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 27 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.
