Join us on a unique Trolltunga hiking adventure in late autumn.Norwegian autumn brings darkness and a sudden end to the summer. The wind rushes through the trees. The waterfalls freeze. The mist looks enchanting as it caresses the mountainsides. This is the time when snowfall makes its entrance. Conditions are rawer, rougher and harder. Yet, late autumn nature in the Norwegian Mountains is sublime.This is the time when fairy tales are born.

We almost never cancel the classic tour due to weather. Weather conditions that makes us cancel the hike in advance could be storm combined with large amounts of heavy/cold rain and possibly a thunderstorm.

The via ferrata will be cancelled if there is a thunderstorm forecasted, or large amounts of rain.

The winter expedition might be cancelled if the weather is extremely cold and windy.

If the weather is bad, but not enough to cancel in advance you meet up as normal. The guide will inform the guests about the conditions on the mountain and ask if you still want to hike or move your booking to another day. The guide might also explain that there is a chance of not getting to Trolltunga due to the weather.

If Trolltunga Active cancel the hike, you will be refunded.

If you decide to hike and have to turn around there is no refund.

 If you choose not to hike and do not move the booking then there is no refund.

Last chance to book a tour is the evening before the hike at 17:59 (before 6pm). It might be possible to book after this, but that requires enough spots available. You can still show up at the tour meeting and see if there are any free spots.
