Inspirock Rating:
4.9/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
Concealed deep within a fjord sits Trolltunga, a scenic cliff and one of Norway's most notable hiking destinations. The slender rocky plateau juts out about 1,100 m (3,610 ft) above sea level, hovering above the lake below. The full hike takes up to ten hours and traverses steep mountain ridges. The route takes you past waterfalls, glacial potholes, lush vegetation, and a dam. You can prolong your stay by bringing a tent to camp, but be aware that the weather can change quickly. Wear sturdy hiking shoes and bring extra clothing, a map, a compass, and plenty of food and water. Cell phone service is not available along the route.

  • Before trip to Trolltunga I googled that aftre first 2 km it was easy. It's not true. All the 11 km you will be going up and down. Snow will be everywhere in October on your way there and mud when you...  read more »

  • This trip one can take throughout the year both with and without a guide. We went 9. April and got the mountain trip. The climb up to the first top, we went with skis attached to the backpack. As we started early, it was still hard snow. When we arrived at the top on the skis we strapped us and went in the "powder" with brilliant sunshine, bright blue skies and the world's most beautiful surroundings. We did not want the tour to end and took breaks to enjoy. The trip back was almost surreal, where we had the mountain entirely for ourselves and ran in untouched powder. Simply indescribable.

  • This is a remarkable and breathe taking hike. The first 2 kms are the most challenging as most of the elevation gain is here. Once you make it through this portion the rest of the day should be fine. Waterproof hiking shoes are very helpful as there are portions of the hike you'll be navigating long me stretches. Also be sure to bring enough food to keep you going as it can be a long day. Lastly, water isn't too much of a concern as you'll cross many steadily flowing ice melts. Good luck and have a wonderful time.
  • great sight! but long and exhausting hike! make sure to wear water tight shoes. and count at least 30min queuing before you can take your picture. if you can, bring some cold beers up with you for a celebration toast once you reach the top ;)
  • very long hike, but amazing view at the end. 13+ miles. make sure to wear pants and hiking boots if going earlier than july due to the snow left over from winter. pack lots of snacks. water from the stream is drinkable, very fresh!
  • Exceptional views and scenery. This must-do trek will be break you if you're not prepared though so bring the right gear. 22kms, with 750m of altitude in the first kilometer - gets somewhat easier after. Expect to cross snow and mud well into July. Not allowed to do on your own for safety reasons from Aug 15 to Jun 15. Amazing
  • Long trail with a steep beginning, but totally worth it. If you don't walk to slowly it can be done in 3,5 hours to it, and 3 hours back.
