Shooting right off the side of a mountain, 700 meters above ground, Trolltunga in Norway is one of the most photographed pieces of rock in the world. You might recognize it from motivational quote memes, or that really adventurous friend’s social media feeds. Now, we take you through the many faces of this epic cliff.
Trolltunga translates to ‘Troll Tongue’ in Norwegian.
An apt name to describe the shape of the rock.
But the hike to Trolltunga starts at the fairytale Ringedalsvatnet lake…
Near the tiny town of Odda…
Perched on the side of a fjord.
Getting there means a 10-hour hike…
Through the incredible scenery of the Norwegian mountains.
But once you’ve made it to the top…
That legendary piece of ten thousand-year-old rock is unforgettable.
We guarantee it’ll make you feel tiny in the vastness of the landscape.
Maybe that’s not such a bad thing?
Would you dare take a picture…
Or jump up in joy?
Still not convinced?
Sure, there may be a little queue to take your photo, like anywhere.
But this picture really is worth a thousand experiences.
In winter, the trail to Trolltunga is closed for safety reasons. It still looks pretty incredible.
But whether you visit the Troll’s Tongue in winter, spring or summer…
With or without a commemorative selfie…

It’s bound to be one hell of a view.
And you might as well stay for the night.
