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 Käringsund Resort & Conference you both get a comfortable stay and good food and drinks. The participation fee for the Trollingträff Åland 2024 includes dinner on all competition days (Wednesday-Saturday) served in the restaurant at Käringsund Resort & Conference.
