Jutulporten - Jutul'n and Blessomen


Jutulporten - "The Troll Gate" - is a rock formation. The legend tells that the troll Jutul'n, that used to live inside, gave Jehans Blessom a lift home from Copenhagen - so fast that they flew over hill and valley. Back in Vågå, Jehans was told not to look up if he heard a bang. Of course he forgot this, and saw the Jutul Gate open - filled with the glare of gold - just when Jutul'n went in. Now Jehans understood who had given him a lift. But his neck was fixed in the very position for the rest of his life.
