Trolltunga is the most spectacular rock formation in Norway. At 1180 meters above sea level, is lies about 700 meters above the lake Ringedalsvatnet. From the top, you have a fantastic view. The hike to Trolltunga starts in Skjeggedal and leads through the high mountains.

Trolltunga is the most spectacular rock formation in Norway, hovering 700 metres above Ringedalsvatnet lake. The hike through high-mountain terrain up to Trolltunga is long and demanding, but you are rewarded with truly breathtaking views!

During the summer, experienced hikers may hike on their own. If you start from the P2 parking in Skjeggedal, you should allow 8–12 hours for the 27-km round-trip hike to Trolltunga. You can also start from P3 Mågelitopp, allowing 7–10 hours for the 20-km round-trip hike.

There are shuttle buses between Odda, P1 Tyssedal and P2 Skjeggedal. If you prefer to start your hike from the uppermost parking, P3 Mågelitopp, an additional shuttle bus from P2 Skjeggedal will take you there.

The trail to Trolltunga is excellent and well-marked, with signs that tell you the distance covered and remaining. Most of the route has mobile phone reception.

Start early in the morning. The weather can change abruptly, and it is always colder on the mountains than down by the fjord. Check the weather forecast before starting. You need to be in good shape and properly equipped for the Trolltunga hike. Bring warm clothes, a change of clothing, and plenty of food and drink.

We recommend hiking with a guide, especially if your mountain hiking experience is limited. Trolltunga Active and Trolltunga Adventures offer day excursions as well as hikes with an overnight stay in their mountain camp. You are ensured a safe and memorable experience. Do you want a more challenging adventure? The Trolltunga Via Ferrata combines regular hiking, cycling and rock climbing!

In June through September, experienced hikers can hike on their own. From October to May we recommend guided hiking only. During the winter, guided snowshoe hikes are offered.

How do I get to Trolltunga?

Trolltunga is situated in Skjeggedal by Tyssedal, near the town of Odda in Hardanger. To reach the trailhead for your hike, you can drive or take the shuttle bus.
