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.

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.

  • One of the most famous in the nation. At the top there is the highest step just before to Norway where we found the snow at the end of June. Look out from the tourist facility takes your breath away, watching the falls and feel the stunning roar from below is exciting. With a lovely day all the view you can enjoy better. The narrow road in slope is not as dangerous as everyone wants you to believe, only in case of heavy fog or snow/ice in winter you might have some trouble, or at least if you cross two buses in opposite directions need a little patience. A few hundred meters before the step in a clearing on your right you will see hundreds of trollstigen pyramids stones made by passing tourists.

  • 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
