Trolltunga

Trolltunga (The Troll’s Tongue) is a mountain cliff that hangs approx. 700 meters above the lake Ringedalsvannet in Skjeggedal. Trolltunga is one of the most spectacular scenic cliffs in Norway, and the feeling when going out on the tunga is an experience you will remember for the rest of your life!

The hike to Trolltunga starts at Skjeggedal and leads into the high mountains. It takes 10-12 hours (a total of 28 km) and the ascent is about 1200 m (3940 ft). There is a T-marked hiking trail from the parking lot in Skjeggedal to Trolltunga. Along the trail there are signs showing the remaining distance to Trolltunga.

This is a long and demanding trip. Consider carefully whether you are in good enough shape and have the right equipment before setting out. Sturdy hiking boots are recommended, bring warm and waterproof clothing, food, water, a map and compass.

There are 4G coverage with Telenor and emergency networks along the way.
All nature-based activities and the use of the information provided are at your own risk.
