This film tells an old myth about how some fjells (mountains) in northern Norway were created.
The story is: A long time ago, when dinosours lived in the world, it was the time for giant trolls in Northern Norway. They had a fine time, and had only one thing to fear: They had to get in at dawn, course if they were hit by one single ray of sun, they became stone.
Now trolls were not very intelligent, som many trolls became stone. That's why Norway have so many fjells.
North in Helgeland, with the Westfjord between them, were two mighty kings, Vågekallen and the king of Sulitjelma. Both of them had their worries. Vågekallen with his disobedient son Hestmannen and the king of Sulitjelma with his seven wild daughters, who he had sent to Landego where Lekamøya was living. One evening Hestmannen caught sight of Lekamøya and the seven sisters, who were swimming outside Landego
He went Crazy about Lekamøya and decided to rob her at midnight. On horseback cloached in complete armour, with the plume of his helmet wawing, he tored along the coast on his way south.
The maidens discovered him and tried to hide at Alstahaug. Only Lekamøya continued her flight soutdwards. The king of Sømnafjellene, near Brønnøysund, was waching the flight.
Dawn was approaching and the king saw the disappointed suitor as he fit an arrow to his bending bow. The king grabbed his hat and threw it between Hestmannen and Lekamøya, thereby saving her. The arrow went through his hat and fell in the sea. The hat fell down at Torgar.
Lekamøya was saved, but only for a short while.
At the same moment the sun rose and all the trolls was made to stone.
As a matter of fact this legend is thrue. If you do not believe that, just take a look: All the trolls are still there as fjells (Mountains): Hestmannen to the north, the seven sisters on a row at the town Sandnessjøen. Lekamøya is an appr. 10 meter high kliff on the island Leka to the south. Even the hat is there. It’s nowadays called ‘Torghatten’ and placed near (the town) Brønnøysund – and the hole is there too.
Nowadays the Torghatten is a calassic goal for hikers. You pass the beautiful twisted bridge near Brønnøysund and go south appr. 10 miles (17 km) to the parking below the hat (It’s my car). From there you start the walk to the hole.
The trip is a little exhausting, at least to a 15 years old dog, so she had to return to the car and wait there.
You can walk through the hole, which is 30 m high, and the view from there is fantastic.
Later you can go down on the other side.
The trip to the hole takes appr. 20 minutes and is little strenuous, at least to an old dog
