On the beautiful Norwegian island of „Senja“: [https://www.gigaplaces.com/oblast-senja/] in addition to the breathtaking nature, there is also one world attraction – the largest troll statue in the world.

Senjatrollet and Trollkjerring

The 18m high statue of the troll man ** Senjatrollet ** was built according to the local legend of the island of Senja and was opened to the public in 1993. A few years later, a second (slightly smaller) statue of the woman ** Trollkjerring ** was added. Access to the complex is free, but inside the statue is a hidden, this time already paid, museum with troll legends.

Trolls

In addition to the two main giant statues, there are many other trolls in the park, although much smaller, as well as various climbing frames and swings for children.

Troll wherever you look

The entire sculpture of ** Senjatrollet ** and ** Trollkjerring ** is part of a small park (or settlement) near the village of Finnsæter. The park is especially suitable for families with children or for lovers of various ratites and attractions.

Garden tractors

Lovers of small tractors, trains and boats will also enjoy themselves, of which there are also several in the park (apart from many trolls). I should not forget the sympathetically decorated souvenir shop, where I definitely recommend having a delicious coffee, and if you're lucky, you'll also come across the local folk band ** The Trolling Stones ** :-)
