Description

The Trollkirka, Troll church, is no ordinary church as many may think, but an exciting marble and limestone cave in the mountains with underground rivers and waterfalls. The caves are in the mountains north of the main road between Moen in Fræna and Eide.

Park by the RV64 and follow the marked path towards Trollkirka. It takes about an hour and a half to get to the caves. There is a sign where you enter the caves. The main cave is about 70 m long and leads into a waterfall that falls into a white marble bowl. Bring good flashlights/headlamps to each person to have a good view when you are inside the caves. If you continue past the entrances to the caves, you come to the idyllic Trollvatnet lake where you can take a refreshing swim!

We recommend hiking boots / waterproof shoes for this trip because of the water inside the caves, in addition to the start of the trail that sometimes can be wet.
