- I thought this must be "Trollkuken" (the troll's [email protected]) as they have "Trolltunga" (the troll's tongue) in the south, says Yngve Svendsen, the man who has named the rock, to the local newspaper iFinnmark.
The hiker from Alta has seen the phallic rock formation several times on his trips, but it is only when one come up to the side of it that the stone proves to deserve to be named Trollkuken.
- Mostly I see it the from below, but it is from this particular angle that the ladies recognize it, Svendsen chuckles to Nettavisen.
The stone formation is about two meters high.
Trollkuken stands about two and a half hours walk east of Porsa in the Kvalsund municipality.
- Do you think it could become a tourist attraction?
- Yes, but maybe not as big as Trolltunga, says Svendsen.
A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In Old Norse sources, beings described as trolls dwell in isolated rocks, mountains, or caves, live together in small family units, and are rarely helpful to human beings.
Trolls are sometimes associated with particular landmarks, which at times may be explained as formed from a troll exposed to sunlight.
