Hike the Trollkirka Caves

Trollkirka, or the Troll church is not an ordinary church as many might think, but consists of three exciting marble and limestone caves with underground streams and waterfalls. Hike 1.5 hours on a steep path to get up to the caves.

25 minutes from the Atlantic road, you can experience magical nature and get a fantastic reward when you arrive. From the marked car park at RV64 it is approx. 90 minute hike on a steep path. Trollkirka (484 m.a.s.l.) consists of three marble and limestone caves. The bottom cave is about 40 meters long and in an "s-shape". Here you enter a beautiful waterfall which falls 14 meters into a white marble pool. In the cave above you can see the waterfall falling straight down into a cave. The uppermost cave mostly consists of long passages underground. 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.
