The Trollkirka, Troll church, is no ordinary church as many may think, but...

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 Fraena 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.

First - bring good shoes. Flashlight (prefarably headlamp). Use sports clothes. + Bring a bikini during summer! AND a water bottle. This is an adventure - nothing less. If you do not have good health - dont go. Or only go half the way and wait on the bench. We were there during a bright summer day. So things can... More

Good one! An advice for those who love extreme climbing: don't finish your trip with lake and finish climbing the mountain (equipment recommended). What you'll see can't even be described!

I just came back from a 10 days trip in Norway. We hiked not only 3 famous rocks but also this cave, which is amazing and has a different style than Trolltunga or Preikestolen.. The parking is located on road 64 north of Molde passing the toll road part. (you can also drive the non toll road). keep driving on... More

Trollkirka Cave, also known as the Troll Church, is a pretty awesome hike with a great treasure at the end. The hike will take ~1.5 hours and can be fairly muddy. The trail isn't marked too well but you'll find your way. At the end of the hike you'll find the cave, bring a flashlight and maybe some good boots... More

After a quite hard walk of 1,5-2 hours, we arrived near Trollkirka Caves. Bring with you a torch, because you have to walk in a completely dark cave for few minutes (50-100 meters) to see the waterfall. When you arrive it's realing amazing. Go to see it!!

It's not too easy to find, but its worth to do this 2-3 hours walk (small parking lot at Road 64, 20 km north of Molde or 12 km southwest of Eide). First you walk swampy areas and forest, later rocks. the entrance of the caves is very much hidden, but fantastic once you finally found and down climbed it.... More
