Activities near Trolltunga

In addition to Trolltunga, our area offers a wealth of rewarding activities and challenging adventures. The natural surroundings make it truly magical.

Enjoy kayaking on the often mirror-calm fjord. If you prefer a faster pace, sign up for a RIB fjord rafting tour. Consider a walk on HM Queen Sonja’s Panoramic Hiking Trail (Dronningstien) from Kinsarvik to Lofthus. Or how about cider tasting and an orchard tour with a local apple grower?

You can explore the pristine Folgefonna National Park, and go downhill skiing even in July! For a really exotic adventure, join an experienced guide for a glacier trek.

For the most enriching Trolltunga adventure, we recommend hiking with an experienced guide and spending a night at the camp that awaits you in the mountains. If you’re brave, sign up for the Trolltunga Via Ferrata tour – with a climb up the mountainside!

Please note that we strongly recommend at least a two-night stay in our area. That will give you time to savour Trolltunga and enjoy additional adventures.
