This post is dedicated to the new No.1 place I want to visit: Trolltunga. I only found out this place existed a few days ago, hard to believe its even real because its that amazingly awesome. Just have a look and be awed.

 

Found this stunning photo on Visit Norway http://www.visitnorway.com/uk/product/?pid=149585

 

Trolltunga or ‘Troll’s Tongue’ is in the west of Norway and sits 700 metres above lake Ringedalsvatnet in Skjeggedal. Does anyone else see Pride Rock when they look at it?

 

Unfortunately Trolltunga is not the easiest place to get to – its a 6 hour drive from Oslo the capital of Norway to the town Odda which is the nearest to Trolltunga. the hike itself to the top of Trolltunga takes between 8 and 10 hours round trip, so it isn’t for the unfit (oh no, I need to get in shape!).

 

Thank you Visit Norway for the beautiful photos! http://www.visitnorway.com/uk/product/?pid=149585

 

And so the plan is to visit Norway at some point over the next few years. I’m already in love with the country and its spectacular scenery and I promise to make the trip to Trolltunga where I will stick my head off the end of the ledge and take the customary jumping photo all whilst fearing a 700 metre fall to my death.
