A hike to remember.

My girlfriend and I hiked Trolltunga during a recent trip to Norway. It’s safe to say that we will remember that hike for the rest of our lives. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to.

Pro tip: it might not be worth waiting 3 hours to get your picture on the ledge. Also, bring snacks.

Just completed this hike on October 7th, and hit snow as soon as we got to the last of the 17 switchbacks, which quickly turned to 1ft deep at stages as the snow continued to pump down all morning. Very beautiful views and magical hike in the snow to the famous Trolltunga. We were prepared for this weather so we had no problems, though in conditions any worse I could imagine it taking away from the overall enjoyment.

Difficulty : Moderate-Hard, the switchbacks are not as bad as they are made out to be as they are on a road, I can only assume due to the number of tourists, the majority of reviewers are not experienced hikers or a extra cautious in reviews, as once you have done a proper mountain hike, switchbacks on roads are easy no matter how steep. I would assume on a sunny summers day it would be a moderate hike for experienced hikers.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!! - especially at this time of year as we spoke to a guide in Odda who said that in the middle of summer up to 1000-1500 people do the hike per day, leading to an hour or 2 wait for photo’s!! We had no wait at Trolltunga.

Absolutely amazing hike! My partner and I did this yesterday, it was snowing on us almost the whole time! It was like a magical winter wonderland full of waterfalls!

We went in May and were hiking through snow for a decent portion of the hike. Don’t let the first kilometer scare you! It is pretty much climbing stairs for the whole first kilometer, but it gets way better. We took our time with several breaks and spent at least an hour at the top and it probably took us about 10 hours. There were incredible views along the way and the the view from the top makes the hike so worth it. It was definitely the best (and most difficult) hike I have ever done! I’d highly recommend it.

I'm a novice who probably does more hiking than your average tourist but wouldn't consider myself a hiker. I'm not in great shape but I'm stubborn.
This hike took me longer than most here (almost 10hrs of actual hiking) and almost two hours at the peak. We got there right as a group of 40 climbers arrived and at the peak time of the day. I also took the bus up (it only runs from 7a-2p so I had to hike down to the parking lot) to the upper parking lot. there's plenty of hike and I don't feel like I cheated myself out of anything. guess that's just a personal decision. 4km of switchbacks and dodging the busses isn't really something I feel like I needed to experience. there's still plenty of hauling. honestly, the first/last hour are the hardest. it's a steep climb at points and those are equally step coming back down.

The most stunning hike I’ve ever been on. Get there early, the trail is packed. Actually, even if you get there early the trail will still be packed, but it’s totally worth it for the views.

Aug 28, 2018. This was a fun and beautiful hike. I am a novice hiker in moderate shape and made it from the bottom trailhead to Trolltunga in three and a half hours. Don’t take the road up. It’s long and boring. I took the road down. There aren’t any switchbacks so your elevation gain is straight up in some parts which make for a difficult ascent. There are lots of places along the hike to camp or just sit and take in the sights. If you want a picture on Trolltunga itself be aware that there will be a line and the wait can be up to 2 hours depending on the time and day. Stay at the Airbnb (Linda) at the base of the hike. You can get an early start and beat the crowd.

Awesome hike and well worth the view at the end. Pack light unless your camping and start early. The view is better at sunrise and not as many people in the end. If you’re fast enough maybe you can beat my time of 2 1/2 hours from the bottom (not paying for the 4K bus ride) to the tongue! ENJOY

Good for a day trip

It's a beautiful and challenging trail to finish for beginners (it's moderate for experienced hikers, just long). The view at the end is simply amazing. Since it's an out and back hike, the end of trail is effectively the midpoint in your journey. I completed it last August with a friend who's new to hiking and we managed to finish it in about about 9 hours. There were a few streams on the way and we filled water from them. The views are gorgeous even before you reach the peak.

The hike is fairly flat in the beginning (once you've finished the upslope on the road) before it becomes very steep uphill and finally you walk from one mountain to another (slightly steep) in order to reach the end point after a stretch of flat land.

