Trolltunga

Trolltunga is one of the most spectacular highlights in Norway.

Trolltunga is one of the most visited and famous natural attractions to experience in Norway. Norway has a lot to offer concerning natural attractions and only nature itself can create something so special as Trolltunga, which is a small rock, that struts horizontally out from a cliff 700 metres above the Lake Ringedal in Skjeggedal.


What is Trolltunga

Trolltunga translated to “Troll’s Tongue was formed about 10,000 years ago from glacier erosion. You can still see glaciers on the mountaintops and take guided tours here. Along the way, you’ll find gorgeous blue lakes, towering fjords and impressive scenery that no picture can accurately describe. 

 
Hiking to Trolltunga

Trolltunga is a top hiking destination, where the view is breathtaking about 1100 metres above the sea level and in general Norway is a great hiking destination.

The full Trolltunga hike takes 10-12 hours and goes through high mountains, and the ascent is about 900 metres. The hike is 23 km in total and starts in Skjeggedal. From mid-June to mid-September it is usually possible to hike here, but it depends on when the snow melts in the mountains. It is important to plan the hike carefully and start early in the day.

The local tourist information in Odda provides the best advice. They will supply you with information, maps, and guidance on weather conditions. The weather in Norway can change fast especially in the mountains.

It is recommendable to take an organised hiking tour with one of the local tour operators.
