It is possible to rent jackets, pants, boots and backpacks at the Trolltunga Active Base in Skjeggedal. Hiking poles and snowshoes are included in the price.

 

Yes. We rent out jackets, pants, backpacks, shoes, hiking poles, via ferrata equipment and bicycles.

Our guests have our priority and discounts, but it is also possible to rent without being on a guided tour.

 

We very rarely have weather severe enough to cancel during the peak part of the summer season. We consider cancelling if we have combined heavy rain and cold. We also cancel if severe thunderstorms are forecast.

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 or if we have dangerous avalanche conditons.

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 or given the oppertunity to reschedule to another day that still has places available.

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.

In the summer season (15th of June to 15th of September) there are public shuttle busses run from most hotels in Odda to Skjeggedal.

Trolltunga Public Shuttle Bus

Before 15th of June and after 15th of September Trolltunga Active provides transportation if you are staying at Trolltunga Hotel.

Otherwise, you can get there by taxi.
