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. 

National Tourist Route Geiranger-Trollstigen runs from Langevatn to Strynefjellet and Sogge Bru in Romsdalen, a total distance of 104 km (Road 63). On part of this stretch you must take a ferry from Eidsdal to Linge. If you want to experience a fjord cruise, you should include the ferry route between Valldal og Geiranger as part of a round trip of the World Heritage area, or as part of the stretch from Geiranger to Trollstigen. On the very same day you can experience the best that both fjords and mountains can offer.

There are restrictions on the length of buses on this section and the maximum length is 13.1 metres.

Traffic information: Single-lane traffic on county road 63 below Ørnesvingen due to a landslide.
In May, a landslide occurred 60 metres below county road 63 at Ørnesvingen between Geiranger and Eidsdal. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration has therefore closed one half of the road to traffic, which is routed through the other lane over a distance of approximately 35 metres. This single-lane solution will remain in place until the end of 2016. A temporary guardrail will be installed, and the NPRA will ensure that manual traffic control is put in place if required. There may be queues of traffic, and buses may encounter difficulties. The road improvments will start August 2016. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration therefore urges all road users to exercise caution.

Winter notice: The road is now open. Parts of National Tourist Route Geiranger - Trollstigen are closed during the winter season. The stretch from Langevatnet -Geiranger is usually closed in November and reopens in May. Trollstigen is usually closed in October and reopens in May.
