Day 3: Trolltunga
People come from all over the world to experience Trolltunga, and today it's YOUR turn! The trol'ls tongue as it would be named in English, is a spectacular mountain formation situated 1,100 meters above sea level, and 700 meters above the lake of Ringedal. This is a long trek (8-10 hours), but it's both doable and worth it! Have time to relax at the top, enjoy the view, and take unforgettable photos on the plateau. Spend the night at a local hotel by the romantic fjords of Hardanger. This particular place inspired many Norwegian artists during the Romantic Era, and led to some of the most remarkable artwork ever to come out of Norway. In case of bad weather, your group will have the opportunity to swap day 3 and 4, and try for the best weather possible on Trolltunga.

When the weather allows, it is a spectacular view of the surrounding fjord landscape from the glacier. During this day, walk at a gentle pace, and take time to enjoy our company, and beautiful scenery.
