Odda is the main town and point of reference you want to reach. It is located at the southern tip of the fjord named Sørfjorden, and you can get there from Bergen or Oslo by bus boat and train. If taking public transport, it can be a tricky place to get to so be aware that you may be taking several modes of transportation. From Odda to the starting point of Trolltunga, you need to take a bus towards Tyssedal and up to the trailhead called Skjeggedal.
