I have a fear of heights but did it anyways. Makes for a great story and something that you have to do while in Norway! Met some friendly people along the way to help me along.

Amazing!! Me and my friends traveled in March 2018 and did this hike!! It is absolutely amazing! There was a lot of snow but the skies were cleared it was sunny and very nice. A bit slippery so if you are not very confortable with snow be careful. Bring food, a hot drink and gloves for sure!! We started the hike from the parking lot around 11:00am and by the time we were back it was about 5:00pm we spend a nice time at the cliff took some pictures and went back before sunset. A quick tip and an important one. Keep you eyes on the road always. Specially going down. The sun melts to top of the snow surfaces and it turns into ice. Sometimes “Black ice” on rocks which is hard to see. You can slip in a blink of an eye lol. Temperature was around 5C use light and warm enough clothes and bring an extra top just in case. Our food of choice was brown cheese, bread, chocolate and coffee. Anyways, have fun! And please! Respect the nature :) Jonathan G,

Beautiful stroll out the back of the town to a viewpoint over the harbour and the other mountains. Can continue down to the lake or stay at the top!

Amazing hike. Must do for a tourist. Locals aren't big on this hike but it was beautiful. I left the upper parking lot at 05:45 while still dark and used a headlamp. The trail was marked with cairns with a red T and there were glow sticks to help guide you in the dark. The hardest part for me was after the first hike up there is shear rock face that is pretty steep, not terrible, but it is made worse by the constant drizzle. Trekking poles would have made that part easier going up and down. The hike itself wasn't technical or very hard. I was slightly concerned on the way back when I saw people heading out that they were not appropriately dressed, i.e. jeans, tennis shoes, sandles, dresses. It was about 36F that day and it was a constant drizzle. I did catch a break when I arrived at the trolls tongue the clouds parted and I was able to get some amazing pics. I made it to the lookout around 09:45. On the way out I only really saw 4 people for most of the way out. I did run in to people that had obviously spent the night and were heading back when we were getting closer to the tongue. I made it to the parking lot by 14:00. I did not stop on the way out or the way back for a break except to catch my breath.

We hiked Galdhøpiggen in August 2017. The weather was beautiful with sunshine and not a cloud in the sky with little to no wind. The temperature was in the 50’s. Crossing the glazier took about an hour and was awesome. The hardest part was walking on the rocks. Many of them were loose so one has to be careful with the footing. The view was spectacular.

Stunning view. Love that place so much. I went there on early June. It was so good whether, not too cold and warm. And still see some snow a lot during the trail. Recommend!!!

Hiked up the first half with a headlamp, tented at the top for the night, then fished the hike to Kjeragbolten and back to the trail/restaurant parking lot in the morning. Going up the mountainsides and down into the valleys can take a lot out of you even on a shorter distance hike, but the views are immensely worth the trek (as life is ;]).

Out of towners visiting from the US but our airbnb host suggested this hike. Great views of the archipelagos. We parked at the school and eventually found the trail. We had to search a bit in the neighborhood. We hiked in the rain the 3rd week of August. Be warned, there was quite a bit of mud and tree roots that are veeeeery slippery when muddy and wet. I took a pretty decent fall to my knee from slipping. Wear your hiking boots if you have them, you could skirt by without if necessary but take it slow and be cautious. We also were surprised and kept feeling as we stopped at a ridge we were very close to the top but it kept going up and up. It’s a bit deceiving with the top being set back and somewhat more gradual. Quick and easy hike for some beautiful views!

First off, this hike is a hike of a lifetime. I did this hike in the 3rd week of August this year with my two siblings. My sister is quite afraid of heights, but she decided to brave it and come along. I read a lot on the internet about this hike before doing it. What I found said “experienced hikers only,” and I had a hard time figuring out what that meant. Do I need ropes and crampons? All jokes aside, if you hike on the kinda sorta regular basis and have a good pair of hiking shoes or boots, you’ll be fine. I live in Utah and felt prepared in decent shape. We were surprised how chilly it was, if in late summer definitely bring layers and plan for rain. We didn’t have rain gear, storm clouds circled us and just sprinkled but we got super lucky. Definitely plan for rain. By the time we were hiking the ridge we were freezing, wishing we had gloves and grateful we had hats. As mentioned by others the descent is the hardest part, joints and knees were really feeling it by the end and it felt like it wouldn’t end! My knees in particular were not happy. Since my sister is afraid of heights, we look up as much info as we could on the ridge line. Luckily my brother and I are not deathly afraid of heights. Most people said the ridge was scary with chains, the whole nine yards but in my personal opinion, there was one short section that felt narrow (maybe 20 yards, very short) and the rest was fine. The chains are there to keep you SAFE and by no means are there to let you cling on to life. The photos of the ridgeline look very narrow but two people can comfortably walk side by side during almost all of it. If you’ve been to Zion NP and have hiked angels landing, you won’t be afraid of the heights this hike has. Angels landing was much narrower, a bit scarier and more crowded. Sorry for the long winded post but I thought I’d pay it forward to anyone out there looking for the same info I wanted while planning my trip to Norway. Definitely take the one way bus from Andalsnes that leaves at 9:30 from the train station. All in all, an Incredible hike! Worth the aches and pains. Definitely will be a memory of a lifetime and is a wonderful highlight of our trip.

Great hike - would recommend only doing if there is adequate daylight for the return journey... Coming back in the dark is not advised!

2.10.2018 Norway itself it’s such a beautiful country! So much to see and enjoy! Hike was great! Definitely worth it! It was pretty easy! I am not an experienced hiker and we have done it 4h way up in the rain&snow then 3h down! Not many people, it’s out of season, have to be careful to not get lost as the signs are hard to see “hidden under the snow” Just get yourself warm waterproof clothes, something warm to drink and “time” to enjoy it 

Short but extremely steep climb to views of a town, beach, and harbor down below. Trail keeps going but we were running out of daylight and stopped at Nubben.

Easy trail along a saddle. Front half is all gradual gain along trails and boards, back half is a steeper scramble. Stunning views of a beautiful beach above the Arctic Circle.

We stumbled upon this hike while wandering around the neighborhood that our AirBnB was in. Perfect difficulty and an amazing 360 view of the area at the top. Bring shoes with good tread as it will be slippery in a lot of places. Highly highly recommend.

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 it was a great morning hike. We started early to beat the crowds and it was worth it. It was a beautiful view from the top and nice to spend some time at the top without huge crowds!

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.

Sun Sep 23 2018

Not very difficult. Highly recommend! Absolutely beautiful. Only thing I regret is not going all the way after the huts.. There’s a great view of the Seven Sisters waterfalls

Sun Sep 23 2018

Fu**ing insane. If you’re even a little bit scared of heights, do it anyway. Have some good friends with you to help. One missed step and you’re done! So worth it! I’d do it again no doubts. I can’t believe something like that is real. The views.. no words can describe it. Just do it
