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.

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

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

This is quite an easy summer hike. It starts off with a recently constructed path of steps all the way to the Brekkefossen viewpoint. Next follows a little bit more challenging steep forrest path. If it’s rainy, there is a lot of water running down the path. You may encounter several herds of sheep on your way, but the animals are usually really shy. Next part of trek is physically far less demanding, but since the trail goes through swamps you should bring some good waterproof gear. It is possible to avoid this by leaving the trail and walking around. The last part requires you to step over the stream and a little bit of steep walk all the way up to the lake. Keep an eye on red “T” markings and you will find your way up.

Great views along the whole trail.

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.

On the 4th of September I hiked Preikestolen fot the 2nd time. I took my rest during the walk and enjoyed the sun I did hill trail and had a perfect panorama over the platform and the fjord. As I knew what was coming it was more easy than the first time.

Today the weatherforcast was some rain nd wind. At higher levels it was sometimes cold and slippery Near the boulder te rain was gone and I could step upon it. The hike back was sometimes more difficult than the way to the boulder.
Also a nice moment to meet other hikers.

Great trail. Rocky trail requires good hiking boots. My stats are 5.2 miles and 1200+ feet elevation.

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.

Coolest view of Norway ever, and we road tripped through Stavanger, Bergen, Flåm, Ålesund, and Oslo!!

Easy hike up - a little tough going down as it is mostly rock stairs. Very touristy and crowded but the top is beautiful. If it’s foggy when you reach the top, sit and wait because the fog comes and goes and you won’t want to miss the view.

Easy hike with amazing views. Getting to walk under the waterfall is an incredible feeling.

Awesome hike. Weather was a little wet. Bring 2 pairs of gloves. One to get wet and climb with and one to warm up your frozen fingers lol

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

Amazing views! Well worth the effort.

Nice hike, easily accessible from Gramstad, Sandnes. Great View from the top. The hike is often done as a roundtrip together with Mattirudlå as the first peak.

The ridge and views are outstanding... second to none. but do NOT underestimate this hike. we did the optional extra peak taking this to 13.total Km and it took us 8 hours! we are fit and experienced hikers! the ridge requires scrambling and a head for heights and the last 2km are essentially a long staircase straight down a cliff -excruciating by the end! But, the view from the ridge.... unbeatable. (and we hiked half it in the pouring rain with no visibility)

btw get the morning bus to the start of the hike! leaves 9 30 am from andalsnes train station

Very beautiful landscape. The scenery is just amazing on sunny days. Not very hard in my opinion.

If you are planing to take a trip to Norway (Reine) for this hike, please check with the local office since they just started construction on this road and the entrance is closed to the public. We were told by the construction crew the just started the project yesterday (8/15/18) and will continue for the next 5 weeks. So your math and plan accordingly.
We found a different place hike (Mølnarodden) not as nice but with great views of the city as well. Look up for lake Solbjørnvatnet and make your way up. Highly recommend

Quite a hard walk to the top and even harder downhill. Very stony path to walk.
