Amazing views!! Pretty tough uphill portions but overall not too bad.

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.

amazing views!

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.

We started at 3:00 am to avoid crowds and we had a beautiful hike that included sunrise.

Amazing views. Very windy at the top. went out of season so it was very quiet. wonderful hike

One of the best views I’ve had at the end of a hike. Got to eat lunch dangling 1800 feet above the water.

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

Bucket list ✔️ Amazing hike we used a guide! Highly recommend and check weather May 16th 2018 cold at top! This was an epic! The pictures say it all!

This hike takes you back to the late 19th century and early 20th century when agriculture was still highly active in this strenuous mountainous terrain. Many of the Norwegian families that operated these farms fled to North America for an easier life. However, the Sinjarheim farm is still in operation by a local university. This hike allows you to experience this history along with breathtaking views. You will see waterfalls, cliffs, caves, and more.

This trail has a bit of a multiple personality disorder going on. The start of it is through a wooded area, which then turns into crossing a boggy bit of land, before finally ascending the mountain which has a bit of a rocky scramble at the top.

This trail is largely unmarked, and a bunch of footpaths go off in every direction at different points. I actually got lost after reach the top and made my way back down the wrong side of the mountain, where I had to cross a wire fence to get back to the main road.

At the start, you'll park alongside the main road - Google Maps has the area listed as Holandsmelen Parking. From there, you'll pass through a gate that makes it seem like someone's property, but that's the right path. The middle and end of this trail is rather exposed, so keep that in mind and don't forget your sunscreen.

This trail has a big payoff, though, with wonderful 360 degree views. Holandsmelen is a lone mountain in this area, so it offers a great view of all the surrounding flatlands, including a great view of some beautiful beaches.

Bunes Beach is very scenic and very isolated. To get here, you first have to take a ferry from Reine to Vindstad, and those only run twice a day (usually once in the morning for drop-off, and once in the afternoon for pick-up).

The trail is rather easy, with only a bit of steepness at the end, before the beach. The trail is well-marked, considering how isolated and lightly trafficked this is. It starts in the town of Vindstad, as soon as you get off the ferry. As you walk through the town, there will eventually be a sign that points you to the left and the real "trail" part of this trail starts. Most of it is at a mild incline, which kicks up a bit just before you reach the beach (though I wouldn't call this "steep"). Then a quick decline to get you onto the sand part of the beach. To get to the actual water, though, it's about another 10-15 minute walk. At the end, you end up on a very lovely white sand beach surrounded by glacier mountains (which can also be hiked, if you plan on camping overnight).

This is Norway, so it goes without saying that you can camp here. Most people just do this hike as a day trip, but there will be a few people who stay behind to hike the peaks alongside the beach (which offer great views themselves).

A short hike, but I wouldn't describe it as easy as there are areas of pretty steep incline. But once you make it to the top, the views are spectacular in pretty much all directions - especially over Svolvaer and the ocean.

I went at midnight, during the summer, to view the midnight sun.

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 .

Great hike. Make sure you take the stairs, we did not and got to portions where the trail just ended. The view at the top is amazing, but I would recommend getting up early to do it. I got up around 7:30 to do it. on the way down there were a ton of people, and with that many people and a narrow trail with steep drops off the side makes it a little difficult. I would also keep in mind to do this when it is dry. I did this the day after it rained and it was pretty slick at a few areas which made it a pretty tricky. Over all I would recommend doing it unless you have a fear of heights, and remember TAKE THE STAIRS!

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.

Fantastic hike. It is challenging and you need to be in decent shape. The view from the top is absolutely amazing. We took a Fjord cruise followed by the hike. It was cool to see the Fjord from the bottom and then the top. Make sure to actually wear shoes appropriate for hiking. There were a few tourists trying to do this hike in high heels. It was a sprained ankle waiting to happen.

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.

Strenuous hike with one of the most fantastic payoffs at the top. It ascends about 1500 feet over about half a mile, so it's steep! The locals will tell you the trail is closed while they are working on a set of stairs to make the climb a little safer, but you can still do the hike without them. The initial part is through some trees and over some slippery rocks. I did this hike after a few days of rain, and it wasn't easy initially! Lot's of mud and wet rocks. Boots are very much recommended, but that being said, my friend (who is not experienced at hiking) had his luggage lost and had to climb this in my Nike sneakers. Tough, but by no means impossible.

After you get out of the trees, it gets very steep. Be sure to watch for loose rocks that can trip you up and then be sent down the mountain. Please be vocal if you knock some loose! I almost got clocked by tumbling rocks because the cllimbers ahead of us didn't say anything.

We made it to the top after about an hour, and were rewarded with one of the best views I've ever seen. If you split off to the right, you go do a bit of a climb and end up about 50 feet higher. There is a path off to the left which also provides spectacular views. Be aware that if you are afraid of heights, this is a lot! But don't let it stop you. It's worth it.

Was overcast when I did this walk, so the views were not as good as I hoped. Was still a very enjoyable hike, and views would have stunning on a clear day.

The path up was relatively easy to find, with a big arrow near the E10 tunnel entrance. The first part of the track was not too steep but very muddy. The second part was very steep and slippery. But was worth it for the views, which are just incredible!
