Trolltunga sunset 🏔

Norway had been on my bucket list for at least 5 years but the hefty price tag always had me finding an excuse to choose an alternative trek. But September 2022, it was time….

After a brutal work schedule in August, I was craving some solo time in the mountains far away from reality.

Mission accomplished.

After actually scaling the intimidating cliffs (400m via ferrata – definitely another blog story), we still had to push our battered bodies another 3.5k to reach the elusive Trolltunga and had exactly 60 mins. My legs and lungs were screaming but I dug deep to power through, even mustered up a few leaps and trots.

As we crested over the last ridge, the elusive Trolltunga was glowing in the last rays of sunlight. It was majestic and surreal…. one of those moments cemented in my brain for eternity!

We all took turns practicing our best starfish pose and then finished with a group celebration on top of the world, while the layers of light melted around us.

And did I mention we still had a 3km trek back to our glass dome hut for the night amongst the stars, full moon and hopeful viewing of the northern lights.

Pinch me!
