Troll’s Tongue, Fjord Norway: Is this the sickest view on the planet?
IF YOU’VE EVER seen a picture of the Troll’s Tongue (and if you haven’t, just scroll down), you know the feeling you get looking at some random person, perched on a tiny piece of granite 2,000 feet above the valley floor, their feet dangling over the edge. Your heartbeat picks up, hands get a little sweaty, and you start thinking to yourself: “That is absolutely insane.”
I can tell you firsthand that the feeling of looking over the ledge in real life isn’t much different. The trip up was nothing like what I expected either, so I thought I’d bring you along, and show you what it’s like to hike up and stand on the edge of Trolltunga, also known as the Troll’s Tongue.
