Trollfjord – the spectacular Arctic fjord

Cruise into Trollfjord by Robert Cranna, Hurtigruten

The amazingly narrow Trollfjord is a 2 km long sidearm of the Raftsundet strait between Lofoten islands and Vesteralen archipelago. With its narrow entrance and steep mountain sides, the Trollfjord is really exotic and spectacular.

Hurtigruten sails into Trollfjord

The narrow mouth of the Trollfjord is only 100 meters wide, and widens to a maximum width of 800 meters. The steep mountains surrounding the fjord are between 600 and 1100 metres high.

During the summer months the Hurtigruten ships make a detourdepending on the weather situation – an unforgettable experience!! The entrance is so narrow it looks like it is not possible for such a large ship to enter, and it looks even more impossible to turn the large ship at the end of the fjord. The incredibly steep mountain sides add to this amazing experience, and Sea eagles circling around the mountain peaks are quite a common sight.

What our customers say:

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • We just recently completed the Tromso, Northern Lights & Arctic Coast tour. I am writing to say what an amazing tour we had. Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all.
    I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour.
    Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!
