Magical photos at Trolltunga

Trolltunga has become a very popular destination. Other hikers are likely to be joining you on the mountain, on the long trek to Norway’s most impressive rock formation. Fortunately, there is plenty of space – and it is easy to keep a safe physical distance, also at Trolltunga itself.

Naturally, everyone wants a photograph to document the magic moment – just themselves standing on Trolltunga, the outcrop that juts out 700 m above the lake below. That takes time! Saturdays are especially popular, and so is the first nice day after a spell of bad weather. On the busiest days, there may be a photo queue.

Please be patient! While you wait, we suggest you eat your lunch and talk to other hikers, while keeping a safe social distance. You may hear interesting stories, learn about the other great attractions in our region and throughout Norway, and even make new friends.

When it is your turn, be considerate! Please limit your photos to two poses. Someone nearby will gladly take your picture – just ask.

If you have a fear of heights and wish to avoid climbing down onto Trolltunga, or simply wish to avoid the photo queue, there is a simple solution: have someone take your photo with Trolltunga in the background. The perfect moment is when someone is just leaving the outcrop and Trolltunga is empty. (Some of the photos shown here were taken in this way.)

Stay safe! Always keep well away from the edge.
