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 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.

Ringedalsvannet i Skjeggedal, på vei fra Trolltunga igår☀️
Anbefaler å gå fra Mågelitopp, 20 km t/r. Der kan man booke parkeringsplass, begrenset med plasser. Ellers er det mulig å ta shuttlebuss fra nedre parkering.

Da fikk jeg hoppa meg opp på Trolltunga også. Lang og slitsom tur, men veldig fin.

After 4 years in Norway I finally did perhaps the most iconic hike, up to Trolltunga! This was 6:30am after camping near the top.

Above the clouds, freedom must be so limitless! ⁠

Trolltunga is undoubtedly one of the most impressive cliffs in Norway. It is located at about 1100 meters above sea level and about 700 meters above Ringedalsvatnet lake. Trolltunga was formed during a series of ice ages.⁠

On a spectacular hike, you can experience beautiful views and untouched nature. The walk to Trolltunga goes through high mountains and takes a whole day, is long and physically and mentally demanding. But it is definitely worth it. The best time for a hike to Troll Tongue is from May to October. ⁠

There are a few things you have to keep in mind:⁠

-care for plenty of food and drink⁠
-Bring extra warm, windproof and waterproof clothing⁠
-Stay together with your fellow hikers – never leave them ⁠
on their own.⁠
-use the rubbish bins and keep the environment clean⁠

If you like mountains and hiking off the beaten track, Kyrgyzstan could be something for you. untouched nature and beautiful mountain landscapes await you.⁠
