So many tourists do the hike to Trolltunga, what else should you cover while in the area?

Well, the area has a lot to offer. Glacier hikes, fjord view hikes, rib boat, kayak, via ferrata, and so on.

I have presented some other hikes in the area on my site, but lets talk about the queens trail now.

This is a great hike for fjord views. The hike goes from A to B so you will need transportation if you are not using two cars. The is a shuttle running, or you could hitchhike. You could start at either end, both have parking. Either way, you end up gaining a lot of elevation in the beginning, and loosing it in the end. I think going from North to South is the best option, ending up in Lofthus.

Feel free to check out my video from the hike:
