Norwegian trolls, mentioned throughout Old Norse legends, tend to live in mountains, caves, and under bridges and are rarely helpful to humans, often dangerous. Trolls are said to have insatiable appetites, eating rocks, livestock, humans, and anything else they can get their hands on. They are generally not very bright and some are depicted as deformed, with multiple heads, fangs, and claws, while other depictions show them as incredibly beautiful.
On reaching the top of Mount Fløyen, either on the funicular or by walking up the 320 meters (1000 feet) from the harbor, a short walk from the view point leads into Trollskogen and a great collection of carved wooden trolls.
We see trolls throughout our travels in Norway and all the ones we meet seem to be friendly. We do not encounter any troll-related issues!
