Natural monuments in Odda

Trolltunga

9.7/10

Trolltunga is a piece of rock that stands horizontally out of the mountain above Skjeggedal in Odda, Norway.

To get to Trolltunga, which is Norwegian for "Troll's tongue", visitors needs to go to Odda, then to Skjeggedal via Tyssedal. Previously a trolley car transported visitors the first 950 meters above sea level during the summer. There are however both stairs and a path that will take you the first 950 meters, and from there marked hiking trails will take you the rest of the way.

There are cabins in the area owned by the Norwegian Trekking Association where it is possible to spend the night. The area opens up to the rest of Hardangervidda, and can be a starting point for a longer hike to for example Hårteigen.

One of the best hikes in Europe. Only the first part is hard, the rest isn't. Rewarding great views. Get ready for snow and ice, even in August.

A little bit too crowdy, but definitely worth visiting when in Norway!

Amazing site. Difficult to hike at the begining, later long and resulted longer than 11km cause we had to do bypass due to snow and mud. But worth it totally. One of the best experience ever.

Do a winter snowshoe with Trolltunga Active. You won't regret it.
