Yay! I'm so excited to check off another awesome bucket list goal! Trolltunga hike in Norway! I've seen this place all over the internet, and discovered it was in here in Europe, so I had to go a little out of my way to do it! It's now one of my favorite places on earth <3
I learned that it is a 12-14 km hike (each way, so 24-28km round trip), and takes approximately 10-14 hours. (I made it to the top in 3.5 hours and even faster on the way down, but I spent many hours at the top enjoying the view ;-) )
All of my hiking gear is in Alaska, but my amazing Norwegian cousin decided that my duct taped motorcycle boots were not good enough for hiking, so he bought me a great new pair of hiking boots, socks and a rain coat too! <3 The shoes were perfect, super safe and comfy! :-) (Thanks Kjell!) Everything I have read about this hike claims that it is an expert and dangerous hiking trail, which I can understand for inexperienced hikers, but for us crazy Alaskans, I would say it is a beginner/intermediate easy day hike :-) The trail up there actually looks almost identical to many hikes in Alaska too! Very windy along the way, but nothing I wasn't prepared for. I actually over-packed because of all the warnings I read about prior to the hike... The hardest part was that I hiked the whole way up carrying all of my heavy motorcycle gear in my backpack just so I could take a cool photo wearing it at the top, haha... So happy I did!
And a special thanks to all the people who helped take photos for me, it would have been impossible to get these cool shots on my own!
