Phone with mapping app (Norgeskart or Locus Pro with topo map layers pre-loaded).
Paper map and compass as a backup, ALWAYS when in less known terrane
GPS handheld unit with topo maps installed (opentopomaps are ok here). This used to be a Garmin Etrex 30X but I received a new Garmin Fenix as a gift and it has 50hours battery with GPS on, OpenTopoMaps installed for all of Europe (I manually added contour lines in overlay) in addition to being a great sports tracker watch. As the maps are essentially the same as on my Etrex (TopoActive), the latter became redundant. To actually browse the map however, paper or a phone with an opentopomap app installed are preferred.
