#1 of 14 in Things to do in Odda
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.

  • Trolltunga Active meet with everyone scheduled in the group hike the night before to answer any questions and told us what to bring to be prepared. They had a variety of items to purchase at the store...  more »
  • It was a very cool "miniputeshestie" and such that for life always remember) incredible beauty around-the feeling that you are on another planet. We went with her husband, the weather was very nice and sunny. Took the jackets, long sleeve sweatshirts, socks. I even thin Cap-Balaklava was and gloves. It was sunny and the first kilometer was even hot, then come out from the forest and blows out the wind. And at first it seemed like the kind of thing tashhish in vain until we went through about 3 km. There we saw snow:-))) and on it was more he podtaival and on the return journey, the trail was heavily blurred places ever crawl or walk on water. Generally we walked long enough-to 17:00 got to the language. And 18:00 moved back. Back was poprohladnee to go and already gloves and hat handy. Boots (with membrane) soaked through and through, so that in the end has already been spit-go puddle/snow or anywhere .... Generally 2 pairs of good shoes will make the Trek) yet be sure to smudge his face and exposed body sunscreen and take it with you. Better wear closed clothes, otherwise you won't notice how obgorish. The first (or last) km. the most sophisticated back so generally you hear how joints creak ... knees especially)))) for parking the car we returned to 23:00 and it was still light (mid-June), but better to go before 10 am and return early.

  • The best trekking in my life :) They are like 14 km from the starting point and you can see all stations on the route. It takes between 8-10 h get to trolltunga same if you carry weight as we (approx 15 kg). It was summer, but at night it is cold if you decide to camp. The route is signposted and just enjoy the road!

  • We were first time hikers and it took us 5-6hrs to reach to the rock! Parking site can be dubious as there are 2 locations, one at the top but you have to be there super early and pay a premium. Difficult and long terrain especially when one can expect 4 seasons in one day! However, it was by far the best experience in nature we have had! Be well prepared, take your trash with you and enjoy!
  • Long grueling hike but well worth it to get to Trolltunga. We did a guided hike and it was a good 10 hour day. The most difficult part of the route is the beginning where it is a very steep hike but after that you mostly encounter what the Norwegians call "hills." Coming from Louisiana it was still difficult because you are on a timeline to finish but the view at Trolltunga is spectacular. Still one of the best views I've ever witnessed
  • The craziest hike ever done. So raw so powerful. Bring camping gear and getting ready to be changed forever. Super challenging but super worth it.
  • A long but rewarding day-walk, culminating in stunning views at the “troll’s tongue” that juts out 700m above a lake. The track is easy to follow. Track notes: hikingtheworld.blog/2016/10/04/trolltunga/
  • One of the most breathtaking view I've ever see in my life. The track is very easy for all! But too many people :D
