Hiking to Trollkyrkja

Eva-Merete Otterlei Børstad, the Student Advisor at Molde University College, organizes hike for all the students every semester. This semester she choosed not only perfect weather, but also a great trail to Trollkyrkja.


The hike took place on 17th of September and around 50 students joined this half day full of fun. Approximately half of the students were international and half were Norwegian, but all got together to have fun while enjoying the beautiful nature of Norway.

At noon the bus was filled up with students eager for the hike, but mostly to see the cave. Easy start turned to steep rocky trail and then to climb as we reached the cave. Surprisingly the temperature dropped by 10-15 degrees as we walked through the dark toward the waterfall. When everybody cooled down, we continued to explore the hidden lake. Some swam, some enjoyed their food and some were busy by taking all the beauty in.

Eva-Merete is inviting you all to join the next hike in April.
