Rock-solid marriage vows


Bridal couples Lise Sydnes Boerdal and Njal-Stian Boerdal, Ina Kulsveen and Kjetil Skjaerbaek, Katarina Karlsson and Fredrik Gustavsson, and Tinna Bundgaard Frentz and Kasper Soerensen pose after their wedding ceremony on the Trolltunga ("Troll tongue") rock formation in Ullensvang Municipality, Vestland county, Norway, last Saturday.

The cliff of Trolltunga, popular with hikers and tourists, juts horizontally out from the mountain about 700m above lake Ringedalsvatnet.

Trolltunga is 17km from the city centre in Odda, Hordaland county. It takes at least 10 hours on foot to reach the top of these rocks.

Adventure seekers and hikers from all over the world flock to this natural site between the middle of June to mid-September.

Until 2010, fewer than 800 people hiked to Trolltunga every year, but more than 80,000 people hiked there in 2016. There is no railing around the troll's tongue to preserve the pristine beauty of the view.
