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 one of the most spectacular scenic cliffs in Norway. Trolltunga is situated about 1100 meters above sea level, hovering 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet. The view is breathtaking. The hike starts in Skjeggedal and goes through the high mountains, takes 10-12 hours (23 km in total to Trolltunga and return) and the ascent is about 1000 meters. It is a long and demanding hike. The trail is marked from the parking lot in Skjeggedal to Trolltunga. Along the trail there are signs showing the distance left to Trolltunga. Consider carefully whether you are in good enough shape and have the right equipment before setting out. There is partly mobile phone coverage (Telenor) along the route. The hike is usually possible to do from mid-June, depending on when the snow melts in the mountains. Normally one can hike to Trolltunga until mid-September. WARNING - DO NOT HIKE TO TROLLTUNGA IN WINTERTIME. From March  you can join guided snowshoe hikes with Trolltunga Active.

All nature based activities are at your own risk. You will need sturdy hiking boots, bring extra warm clothing, rainwear and be prepared for bad weather. Bring map and compass, plenty to eat and drink, a torch and a simple first aid kit. Weather in the high mountains can change quickly - check the latest weather forecast before going to Trolltunga. Do NOT hike to Trolltunga in strong wind, heavy rain or in foggy weather. It is always colder in the mountains than down by the fjord. Respect the nature. Every year there are search and rescue operations for hikers in serious trouble. Prepare well and be a responsible and safe hiker. Start early in the morning. Norway is far north, meaning daylight is short from September and nights are very cold. We recommend starting at latest 8:00 in the morning.

If you want to stay overnight in the mountain area around Trolltunga you have to bring your own tent.

Depending on snow and weather conditions, the season will vary from year to year. 15 June-15 September Recommended season (average year). 16 September-15 October Recommmend with guide. 16 October-3 Mars NOT recommended, highly dangerous. 4 Mars-14 June  Recommmend with guide (snowshoes).
