The meeting spot is in Trolltunga Active base at P2 parking in Skjeggedal where we will get you prepared for the awaiting adventure. Then we take the shuttle bus to P3 to save some time and energy (normally it is possible from June-September but also depends also on the conditions on the road). There is no need to hurry as this tour is about having “all the time in the world” to enjoy the vast landscape – numerous mountain lakes, steep rock faces of the valley Ringedalen and Folgefonna glacier in the distance. On our way, we will make few short stops to refresh ourselves and listen to the information about the area. Approximately 3km before Trolltunga, we stop in our camp to taste a cup of hot/cold beverages and some snacks. If you want you can leave your backpacks here, and then we will be ready to hike the last stretch.
When we arrive to the "Troll's toungue" most hikers are already heading down, so we will get to see this special place without crowds. Here we take pictures, explore the surroundings and simply enjoy our time. 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 start the hike back to the civilisation. Normal time to be back at the starting point is between 14pm and 15pm the second day.

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.
