This is a combination of our two most spectacular tours. The Via Ferrata is undoubtedly the coolest and extraordinary way to reach Trolltunga. Yet if you do not want to leave the mountains at their best, you can make one of the spacious glamping tents your home for the night! The dome tent surprises you with its comfortable facilities and see-through ceiling. Only here you can enjoy a dinner with such a view while listening to sounds of the Norwegian nature.

About the activity

You will meet your guide at P2 parking in Skjeggedal. Once ready, we start one hour long walk along a lake. Then 1 km long but steep path takes you to the start of the Via Ferrata. Here we take a break to refresh ourselves and go through the safety instructions. Now the climb starts and the higher you get, the nicer the views are! Underneath, you see the blue lake, the valley – Ringedalen and the Folgefonna Glacier in the distance. After approximately 2 hours of climbing and short walk, we find the arctic domes waiting for us. There we enjoy a cup of hot/cold beverages before we hike the last stretch to our destination. By the time we arrive to Trolltunga most visitors are heading down already, and you have time to enjoy the special view point more in quiet.

Even though the Norwegian summer days feel almost endless, we will head back to the dome where a delicious dinner is waiting for you. Then it is up to you if you choose to enjoy conversations with each other, play games, read Norwegian stories or just observe the colours of the evening skies.

After a good sleep in the dome, you wake up to a new morning. You can take second visit to Trolltunga, while your guide prepares the breakfast in the tent OR you can sleep in and wake up to the smell of the fresh brewed coffee. After enjoying breakfast, we pack our stuff together and follow the tourist trail back to the civilisation. Normal time to be back at the starting point is between 14pm and 15pm the second day.

Weather

Conditions in the mountains can be unpredictable and change fast. Temperature can be deceiving as the wind plays an important role. Also think about the effects of sun, rain and snow conditions. Climbing the Via Ferrata, we usually move slower than if we hike, it is therefore a bigger challenge to stay warm during cold and wet days – especially on the hands. Every person’s perception is different, so make sure you bring clothes according to your personal needs.

A general thumb rule is: check the weather forecast, prepare for the worst conditions but do not overload your backpack, weight matters greatly when it’s about saving energy. Use the onion look: layers that can easily be taken on and off.  

We do not cancel tours due to bad weather. The only times we cancel is when the bad weather becomes dangerous weather. We will inform you in case of cancellation. Please read our cancellation policies for more information.

What to bring
  • Food for 2 lunches and additional snacks (e.g. sandwiches, nuts, chocolate)

  • Spare socks
  • Cap or hat

  • Warm mid layer
