Visit Trollfjorden and admire one of the most incredible Norway's highlights by going straight into narrow water gap with steep mountain slopes around.
Magic strait at the feet of enormous mountain slopes called Trollfjorden shows mysterious north Norway beauty. The length of the Trollfjorden is 2.5 km and the width of the inlet is 200 m. When you go a little further into the fjord you are so close to reach or touch the mountainsides because the width here is only 100 m! Here you can see mountain peaks as Trolltinden on one side and Blåfjellet on the other.
Deeper inside the fjord expands and forms an inner pool with a maximum width of 350 m. The landscape here is extremely impressive. On the north side of the fjord you can find is a vertical smooth wall made of monzonite, which is the oldest stone in Norway.
The fjord owes its interesting name from the figure of Norse mythology – troll. The old tale says that trolls here have not been waked up for thousand years. Be quiet!
This place was even a cause of The Battle of Trollfjord between fishermen in 1890 as well as inspiration for well-known Norwegian artists and writers.
