Looking for trolls in Trollfjord…

The Trollfjord (Trollfjorden) is a 2 km long sidearm of the Raftsund

The mouth of the Trollfjord where it joins the Raftsund is only 100 meters wide. The fjord widens to a maximum width of 800 meters. The mountains surrounding Trollfjord are between 600 and 1100 metres high.

The Trollfjord is 72 metres at its deepest point.

There are actually different type of troll species which varies in their size, form and habitat. The most interesting fact is that there are several places in Norway that are named after them such as Trollfjorden, Trollhetta, Trolltindan, Trollveggen, Trollheimen and Trollstigen.

The most interesting aspect about Norwegian trolls that you might want to know is the rumor that once they got hit by a strong ray of light especially from the natural sunlight then they will instantly turn into rocks or stones. It’s due to this reason why there are large strange rocks that can be found on weird places of Norway.

Trolls are mystical creatures because they posses capabilities that are beyond human. They can make themselves invisible into the naked human-eyes, travel on the winds and even sneak into your own house without breaking the windows or anything else. Do you know that they are also good shape-shifters?

Shape-shifter means that they can take the form of any objects or animals. In most cases, they like to take the form of a cat or dog or a rolling ball of synthetic fibers. One common method to identify the presence of trolls around your surroundings is that, you can actually hear them speak with their creepy voice or even shout. Some of them simply make noises such as the sound of a cattle.
