Ørnesvingen - Geiranger - Trollstigen - www.nasjonaleturistveger.no
 

An exceptional driving experience along a route steeped in tradition, through spectacular scenery of deep fjords and lush valleys -  wild, wonderful and vibrant. The historic Trollstigen road, with its 11 hairpin bends, was opened in 1936, and in 2005 the Geirangerfjord was included on UNESCO's World Heritage List.

The Trollstigen plateau appears in new and contemporary design, with a consistent architectural profile for all buildings, trails and viewing platforms. Of all the spectacular motoring routes in the world, we dare to claim that Geiranger-Trollstigen is in the elite division. Tourist enterprises in this region have a long tradition of arranging adventurous and memorable encounters with this untamed nature.

National Tourist Route Geiranger-Trollstigen runs from Langevatn on the Strynefjell plateau to Sogge bridge in Romsdalen valley, and includes a ferry across the Nordalsfjord from Eidsdal to Linge. The route has a total length of 106 kilometres.

The Trollstigen road and the stretch from Geiranger to Langvatn are closed in the winter season.
