|Season (1 Mar 2023 - 20 May 2023)|
Experience an unique hike to Trolltunga in winter, accompanied by the best companion you can think of - your own personal husky.
Our polar guide, Moa Hundseid, is one of Norway’s most famous young adventurers and will share one of her many sledge dogs with you on the hike to Trolltunga and back.
Spring at Trolltunga is a unique experience with few or no other tourists in the mountains, crystal clear air and several meters of snow. This will truly be an adventure that you will never forget!
We meet up at P2 (parking lot 2) in Skjeggedal at 07:30. We will tell you about the hike and about the huskies and of course we will take some time to cuddle with the dogs and get to know them before we start. You will get all the equipment needed and help to take care of your husky for the hike to Trolltunga and back again. If you prefer hiking without a personal husky, just let us know in your booking. When we feel ready we will start our adventure through snow and ice to Trolltunga.
If the snow conditions allow us, we'll be able to drive up to Mågelitoppen (P3), which will save us 4 kilometers and 400 vertical meters each way! (this is not likely before May).
Along the way we will stop and serve lunch with coffee or hot chocolate and some local snacks. Make sure you register special food requirements in your booking (such as vegetarian or gluten intolerance).
During the hike we will make stops at our best places for taking photos, enjoy some snacks, cuddle with the dogs and learn about the surroundings.
We will be surrounded by beautiful nature the whole hike and when we arrive Trolltunga we will take a long break for photos and enjoy the beautiful view before we start our hike back to civilization.
Those who like hiking and want to enjoy the companionship of a nice and friendly sledge dog. Hiking with a personal husky will give you a welcome help in the ascents.

About Moa Hundseid:
Despite her relatively young age, Moa has done a number of exciting trips and expeditions. It started already as a one-year-old when Moa had to be carried into the cabin with her skis on, because she preferred to ski outside rather than being indoors. That's pretty much how it still is today.
Therefore, it is not so strange that she has chosen to live her life being mostly outdoors. She is a real adventurer and has worked as a polar guide for, among others, Børge Ousland Exploration, and now she works for Trolltunga Adventures.
Since Moa is mostly outdoors all year round you will most likely see her with tangled hair and tanned cheeks. Her faithful polar dogs dangling after her is another great way to recognise her.
Moa is a free soul who is looking for good vibes around the world. The whole world is her playground and it is both big and beautiful according to her. Moa´s greatest passion is high mountains and long ski trips.
Some of Moa´s previous adventures:
• Guide Greenland across for Børge Ousland Explorations, 2016
• Guide Northwest Passage, Canada for Børge Ousland Explorations, 2017
• Manaslu, Nepal 8164 m, 2017
• Mount Everest 8849 m, Nepal, 2018
The duration of the hike is around 10-12 hours and totally 27 kilometers. This hike requires a good physical condition.
