“I thought I was surely going to die.”
Safety personnel are usually present at the parking lot to help you make sure your outfit is adapted to the demanding hike. Despite this, local rescue crews yearly perform several operations. Amongst the more dramatic ones was the rescue of a mother who had tried to carry her one-year-old son in a child carrier. Both of them had symptoms of frostbites when they were found.
In the last years, the number of visitors to Trolltunga has been increasing significantly.
Please be advised that you can normally hike to Trolltunga from mid-May until mid-September, but not during winter.
