Situated in the beautiful island of Moloka'i, Kalaupapa has some of the highest seas cliffs in the world, rising about 2000 feet from the pacific Ocean, making for an extremely pleasent view. The place has a sad history as it was declared a leper colony in the late 19th century when leprosy was thought of as highly contagious and untreatable.

Also known as Preacher's Pulpit, Preikestolen is an almost vertical cliff that rises to a staggering 1982 feet from the Lysefjorden. The top of the cliff is a flat surface of 25*25 metres and despite the dangerous fall, no fences have been installed by the Norwegian government who along with the people, believes that nature cannot be fenced. Goes without saying that the view form the top is one of the most stunning you can get anywhere in the world withe the cliff overlooking the heavenly Fjord.
