How to get to Trolltunga?

Challenge yourself on the Classic Trolltunga hike during the Hardangerfjord in a nutshell & Rosendal tour.

Classic Trolltunga Hike

  • Hiking

Join in on an epic hiking trip with guide to the majestic Trolltunga - one of Norway's most spectacular sight.

The hike starts in Skjeggedal. The first 4 km, you will be transported with shuttle from Skjeggedal, up the 4 km road to Mågelitopp. From Mågelitopp you'll have a stunning view of the Folgefonna national park, before the trip continues on towards Tyssebotn.

In Tyssebotn you'll find giant marmites, deep holes in the mountain made by sand and stone rotating in the now drought Tyssestrengene waterfall. This was the world's fifth tallest waterfall, before the power station was built.

The hike ends at the trips highlight - Trolltunga. A memorable nature attraction, with a stunning view of the Ringedal lake and the Folgefonna glacier.

Plus, standing on the edge should add some butterflies to your tummy.
