Description

The trip to Trogfjell in the centre of Åmli follows the bridge Åmfoss bru, one of the longest stone bridges in Northern Europe. The trail is not demanding, about 1.6 kms one way, and it takes about 1,5 hours to hike - round trip. At the top, you'll be about 430 metres above sea level. Both children and adults can easily do this hike.

This is a marked cultural trail with 12 checkpoints to the top of the mountain Trogfjell. When you reach the peak, there are binoculars and a guest book. Previously, people took the train to Åmli to go hiking at Trogfjell, and Åmli people used to celebrate Midsummer Eve on the mountain. There is an old legend explaining why it is called Trogfjell, and the answer can be found in a painting at the Elvarheim museum.

Parking is at Elvarheim Museum.
