Trollfjord – the spectacular Arctic fjord

Hurtigruten in Trollfjord by Joachim Bolter, Hurtigruten

Trollfjord: one of the most spectacular highlights of Artic Norway!

This Arctic fjord is a tiny, 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 truly exotic and spectacular!
This amazing fjord can only be reached by boat, as there are no roads along the steep sides.

Read about the fjord, as well as how you can see the Trollfjord on a cruise along the Norwegian coast:

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 detour to the Trollfjord (weather permitting)  – an unforgettable experience!!
The entrance is so narrow it looks impossible for such a large ship to enter, and even more impossible to turn the large ship at the end of the fjord. The incredibly steep & tall mountain sides make the experience even more dramatic!
Sea eagles circling around the mountain peaks are quite a common sight.

What our customers say:

  • 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!

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
