Drop by the Trolltunga Active base at P2 parking in Skjeggedal and contact one of our guides working in the shop. He/she will prepare you for the awaiting adventure with necessary information, answer questions if you have, and hand out your dinner and liner to bring to the mountain.
At our base we have a store where you can rent gear that you might need for the hike, windjacket/pants, hikingboots, backpack. And buy other hikinggear like hat, sunglasses, socks..
You choose yourself if you want to start the hike from P2 or take the shuttle bus up to P3 (shuttle is not included in the tour), tickets can be booked here. The hike normally takes between 4-8 hours up to the camp for hikers doing the trail on their own. Make sure you take your time and enjoy the stunning views. It is up to you if you want to go straight to Trolltunga or drop by the camp on the way there.
Its also possible to climb the Trolltunga Via Ferrata and stay at the camp. The via ferrata is a more adventures access to Trolltunga. This can be arranged either by joining the guided daytour Trolltunga Via Ferrata Or if you are an experienced via ferrata climber you can book a ticket to climb the via ferrata on your own. These tours you must book seperate, are extras to the overnight package.
When you arrive to the camp you will be welcomed by one of the Trolltunga Active guides. The guide will show you around, and is available in camp for questions and stories during your stay. Between 6-9pm the guide will prepare and serve your dinner.
The accommodation in the dome is shared with other experienced hikers, and it is important to respect each other. Some might go to Trolltunga for sunset, some may go for the sunrise. To make sure everyone get a good night sleep we want it to be quiet in camp from 11pm-6am.
After a good sleep in the dome, you wake up to a new memorable day in the mountain. The guide have prepared breakfast, that is served between 7-9am.

Even though you are visiting Norway in the summer, be aware that the weather conditions are highly unpredictable. They can change from minute to minute. Temperature can be deceiving as the wind plays an important role in how cold it feels. You might start your hike with summer temperatures in the valley and hike up the mountains where there are still big patches of snow. On rainy days low temperatures and cold winds can make the hike quite challenging, even in summer. On a beautiful day sunny day, you need to keep in mind, that you are very exposed on the mountain, make sure you prepare for hours out in the sun and stay hydrated.
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.
If rain and low temperatures are forecasted bring also:
Please make sure to leave enough space in your backpack for a sleeping bag liner and your dinner.
You can rent certain pieces of equipment on site: rain pants and jackets, hiking boots, backpacks.
There are two Arctic Dome glamping tents available in the camp for experienced hikers. Each Dome has a capacity 8 persons.
Please note: There is a drop-toilet available outside the dome tents. The glamping tents possess very basic facilities, please keep in mind that we operate in a very remote area that is inaccessible. Even though we provide different ways to keep you warm, you are still accommodated in tents which offer shelter and protect you from the elements but do not preserve heat for very long. There are no shower facilities and no electricity.
