Trolltunga, Odda

#1 of 9 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.

    All the labour, and made of it a lot, it's worth it because the show is continuous and wonderful!!! I'm glad we booked an escorted tour because the Trek is really long and tiring and doing it with someone experienced who can advise and follow is a godsend. You can, with the right equipment, camp, ask the guides where and how, know what to do and are experts in these mountains. You have to lug around a little bit of everything, the weather is very changeable, you pass from the hot sun in the cold and windy, in some places I found the snow, and we must consider at least a 12-hour walk and therefore enough food, water is not necessary because there are a lot of streams from which you can take. Personally the worst part was the return, tiredness is felt and the distance is significant. I'm coming by public transport to odda, very comfortable and very well served. Highly recommended but don't underestimate the path

    The place is quite demanding for tourists. However, be a ware of the fact that not everyone could climb this incredible mountain. Only an enthusiastic and a goal-oriented person could do it. I recomme...  more »
