Le t me do the intro pretty quick: Trolltunga hike is one of the most famous path in Norway. It is circa 4 hours drive from Oslo. Once you get at the parking area then you have to start walking and walking and walking, basically 8 hours hike gaining 1200 meters. It is a medium difficulty path, nothing to climb, but walking uphill all way long with a 10 kgs backpack and melting snow is not that nice and easy.
The views you get throughout the hike are GREAT and when you actually get to the troll’s tongue, at that very point you forget all the pain.
Tips for the hike:
- Be ready for any kind of weather, from -10 and snow to 20 and sun.
- When you reach Trolltunga you can camp there.
- Water is not needed, fresh water is everywhere and it’s delicious.
- You can see the Lemmings.(Big hamsters that live just in Nordic countries)
