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.

We strongly advise against the use of drones. Any drone use must comply with regulations. Please be considerate to your fellow hikers.

We strongly advise against the use of drones. Any drone use must comply with regulations and never pose a danger to others.

Please be considerate to your fellow hikers. For their safety, we ask you not to fly a drone when there are other people on Trolltunga.

All drone pilots should register via AVINOR’s website. 

Please keep your dog on a leash
Please bring back all your litter. Including used toilet paper
