The drive along Trollstigen is undoubtedly more dramatic than most people are used to, but what is special about driving in
Norway is that in fact people live just about everywhere. Even on the narrowest mountain ledge or small crag there will be
a house. We are bound to the landscape and the natural surroundings through settlements that have offered us a livelihood
throughout history. Geiranger-Trollstigen offers numerous highlights, and the eleven hairpin bends of Trollstigen as well
as the view from Ørnesvingen down to the Geirangerfjord may set your pulse racing. Lush valleys, sheltered strawberry-growing
areas, precipitous mountains and vantage points guaranteed to make you dizzy offer some of Norway’s most scenic views. Allow
plenty of time for the trip − stops are welcome whether you want the challenge of a hike to a lofty summit or just to enjoy
the view. For those who take the time, there’s such a lot more to be discovered.
For several centuries the road was an important transport artery between Valldal and Åndalsnes, first as a path and then as
a bridleway, until construction of the Trollstigvegen road started up in 1916. Parts of the original pack horse track are
still visible and passable on foot. It’s an exciting alternative for everyone who would like to experience the road as it
was in days of old.
You will find some of the most sensational installations we have constructed on this stretch. Here, viewing points such as
Ørnesvingen, Gudbrandsjuvet gorge and Flydalsjuvet gorge let you explore the natural surroundings in a unique manner. Taking
the ferry on the Geirangerfjord will bring you up close to the well-known waterfalls of Dei Sju Systre, Friaren and Brudesløret
while at the same time you will experience the most renowned fjord in the world – the Geirangerfjord, which is on UNESCO’s
World Heritage List.
