Trollstigen (Troll's Footpath), Western Norway
(4.8/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Drive up Trollstigen (Troll's Footpath), a scenic serpentine mountain road through the alpine landscape of a protected area, parts of which belong to a national park. The narrow road with 11 sharp bends climbs up to a 700 m (2,300 ft) plateau with panoramic viewing balconies. Leave your car in the parking lot here and walk out to the platform to view the winding road and two waterfalls. King Haakon VII opened the road in 1936 after eight years of construction. A modern tourist facility with restrooms, a gift shop, and a museum was completed in 2012.

  • Our car was absolute crap, and we were unsure if it would go up the steep incline considering the engine was the size of a carry on case, but renting a cheap car for 2 weeks is near to impossible to d...  more »
  • As in Norway you need to hit the weather. We had bad luck so views, unfortunately I do not have seen but the joy from the little cancelled out the limited visibility, hard trip had to tell:) spore slope exit/driveway, bends 180 and quite narrow way require a little experience but dangerously is not!

  • One of the top 5 of best roads in Europe. Awesome viewpoints and great if you love driving. Not suited for motorhomes or caravans. Only nice when it's a clear day, preferably may-july. In early summer, the summit offers quiet drives through walls of snow. Awesome!!!
  • Stigfossen is a tremendous impressive waterfall at the most famous road in Norway: Trollstigen. Trollstigen is a road with many sharp curves and an elevation of approximately 850 meter. At the top of Trollstigen there is a viewing platform, Trollstigheim called, where you have a beautiful view on the road and the waterfalls Stigfossen and Trollfossen. The Stigfossen is the most powerful waterfall of the two and the most photogenic. When driving to the base of the fall you will have a good view up with an old bridge going over the fall. Especially in a period of heavy rainfall or extremely melting of snow the waterfall appears to be a great waterfall. The river Istra drops down over 250 meters and is fed by many lakes and two small glaciers.
  • Nice view and the Trollstigen is fun to see and drive. But there are some much more fun and stunning drives in Norway.
  • Everything here is awesome. The road, the view, service and also these scary goats you can meet at the parking lot.
  • Extremely adventure for driving. One of the top roads to test your Epinephrine. Don't miss the experience
