Torghatten Hiking

Torghatten, Brønnøy Municipality, Norway

Get up close and personal with the famous Torghatten Mountain on a short guided hike. A knowledgeable local guide will explain the history of the region and the legend behind the hole in Torghatten. Scientists will tell you the hole is the result of natural erosion, whereas local legend says the hole was created by a troll chasing a beautiful maiden. Which explanation you believe is up to you! Despite the imposing nature of the mountain, the hike is actually fairly easy going for anyone of average fitness, with a well-maintained path that gradually ascends the mountain.
