Trolltunga Winter Snowshoe Hike
Trolltunga is one of Norway’s most popular hikes for good reason. It is an incredibly scenic hike, ending at the Troll’s tongue, a thin sliver of rock perfect for creative photographs. This is definitely a hike to add to your bucket list. I will be able to pick you up by car in Voss, Granvin, Ulvik or Odda, before we continue on to Skjeggedal where our hike will begin. When arriving I will go through safety and the equipment needed. In late spring and winter season I recommend going early in the morning (no later than 07) to get the most out of the short (but beautiful) daylight. The hike from Skjeggedal to Trolltunga is a 28km total roundtrip (14km each way), about 850m ascent and we will spend between 9-12 hours. From Skjeggedal we follow the path to Mågelitopp and then switch to snowshoes (depending the snow conditions) and continue up the mountain side to Gryteskar where we get an amazing view towards the Folgefonna glacier. The trip continues towards Tyssebotn and finally Trolltunga! During the course of the walk we'll have several breaks to rest and eat, and of course to enjoy the view! You will need to bring your own food for a whole day, good clothes and hiking boots.