The views are worth the effort totally and I definitely recommend this hike.

Intermediate to difficult! Amazing views. Bring plenty of water and food!

Beautiful hike throughout. Completed back in August 2014. Wasn't as hard as it seemed just very long.

Great hike, amazing views as noted (both through-out and at the turning point). I went in early August (peak) but on a day after heavy rains and with light intermittent rain forecast. I arrived at the parking lot before 7am and the main lot was already into overflow (i.e. no chance at the upper lot). There is a shuttle now that can take you up the first switchback leg that looked to run frequently (although this seems like cheating yourself, if you're short on time it can cut 1.5hrs off the round trip). Well marked trail overall, although note that there are numerous bottlenecks if you're looking to fly through when there's traffic. Overall challenging but not too bad if you're used to mountain treks - I was against the weather (and am competitive) and did the loop without shuttle in 6hrs with a 30-min stop for the photo line-up at the turning point. Two guys did trail run it while I was there, but watch your ankles on the rocks!

Hands down one of the best trail I've ever done! Did it in early July 2015, it was mostly still covered in snow (making it harder but so much nicer!! Of course the end of the hike is great, but also the whole thing. I'd love to go back!
Also, not so hard to do. The hardest part is the uphill at the begining. My gf at the time wasn't exactly a hiker but she could do it. I think it took us about 11hrs, but snow was definetly a factor. It's worth going at weird time, because it gets crowded.

Solid 18miles. Totally doable but the uphills are hard. The most surprising thing was how long it took to get back. Same time as going out! 4:15 each way. And 1.5hrs at the top taking pics.

Sick balls

wonderful 28K hike
We started at 6:00AM and took the switchbacks up the gravel road.
We then proceeded to a well marked trail that was flat at first and then had a staircase vertical. The views were beautiful from this point to the devil's tongue. We found the rock a little icy so be careful. We then hiked across a few snow areas and up and down a bit. Hiking boats were a must and our poles were handy. The views were well worth the long hike and there were a few campers, but it was not crowded until we returned back down the trail. Bring food, but you will not need more than half liter water bottle because the mountain streams are crystal clear.

Did this hike with a guide on April 26 2018. We started at the lower parking lot taking the paved switchback road up halfway before strapping on snow shoes. The trail was completely snow covered the rest of the way up. This was a difficult hike with all the elevation changes but it was absolutely beautiful all the way through. Our group of 8 had the entire trail and the views at trolltunga to ourselves! The entire hike from start to finish took 12 hours with 2 breaks. Very rewarding hike, amazing view at the end and felt a huge sense of accomplishment- especially since we snowshoed the entire length. A must do hike when visiting Norway!

Amazing walk. The first couple of kilometres is vertical incline so gets the heart rate up but the views along the way make it worth while. Took us 8 hours in total and we were going at a steady to fast pace

Great hike. Well maintained trail, especially the beginning 2/3rds or so.
Great views. Moderate climb and length.
We do it in 9 hours round trip (including good lunch break) from the lower parking lot using the switchback road route on the bottom ascent.
The upper parking lot (limited spaces) was closed, but will open on 6/16/18. If you start from there, you are eliminating the majority of the elevation climb.

Incredible trail fit for those with moderate fitness/experience. One for the bucket list - this hike is breathtakingly scenic and a MUST if you are travelling Norway in summer months

Make sure to find the original trailhead since all the signs now point to the new road which is definitely not as fun as starting out with the proper climb :-) Hiked this one through the snow which was a lot of fun. Great views and of course the instagram turnaround point ;-)

Hike will take about 12 hours up and down. It's very grueling (the first stair climb is insane). However the view up top is worth it! Bring camping gear and camp on top if you can .

Starts off with steep stairs - but those are the only ones. We had rain and dry the whole time. Finished in 10 hours.

Overall, beautiful and totally worth it.
