About Trollingträff Åland

The Trollingträff Åland- competition is a tradition that has been arranged since 1993 and attracts participants from near and far. It´s a 3 days contest where the mainwinner is the team with the the highest total score for the entire competition.

2015 was the first year when all starts, weigh-ins, prize ceremonys and dinners were gathered to one place, Käringsund Resort & Conference in Eckerö, Western Åland. Also this year the same place will serve as a center for the contest, in cooperation with Käringsund gästhamn. At the guest harbor there is also gastropub Bodegan, which is open during the competition.

At Käringsund Resort & Conference you both get a comfortable stay and good food and drinks.
