Trolltunga

Stunning Hanging Cliff

One of the most photographed pieces of rock in the world, is Norway’s spectacular cliff rock jutting horizontally out from the mountain above Lake Ringedalsvatnet.

Trolltunga, (translated ‘the trolls tongue’) is an awe-inspiring cliff rock formation which extends horizontally out of the mountain above Skjeggedal. It is situated about 1,100 metres above sea level in Ullensvang Municipality in Vestland county, Norway, and has become a major tourist attraction for the region.

The attraction is part of the Precambrian bedrock that was formed thousands of years ago during the ice age when the edges of the glacier reached the cliff. The water from the glacier froze in the crevices of the mountain and eventually broke off large, angular blocks, which were later carried away with the glacier.

Since its discovery, Trolltunga has been regarded as one of the best hikes in the world, with breathtaking views. The hike is via a trail which starts from the village of Skjeggedal and passes through a range of impressive fjords, awe-inspiring glaciers, spectacular blue lakes, and through incredible scenery of the Norwegian mountains.
