Glamping at Trolltunga

  • Hiking

Hike to Trolltunga and spend the night in a dome! Experience the sunset and sunrise at Trolltunga - a beautiful, intense, magical and truly unique nature experience.

The view from Trolltunga as the sun disappears into orange painted clouds behind the Folgefonna glacier is a fantastic and magical experience. The following morning, wake up to the warm sun with Trolltunga almost completely for yourself. The sunset and sunrise at Trolltunga create an incredible and unique atmosphere. 

Tour description

The tour starts in Skjeggedal where you meet your guide for the day. When the necessary instructions have been provided and poles handed out, you take the shuttle bus up the 4 km long road to Mågelitopp. Together with your guide, you hike up the mountainside to Gryteskar where you get spectacular views towards the Folgefonna glacier before the trip continues towards Tyssebotn and Trolltunga.

Upon arrival at Trolltunga, you are ready to check out the dome and a delicious outdoor dinner is prepared. The dome is located at a good distance from the main trail, which makes for a quiet and off the beaten track experience. If the weather is on our side, you prepare for the sunset. Please be aware that the west part of Norway is a rainy region, so not every evening will bring the sunset. But clouds and fog can also create special moments.

After a good night's sleep in the dome, you wake up the next morning to the sunset with Trolltunga almost completely to yourself. The perfect backdrop for a truly memorable holiday experience., come and see for yourself!
