Cruises from Trollfjord
The 2.6 km Trollfjord is a western offshoot of the Raftsund strait between the islands of Hinnøya and Austvågøya, that has a length of about 25 kilometres. The name is derived from a troll, an ugly cave-dwelling creature from Norse mythology. Trollfjord is a well-known tourist attraction, often entered by cruise ferries for its scenic wonder. The mouth of the fjord is only 100 m wide, opening to 400 m.
The jagged snow-capped mountains on either side are from 600 to 1100 m high: Trolltindan (1084 m) to the south and Blåfjell (998 m) and hohe Litlkorsnestinden (980 m) in the north.
