Trøllanes is a village on the island of Kalsoy. We crossed to Kalsoy via a short ferry ride from Klaksvik and drove up to the village. The road cuts away through mountain-sides where necessary through tunnels which are a marvel of engineering. We parked at a small carpark in the village of Trøllanes for our hike to the Kallur lighthouse on the coast. The carpark had toilet facilities. The path itself is clearly marked from the start and is easily found from the village. The walk is approximately 3-4 kilometres but some of the terrain can be steep. Take good walking shoes - preferably boots. We did the walk in summer of 2018, and there were signs clearly stating that walkers should stick to the marked paths. We saw one walker who wandered across the moors and who was dive-bombed repeatedly by a very aggressive bird - so take heed. The views along the walk are splendid - lush green hillsides, steep mountainous slopes on one side, and the ocean with incredible views of cliffs stretching toward the horizon on the other side. Once reaching the lighthouse, the cliff views are simply stunning. Set aside some time to spend wandering around the hills and paths around the lighthouse end of the trail.
