Backpack and hiking boots

Equipment

The weather in the high mountain can change quickly, and it is always colder on the high mountain than at the fjord. Check the weather report and do not walk if there is strong wind, heavy rain or fog. Every quarter, there are rescue actions for hikers in difficult precautions: Mountain shoes, extra clothing, raincoats, plenty of food and drink, flashlight, simple first aid equipment, mountain cloth.

Equipment can be rented at the Trolltunga Active store in Skjeggedal and at the tourist office in Odda turistkontor@odda.kommune.no. Contact Odda Tourist Office for more detailed information on the trip, maps and accommodation turistkontor@odda.kommune.no
