Tips

Flott tur og fantastisk utsikt underveis. Det kan bli overfylt, men er verdt et besøk. Merk: det er midlertidige sesongstengninger i dette området. Ta kontakt med Trolltunga Trail Information-nettstedet før du besøker det. 1. juni – 30. september: Guidet fotturer anbefales. Erfarne turgåere kan gå på egenhånd. 1. oktober – 31. mai: Guidet fottur. Parkering: Kom til parkeringsplassen (P2) like før klokka 6 (det er da det er tomt). Det er 500 NOK å parkere her. P1 er ganske langt (nede ved Tyssedal, 40 km total tur) og skyttelbussen begynner ikke å kjøre til juni. Det høyere alternativet (P3) tar en stor del ut av turen, men veien åpnes ikke for biler før i juni.

*Trails are well-marked. It’s impossible to get lost even if you hike alone. It’s a mountain packed with tourists, so you won’t literally be alone. *It’s a 20km long hike from the main trailhead and back to P3. *You will take the same trail back to town. *To save time and your energy, it’s BEST to take the bus up to Odda-P2 and then P2 to P3 which is the main trailhead. Costs 450nok roundtrip, different bus operators. *Wear sturdy hiking boots. It saved me so much the entire hike. But had to change to sneakers going down. *Start hiking from the main trailhead before 8am. *Check the weather before you hike. *The first 2km and the last 2km to the top were the challenging parts. *The hike is for everyone up for adventure. But remember to prepare, wear the right gears, wear layers even if you hike during the summer, and wear sunscreen. *Enjoy the hike. Even if it’s very touristy during peak-seaon, it’s still worth it.

snow depths were between 0 and 1m. I did a two day one night. due to the storm 30m/s I chose to sleep in one of the safety huts. without the house I guess the tent would not have survived the night. snow shoes would have been a big help also.

Klare 5 Sterne (bei gutem Wetter). Wichtig erscheint mir: Hin- und zurück an einem Tag ist RICHTIG anstrengend. Wir haben, rechtgut trainiert, für eine Strecke 4 Std gebraucht. Auf der Strecke gibt es keinen Schatten, dafür sind bis zum Ziel, der Trolltunga, viele Gebirgsbäche vorhanden. Wer, wie wir, die Tour in zwei Tagen macht, findet um die Trolltunga genügend Plätze für sein Zelt.

Dopest hike I have ever done. Showstopper views along the way, and stepping out on that insane ledge was so damn cool. We did this hike in September and it was wet, slippery and soggy af. Dress in layers, cop some decent water resistant hiking pants—jeans will not cut it—and wear hiking boots. This is a physically and spiritually demanding hike, so start before 6 if possible to give yourself the best crack at banging it out.

Beautiful hike. We did the hike around midday 11-12 o’clock and reached the top at Trolltunga around 3’o clock with a cooking break in between. While we were cooking we had an amazing view over the lake. We camped right next to Trolltunga with a stunning view over Ringedalsvartet and hiked back down early in the morning.

Great hike - well worth it even if just for the scenery. We waited maybe 90 minutes to get the picture on the tongue, and we left at 7:10a. Cannot stress enough: two pictures and make it quick. The line backs up if you're greedy and it ruins the experience for everyone to wait 3+ hours for one photo.

The first kilometre was chill and relaxed, the second and third kilometres were really steep and it’s like walking up stairs! But after that it will be better and with these stunning views you will make it easily to Trolltunga! We did it in approximately 7h

Challenging hike but totally worth it. We loved it every minute of it. It took us almost 10 hours counting break for lunch at the top.
