Road Toll & Parking Fee for Trolltunga

There are three parking lots for Trolltunga hikers. A toll road from the lower parking lot, P1 Tyssedal, takes you up to P2 Skjeggedal, and farther up to P3 Mågelitopp.

At P1 Tyssedal, you pay your parking fee in the parking machine. At P2 Skjeggedal, you pay both the road toll and the parking fee in the parking machine. Display your receipt in your windshield.

Parking at P3 Mågelitopp is very limited and can only be pre-booked. Before driving up to P3, you must also pay the road toll (NOK 200) in the parking machine at P2 Skjeggedal.

On busy days, if P2 Skjeggedal is full, park in P1 Tyssedal and take the shuttle bus to P2 Skjeggedal. There is also a shuttle bus from P2 up to P3 Mågelitopp. Tickets are sold separately on the buses – cash or credit card.

Our road tolls are used to ensure that all hikers have a spectacular outdoor adventure at Trolltunga! We construct and maintain the Trolltunga Trail and its signs and information boards, as well as emergency shelters. We also offer Mountain Ranger services and help maintain the Skjeggedalsvegen road.

The parking fees are used for maintenance of the toilets and the parking lots, and for wages to the parking attendants.
