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

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
