About Himmelstigen to Trolltunga Day Tour
For the 2017 season Trolltunga Active has decided to disassemble the Via Ferrata route called "Himmelstigen". The decision is a follow-up of the annual check on the quality of the mountain, in relation to damages during the winter due to water, ice, vegetation, and how these factors have impacted on the geological conditions in the area. Trolltunga Active set safety as the main factor for all tours and activities, and has decided to shut the Via Ferrata as a guide tour, due to how the the mountain has become insecure during the winter. Via the Ferrata trail is under dismantling. A new Himmelstigen Via Ferrata to Trolltunga are already planned,will be constructed during the summer, and will be opened for the 2018 season.

Yesterday I had the pleasure and honour of visiting Trolltunga via Himmelstigen and it was truly a day never to be forgotten. The guides, Sol and Phillippa, that accompanied our fantastic group (the heavens smiled upon me with the people in the team), were incredible! They truly made my experience with their fantastic knowledge, calmness and joviality - not to mention their Sol's smile and Phillippa's eyes. I would do this trip over and over with them and the rest of the group that we climbed with. Trolltunga is a great place to go - the views are spectacular and this particular journey to the top really emphases them - you have to earn it though! The day out isn't an easy one - it's tough work biking, climbing and hiking for almost half a day. Some level of athleticism is required for sure. And all the exertion is so worth it it is unbelievable!

Great hike on a wonderful day :-) Long hike including bike, hike and climbing the via ferrata Himmelstigen up and down. The guide, Theo, was the best 😊: nice, motivating, knowledgeable and helpful. Thank you for an awsome Trolltunga-experience!

Our experience with TrolltungActive is something we will never forget in our life: simply amazing! It is hard indeed and you have to be in a good shape to do it, but then once you climb your last step, you feel great especially if it's the first time you do something like that like we did. Our guide Filippa has been amzing: she gave us all we need to be safe inspiring courage to the entire group. Thanks Filippa, thanks TrolltungActive for this great experience.

My husband and I did this tour yesterday and it was a fantastic day out. We had wanted to see Trolltunga, but were not looking forward to the 22 km round trip hike, as we had just done three days of hiking in a row. This provided a wonderful alternative. It took just as long as the hike (11 hrs round trip) but it was so varied and interesting and without the crowds! Our guide was Petter and we had a father and son from England with us as well. So it was a lovely small group and the dynamics were perfect. It starts out with a 7 km bike trail alongside the fjord (or lake?) that you see pictured in the Trolltunga photos. The bike ride was on a well maintained mountain bike trail, but very wide so it was easy to bike. The next phase was a hike up through a forest to an absolutely. stunning location by a waterfall for lunch. Then, we had another hour of hiking through a boulder field with a lot of rock hopping. Finally we arrived at the base of the cliffs below Trolltunga. There we started the via ferrata. Basically you have a harness and you clip into either ropes, cables or the metal ladder rungs. In many cases the cliff you are scaling is completely vertical. The via ferrata was a wonderful way for a non-climber to achieve that sense of exhilaration from scaling a sheer cliff face! When we got to the top we had to hike a mere kilometre to get to Trolltunga. There were a lot of people on the trail, so I am so glad we did this tour instead. After the photos at Trolltunga (and Petter repelled down to get a different angle) we did the whole trek in reverse. Going down the via ferrata was a lot more thrilling and scary. I would definitely recommend this trip. If you do it, bring light gloves because some of the ropes can get muddy and you will also prevent friction rubs when going down using the ropes. So far, this has been my best experience in Norway!
