Trolltunga, Norway
Thinking of the most striking views in Norway, it's impossible to skip scenic Trolltunga, one of the most breathtaking cliffs in Scandinavia. Trolltunga Norway is set 1100 metres above the sea and 700 metres above the untouched lake Ringedalsvatnet. It's not hard to imagine that the view is just gorgeous and definitely worth the travel.

As for the name, Trolltunga translates as a "troll tongue" and it's believed that the cliff got its name from a troll who didn't turn into stone when the sun shined at him, as the legends say.

In reality, Trolltunga Norway represents an ancient formation that appeared due to the glacier erosion about 10 000 years ago. Trolltunga is located 17 km from the municipality of Odda in Hordaland county and the hiking trail to it is quite a challenging one.

To get to the cliff, a traveler should climb about 900 meters. However, the risky ascent is nothing in comparison with majestic landscapes you are going to see.

The best season to explore Trolltunga, Norway by hiking is from mid-June to mid-September, depending on the snow melting in the spring season. As for the guided trips with snowshoes or skis, the top season starts in March.
