Trolltunga Adventure in Norway
Time & Location
About the event
Join us in 2019 to visit one of the most iconic views in Norway – Trolltunga, the Troll’s tongue; situated 1100 metres above sea level, and 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet.
Experience both sunset and sunrise from our camp close to Trolltunga, with spectacular scenery of the Lake.
This trek is perfect for those who want to get as much time as possible at Trolltunga, to be there when the sun sets and have time alone looking down at the majestic valley.
Experience the quiet and the special light in the morning before the crowds come marching in. It`ll ensure you the perfect picture!
