reportedly get upset when they find out that they are in the wrong place. However, Fossmark has tried to be accommodating and offers people binoculars to view the site from a distance if they want.
