Overview

Book a tour with Magma Geopark and get the whole story!

The tale of Trollpikken  has begun a long, long time ago – before your grandfather was born, before the dinosaurs – yes, even before the first signs of any plants on our planet. Back then, deep down below an enormous mountain, the Trollpikken was born from warm and red-glowing molten rock. Slowly but surely the mountain on top was worn down by the relentless forces of nature, piece by piece.

The pride and joy of the Dalane district made it on a list of the iconic treks of Visit Norway thanks to the efforts of volunteers and fund raising. In June 2017, somebody destroyed Trollpikken by cutting it off with heavy tools. The people of its home municipality Egersund worked hard to put it back in place with lifts, steel rods and epoxy.

The landscape that surrounds Trollpikken resembles a scene from a Tolkien book with rolling hills, small mountains, rocks and shifting cloud cover. The Vikings also strode through the heather and granite of this area, where the last ice age carved out Trollpikken 10,000 years ago.
