About Senjatrollet

The world’s largest troll can be found on Senja. Built in 1993, the troll is based upon on an ancient legend on Senja about a troll who was seen both by sea and land. In 2007 the Senja Troll found a wife and she now sits by his side.

There is a “Trollshow” everyday at 13:00 and 16:00 between the 30th of June and 5th of August.
