Trolltunga looks especially majestic when it is covered by snow!

During the winter, the mountain is pristine and delightfully uncrowded. Granted, the challenging conditions and sudden weather changes call for good preparation and extreme caution. Professional experienced guides will make sure you have a safe and memorable adventure.

On the rocky trail, slick ice may be hidden just beneath the snow. Fortunately, your guide provides crampons or snowshoes. Days are much shorter in the winter; that’s why everyone has a headlamp. We take our time and stay on the trail. Snow and fog may make it difficult to see the trail-markers and cairns, even with the help of a GPS or map and compass. Just in case, we’ve brought emergency bivouac shelters. In the winter, the mountains really do demand experience.

You should hike only with a guide!
