I visited the Trollholmsund at the beginning of July 2013 with a group. It is located on the west side of Porsangerfjord and is about 35 km north of Lakselv. One has to turn away from the main road and drive on a smaller road to get to the parking area. The place is dominated by dolomite rocks and stones. Firstly, there is a parking area. After that one has to hike about 1 km on a nice, marked coastal trail to reach to the naturally formed dolomite formations. Legends say that these are trolls who were froze to stone by the rising sun. The trail is easy to walk and offers many beautiful views to the fjord and surrounding mountains/hills. In the beginning the trail passes some farm houses and one also has to go through a pasture gate. One shouldn't forget to close it after passing through in order not to let sheep out. The formations are nice with all kind of interesting shapes and one could easily imagine these to be frozen trolls. The trolls would also provide good protection from wind if it happens to be windy. I think it is very nice place to visit and highly recommend it.
