Trollstigen (Troll's Footpath), Western Norway

4.8
#1 of 17 in Scenic Drive in Western Norway
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.

  • Little to add. It's the classic mountain road with hairpin bends more or less tight. Views, views, and surprises at every kilometer. Beautiful vantage point. Expect a parking lot full of cars, tourist buses and campers and heaps of people making selfie, almost unaware of the beauty of the place.

  • We visited this beautiful place with an excursion organized by costa crociere. Not to be missed! Beautiful!!! I don't recommend but tours from cruise ships because they cost three times more than what you may find turning to agencies on site. Much lower costs and no schedules imposed by ship!

  • An impressive structure is this road already. To travel on this road, but for someone who knows the originality of 25 years ago and the charm of that time, the now modern development with wider track, has lost something just this. The visitors centre is certainly now due to the tourist conditions.
