Lonely Planet review

Norway seems to make a speciality of extraordinary rock platforms offering both panoramic views and postcard-perfect photo opportunities. Up there with all the others is Trolltunga, a narrow finger of rock that hangs out over the void high above the lake Ringe-dalsvatnet. To reach it, drive north of Odda to Tyssedal, then northeast to Skjeggedal, from where Trolltunga is an eight- to 10-hour return hike away. En route, watch out for the Tyssestrengene waterfall (646m). If you continue on a little beyond Trolltunga, you reach another fine vantage point, Preikestolen (Pulpit Rock), a smaller version of the lookout of the same name above Lysefjord, close to Stavanger.
