Drinking water

On the long hike to and from Trolltunga, you will need lots of fluid to stay hydrated. We advise you to bring plenty of water, as well as energising snacks such as chocolate and fruit. You can fill your water bottles in Skjeggedal, by the P2 parking lot.

Many hikers do refill their bottles from the streams in the mountains. The best and safest water is uphill and far away from the cabins. The water in the wilderness is not tested, so we cannot guarantee that it is safe. Please be advised that water may contain many impurities after heavy rainfall, and that it is always better to fill water from a running stream than from a lake.

For everyone’s safety, please keep your toilet visits well away from the streams and lakes, and downhill from the trails.

Toilets

Please be advised that there are no public toilets along the hiking trails. We urge you to use the toilets at the parking lots in Skjeggedal or Tyssedal before starting your long hike up to Trolltunga.

For everyone’s safety, when you’re hiking, please keep your toilet visits well away from the streams and lakes, and downhill from the trails.

NB You must bring back all your garbage (including used toilet paper) from the mountains. Discard it in the rubbish bins in the parking lot.

Keep our mountain wilderness pristine!
