TROLLTUNGA

Norway’s most spectacular rock formation

Trolltunga is one of the most scenic and spectacular cliffs in Norway, hovering 700 metres above Ringedalsvatnet lake. Situated at the western edge of the Hardangervidda plateau, near the town of Odda, Trolltunga was carved by the icecap that once covered most of Scandinavia.

The hike through high-mountain terrain up to Trolltunga (1180 m) is long and demanding, but you are rewarded with magnificent views.

From the main trailhead at P2 in Skjeggedal, the round-trip hike is 28 km with an ascent of almost 800 metres. The estimated hiking time is 8–12 hours.

There is an additional trailhead at P3 Mågelitopp. The round-trip hike from P3 Mågelitopp is 20 km with an ascent of about 320 metres. The estimated hiking time is 7–10 hours.

Hikers need to be properly equipped and in good shape.

An epic hike marked with a thrilling pose at the edge of a slice of rock overlooking a spectacular lake surrounded by mountains. This is Trolltunga in Norway. A must-do hike in this country with non-stop breathtaking views and noted as ‘the most spectacular rock formation in Norway’.
.
Trolltunga hike is around 28km out and back with 800 meters elevation. It is a strenuous hike that will take you climbing over boulders, crossing several creeks and streams, climbing steep rocky and gravel trails. The entire hike takes around 10 to 12 hours to complete along a well-marked trail.
.
Trolltunga, a tongue sticking out into space that is 700 meters high! A perfect place to see Ringedalsvatnet lake and the whole mountainous area. Especially in the peak season when Trolltunga sees a lot of visitors, taking turns at the ledge takes some waiting.
.
The best time for your hike is from June 1 to September 30. Within these months, you can hike independently (if able and experienced) or join a guided group. Only guided hiking is allowed outside of these months.

This is the result of a stupid idea I had back in September when I went to Trolltunga. Not gonna lie, it took me a whole 2 hours train ride to create this. I planned on posting it straight away, since the Lion King movie was still fresh, but then I got lazy and honestly, I forgot about it. So here it is now, almost 8 months later and for no apparent reason.

Hiking dos and don’ts

Always

  • Bring plenty of food and drink.
  • Bring extra warm, windproof and waterproof clothing.
  • Stay together with your fellow hikers – never leave them on their own.
  • Help keep our mountain wilderness pristine! Please carry all your garbage back, discard it in the rubbish bins in the parking lots. Small rubbish bags are available from your bus driver.
  • Your campsite and toilet visits must be downhill from trails and well away from streams.

Never

  • For safety reasons, don’t operate drones in the hiking areas.
  • Never attach stickers onto signs or information boards.
    This information is vital to all hikers!
  • Don’t light campfires between April 15th and September 15th
  • Don’t pollute our streams!
  • No camping at the trailhead
