Trolltunga, one of Norway’s most renowned mountain tops and one of its most popular hikes, will soon host its first-ever wedding.

The peak, one of Norway’s most stunning rock formations, has been no stranger to marriage proposals over the years, but now the world-famous mountain top, which hangs 700 meters above Ringedalsvanet Lake, will host its first-ever wedding in August.

One lucky Danish couple has been granted permission to tie the knot at Trolltunga by Ullensvang Municipality, the local authority responsible for the mountain in West Norway.

This is the first time the municipality has allowed people to get married at the site, situated 1,180 meters above sea level.

The soon-to-be newlyweds aren’t the only ones able to have a fairy tale wedding at the site. Ullensvang Municipality has said that other couples can get married atop Trolltunga, provided they meet a few conditions.

Bride and grooms to be must contact the municipality by August 11th and must be able to have the ceremony on August 14th.

They will also need to have a valid wedding certificate from the tax administration in place.

In addition to this, and potentially a deal-breaker for some, couples and guests will need to make their own way up to the top of Trolltunga for the ceremony.

The journey to the top of Trolltunga and back down again is a 27-kilometre hike, and the average time it takes hikers to tackle the tricky terrain at the mountain in Skjeggedal is between 8-12 hours, depending on their skill.

This means it’s safe to say those renting their wedding suits won’t be expecting their deposits back unless they bring a change of clothes for the trip.
