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.

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.

Fantastic! Challenging to do all in one day. Start early and know the daylight hours. The opening stair climb is the hardest part but, of course it also happens at the end when your legs are shot. Rain can make it dangerous. The first glimpse of the lake was life changing. Well worth the trip.

This is a normal Sunday hike for locals from the Fyllingsdalen area. Allow about 2 hours up and back. Beautiful 360 degree view from the North Sea to the mountains of the "vidda" (mountain plateau) behind mount Ulriken. Be careful to choose the same path on the way back, or you will end up on the opposite side of the mountain.

Get there as soon as the parking lot opens if you want to avoid a pointless extra 30-45 minutes of climbing. I've done this one twice now, and it's spectacular. Make sure to bring plenty of food and water, and PICK UP YOUR TRASH. This place can be very crowded on weekends or in the summer, and a lot of the people leave litter. It ruins the magic a little. But nothing can detract from the image of the Troll's Tongue. It's unparalleled! Wait your turn in line and do your best pose for your next profile picture. Expect this one to take all day. Due to Norway's generous camping laws, you can set up a tent at the end of the trail and wake up in the morning for some fantastic views.

Went Oct 9th after the first snow of the year so everything was covered in snow and ice which added some time and difficulty, but overall it was great. Beautiful day. Worth the views. I thought KJERAG was more difficult, but trolltunga is just so dang long! So so long. Took 11 hours in the snow but I'm sure it's great in the summer. It's pretty well marked and if you need a guide for this hike, you honestly shouldn't be doing it (Because of weather or your skill set) but that's my humble opinion.

Not technically challenging. There is however a good amount of elevation change over s rather short distance. Enjoyable hike no matter how you cut it.

Absolutely stunning. We flew to Norway for this one, and it didn't disappoint. Parking at the new lot up the hill shaves a few kilometers and is totally worthwhile. Start VERY early, as lines form for photos during the summer. We only waited 10-15 minutes in September, but we heard stories of 4+ hour waits in August. Check out the unmarked waterfall below the dam too. If you are an experienced hiker and you start early, you can finish this hike in six hours. We started at 6:30am, spent an hour at the top, and finished before 2pm.

It is a difficult hike, but really a great experience. We camp on the top unfortunately we hiked with bad weather it was no possible to see the famous sight. But next time I'll do it

Challenging hike offering incredible sights. Hiked July 12th, 10 hours total. Departed at 4am and arrived to the tongue at 9am. Found 12 people at the tongue waiting in line and waited 15 minutes total.

On/off light rain and tons of melt led to a super muddy trek. Don't underestimate it as a walk through the park. Wear appropriate gear and pack light. A small water bottle is enough as you can refill from the many streams.

Great trail with a lake and sheep! easy to take the train up or down and walk the other. Can be done in an hour or longer.

kudos to the woman who works in the gift shop at the top. she gave me tampons out of her own purse since I was having a slight emergency. thanks girl!

A fairly straightforward hike, as there are no trees and you can see your destination (the glacier) the entire time. The climb is quite shallow for most of the way, with several short periods of steep ascents. Lots of rocky terrain and muddy/boggy ground. At the destination, glacial melt creates deep mud, so keep an eye on your footing as you approach the ice. Overall a beautiful, scenic hike.
