Trolltunga Sunrise & Sunset trip

  • Hiking

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

The view from Trolltunga as the sun disappeares 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 creates an incredible and unique atmosphere. 

The hike starts in Skjeggedal at 11:00. The tour includes transport with shuttle from Skjeggedal, up the 4 km road to Mågelitopp. From Mågelitopp up the mountain side to Gryteskar you get spectacular views towards the Folgefonna glacier, before the trip continues towards Tyssebotn and Trolltunga.

Upon arrival at Trolltunga, the tents are set up and a delicious outdoor dinner is prepared. If the weather is on our side, we 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.
The perfect backdrop for a truly memorable holiday experience!
