Trolltunga Adventures have a beautiful campsite not far from Trolltunga, with stunning views. Here you'll find the original Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen), which was the main attraction in «the old days». It's a stunning cliff that's almost forgotten, and for us, it is as magical as the more famous Trolltunga. We'll prepare and serve traditional Norwegian dinner while you relax around the campfire while enjoying the beautiful scenery. We also invite all our guest to do an optional small hike for a freezing cold lake. It's magnificent when the weather permits it.
About the hike:
The hike starts at 11.30 at Skjeggedal parking lot, following the trail up to Gryteskar with great views of Folgefonna Glacier. On the way, we'll serve you a classic Norwegian mountain lunch. We should be at Trolltunga (Troll's tongue) around 17.00, depending on the pace.
At night we prepare our famous reindeer-stew, with something good to drink. After dinner, you can relax and enjoy the view were we will serve you hot tea/coffee or chocolate, and if the weather allows us we will have a campfire. If you want an extra good night sleep, we recommend a swim in our "secret" pond. It’s cold, but no one has regretted taking a dip!
We wake you up early the next morning for breakfast and coffee/tea. After breakfast, we walk back to Trolltunga before we start our way back to civilization. We should be back at the parking lot between 13:00-1500, depending on the weather and the pace of the group.
We'll provide all the equipment; Tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mat, food, coffee/tea. All you need is a backpack, warm clothes and some snacks for the second day.
