I walked to to Trolltunga 2 days before but I thought this hike was a bit tougher (though it doesn't have quite the same pay-off!)-first because it is continuously uphill from the start-I think the ascent is 1800m. Second, when I did it in July...More

I never climbed mountains before, this was also my first long hike. I even had no shoes to do this. So we went a day before to the centre and bought some good shoes. When we started, we know it would be a long hike...More

Scaling Mount Skåla means climbing from sea level to 1848 meters above sea level in continous uphill, but you will be rewarded with excellent views, feeling great once you've managed the climb and worn out at the bottom. Drive towards Lodalen, and park at designated...More

A fantastic summit, for fit hikers used to ascents like Ben Nevis. Expect a cold windy summit and to cross snowfields early in the season. Physically demanding!

1848 Meters above sea level and you start at sea level. This is a demanding hike that requires good boots and clothes. Expect 4-6 h to the top and 3-4 h down. Keep in mind that weather changes very fast on the Norwegian westcoast. The...More

Okay, I'm not trying to call people out here, but this climb is severely overrated. Let me tell you the pros and cons because that is what people generally like: Pros: The hike is only 8 km (thank god). The first 4 kilometers are generally...More
