Trolltur is a family-friendly circular path, partly steep paths and forest paths, on which it is not boring for children. The forest is known for the fact that the trolls are hiding here and maybe you will discover some of them. The path starts opposite the entrance to the campsite. Follow the signs “Åseral” and „Trolltur“ always uphill and don't miss the viewpoint half way. After 2 km you come on a bigger forest path which you follow to the right until a left turn. There the path leads you downhill and you can enjoy the great view. Behind the viewpoint with Troll, the path (at a bench) turns right again. It is now steeper back to Austbygde, you come from the forest at the retirement home and take the path that leads right between houses and forest back to the campsite.
