Experience Trollfjorden

Trollfjorden is located on the southernmost part of Vesterålen, just north of Svolvær. It's only three kilometers long, but what it lacks in length, it makes up for in a dramatic fashion! The short and narrow Trollfjorden is surrounded by steep, wild mountains. This fjord passage leads deep into the Trolltindan Mountain and ends at the dramatic Raftsundet. This fjord is a popular destination for visitors, due to the beauty of the natural setting. The fjord is only accessible by boat, unless you want to hike 10 kilometers through very rugged terrain. The name Trollfjorden is derived from the word troll, a mysterious and frightening creature from Norse mythology who dwells in mountains or caves.

Facts about The Trollfjord:

  • The Trollfjord is about 3 kilometers, while the mouth of the fjord is only 100 meters wide
