I would really recommend this hike even though it cost quite a bit at 950 NOK as it incorporates cycling,hiking and rock climbing via ferrata to reach Trolltunga. Think about the bike rental and harness equipment rental.
Started off with cycling on gravel road for about 7 km by the lake called Ringedalsvatnet with amazing views. Then about a 2 hour traditional hike among the woods, streams and boulders with a lunch break inbetween.
After which we started the most exciting part of the hike which was the via Ferrata vertical climb which surprisingly wasn't difficult for a first timer. Those with a fear of heights might find this very challenging but there's no better way to face your fear and overcome it. Trust me you will enjoy it and will feel immensely proud.
Our Swedish guide Lina was really nice and helpful. Safety first throughout the hike. I would also recommend a pair of gloves to protect your hands from blisters / rope burn. Our guide was very kind to lend me an extra pair of gloves which was very helpful in the climb. She was also our 'personal photographer' even going the extra to take great pictures from a ledge below.
It wasn't an easy hike, in total a 10 hour return hike but was absolutely worth it once you reach the top.
Bring packed lunch and a 1 litre bottle of water. You can always refill with fresh melting glacier water at the many streams along the hike.
Gloves for the climb.
Sturdy hiking shoes for good grip (Not sports/running shoes)
Dont even give a second thought , just go for it ! You wont regret it !
