The land of fjords provides a spectacular backdrop for a hike to Trolltunga, “The Troll’s tongue.” You may not recognize the name, but the image is unmistakable. Buzzfeed described Trolltunga as the “most stunning place in the world to take a selfie.”

This hike involves a long, strenuous climb that will take most of the day, but the for the fit hiker who is unafraid of heights, this is a trail you’ll never forget. Guided hikes are also available.
