Trollstigen or Trolls' Way - Åndalsnes

Trollstigen or Trolls' Way

The winding road of Trollstigen

Like everybody else, we had to climb up Trollstigen slowly. The steep rocky wall on your right did not encourage risk-taking. We very much wanted to stop by the biggest of the waterfalls but coaches had blocked the parking space completely. As we went up, we only met one coach on its way down that narrow winding road but.... just round one of those hairpin bends - a hair-raising moment! We did make it to the top though or I wouldn't be writing this now.

More panorama of Trollstigen

If you aim your camera more to the right, you can just about see the biggest of the waterfalls, which falls down that imposing mountain and then just beneath the road you are in. Well, no more contemplating this wonderful scenery. We're off!

Trollstigen from the top - Åndalsnes

Trollstigen from the top

View from the top of Trollstigen

What a relief it was when we reached the top. After parking the car, we immediately went to explore the area. From this vantage point, you could see the road you had just climbed in the car, the surrounding mountains, the waterfall and the whole valley as far as the eye could see. A truly rewarding moment for the horrors of that journey.

At the foot of Trollstigen

The car park at the foot of Trollstigen is the place to stop and mentally prepare for the precarious climb in your car. The view is stunning - the steep mountain looming in front of you, the waterfalls rumbling down. You can see the lines of the roads cutting horizontally across the rock - that is where you will be going once you have mustered courage. The kind of stones you can see by the roadside will be the only protection from a spectacular tumble down higher up on the mountain as well.
