EXPLORE EGERSUND/HIKE TO TROLLPIKKEN

Stavanger - Egersund - Stavanger.

By train from Stavanger to Egersund. It takes approximately 10 minutes to walk from the train station to the centre of Egersund.

Scenic Egersund, is considered to be the northernmost southern style village in Norway. Egersund town has one of the best preserved area of traditional wooden houses in Norway. Visit the Dalane Folk Museum and Egersund Fayance Museum and treat yourself at the Egersund Chocolate Factory.

From the centre of Egersund there is a marked path to Trollpikken. The route goes up to the Vannbassengan and further to Veshovda and Mjølhusåsen (part of the Experience; Dalane Trail) and finally to Trollpikken.

The trip from the centre of Egersund takes approx. 5 hours (round trip). Difficulty level blue (medium). Guided tours available from Magma UNESCO Geopark, Elvegata 23, Egersund.

The landscape that surrounds Trollpikken is similar to a scene from a Tolkien book, with rolling hills, small mountains, rocks and changing cloud cover. The Vikings also travelled on these edges between heather and granite, where the ice carved out Trollpikken 10 000 years ago.

In June 2017, vandalism took down Trollpikken. The locals in Egersund worked hard to get it back in place, with lift, steel and epoxy.


Departure from: Stavanger station (train towards Egersund).


About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)

Trips are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the trip is bookable.
