The cliff Trolltunga is part of the precambrian bedrock and was formed during the ice age, approximately 10,000 years ago, when the edges of the glacier reached the cliff. The water from the glacier froze in the crevices of the mountain and eventually broke off large, angular blocks, which were later carried away with the glacier. Along the cliff itself, a gneiss, there continues to be deep cracks. The 11 kilometer trip to Trolltunga also passes through the bedrock, and the clean washed slippery hillsides in the background also testify about gray ancient gneiss.

Thousands of tourists visit Trolltunga during the four summer months. Nevertheless, to this day no safety railing has been constructed on the edge of the cliff so as not to harm the natural beauty of the cliff. Despite the insecure gorge, there had been no fatalities at the site (2013). When going out on the Trolltunga, be extremely cautious.

The Trolls Tongue (Trolltunga in Norwegian) might have the sickest view on the planet! To get there you bike, hike and climb the Via Ferrata. A tough hike - but the view makes it worth the struggle!
