Description

The Rindatroll stands not far from the Preikestolen mountain lodge. It is a fine little stroll, also for the smallest. The path goes through easy terrain and you'll get to the Rindavatn lake where the troll awaits you!

The Rindatroll is a kind, old troll that measures 2,3 metres. You are free to take pictures of and even climb the troll. It is made by Eldfinn Austigard from Årdal in Ryfylke. Did you like what you saw? Get in the troll-mood and visit the Fairytale Forest in Årdal!

The roundtrip takes an hour, but more if you have young children with you. There are some soggy parts - waterproof boots are advised!

Back at Preikestolen mountain lodge, we suggest a swim in the Refsvatn lake - there is a sandy beach just below the lodge. Then you have trully deserved something nice and warm at the lodge!
