This extraordinary destination can be found in Hustadvika municipality in Møre og Romsdal, a short way up the mountainside. The cave is situated about 480 metres above sea level and is about a 90-minute walk up a steep, well-marked path from the carpark.

Cave walking in Trollkirka caves

In the first cave, which is about 40 meters long and shaped like an S, you arrive at a beautiful waterfall that falls 14 meters into a white marble pool. In the cave above, the uppermost cave that mainly comprises long underground passages, you can see the waterfall falling straight down into the cave below. To experience the caves in all their glory, make sure you bring good head/flashlights for each person visiting.

Idyllic fishing lake

If you continue past the caves you’ll reach Trollkirkevatnet, a beautiful fishing lake with white marble jetties. In warm weather, it’s a great place for a refreshing swim or to enjoy a night under the stars in a tent or hammock.

Atlanterhavseggen ridge

If you’re feeling energetic, it’s possible to continue the trip by heading up the Trolltindan mountains or over the spectacular Atlanterhavseggen ridge that runs along the mountaintops and down to Brandsæter farm at Nås. Many people are familiar with the Romsdalseggen ridge in Åndalsnes, and, although this trip may not be as well known, it is just as spectacular and perhaps a little less crowded.

Melen mountain – one of the most beautiful walks

This mountain walk is one of the most beautiful hiking experiences in outer Nordmøre and Romsdal. Melen mountain is beautiful, and the view from the top is dramatic and spectacular. The summit is bare mountain with the highest point being 769 metres above sea level. At Melvatnet lake there is a small stone cabin that’s open to all, and lower down is the forest.


There are several great accommodation options in Hustadvika municipality and it's also not far from the hotels in Molde. A perfect basecamp for magical mountain experiences this summer.
