Trolltunga Active | About us

 

Trolltunga Active, the Trolltunga experts have been the pioneers of putting Trolltunga on the map and making it accessible for adventure seeking travellers since 2008. We are situated in Odda/Skjeggedal, approx. three hours from Bergen. The company has been expanding ever since its inception and currently offers more than 12 different adventures in the surrounding of the attraction Trolltunga with a capacity of more than 200 guests per day

 

Being a local company with heritage in the area, we focus on sustainability for our breathtaking nature and offering great service and a wide variety of nature-based adventures in the area. We strive to offer high quality and personal nature experiences with an intense wow-factor. Our top priority is safety. Therefore you will find that all our guides are certified Nature guides by Scandinavian Universities or equivalent. We have extensive knowledge of the area and our activities.

 

Our professional nature guide team accounts to more than 30 educated persons which secure our delivery of tours. Our equipment is up to date, regularly checked and certificated.

It is our personal goal to present unique nature experiences that create lifetime memories. We believe that less than eight adventurers per guide will improve the interaction between the guests and the guide. Our vision to build teams, become good friends, and to help each other reaching our goal for the tour is a main reason for our success.

Our guides are natural born story tellers; a crucial part of our tours. They will share their knowledge on the local nature and wild life, Norwegian hiking and Outdoor tradition, how to behave in the nature and the contrasty story of Hardanger and Norway. Our proud traditions of cultivating our raw nature for food and fruits production. And not to forget, about Trolls and Vikings. 

 

We have vast local partner network throughout the region of the Fjords of Norway. You will find organized tours together with other peak guiding companies like Outdoorlife Norway that enables us to organize packages of several high end destinations like Preikestolen and Kjerag in combination with our Trolltunga Region. Tailor made activity packages is a strong part of our portfolio. 

 

We are the only expert company arranging expeditions to Trolltunga in the Winter season on a daily basis from February. Arranging adventures in the winter is challenging and demands expertise and extensive local experience which we are proud to hold. If the conditions demands it, we will postpone adventures for your safety. Please therefore always plan to stay a day longer in the area more than the actual hiking day to assure your chances that nature will play with you on your hike.
