The tour starts from the port of Åndalsnes, and is only available when there is a ship at port. Join the TROLLSTIGEN SHUTTLE BUS in a comfort way for about 45 minutes, while we will drive along the Salmon River Rauma with mountains rising dramatically on both sides before we will come to Europe’s tallest vertical rock face, the Troll Wall (Trollveggen). After a photo stop, the drive continues along the Rauma River a short way back.
And now the real Troll-adventure begins. Crossing the Sogge Bridge, we will approach the Isterdal Valley, surrounded by majestic mountains with names like The King, The Queen and The Bishop. The bus will take us all the way up Trollstigen (Troll Road), a road built in 1936 with 11-hairpin bends. Every bend has its own name, we can find them on the signs placed in every curve. From the bottom of the valley, and on our way up to the Trollstigen Plateau, we can admire the beautiful waterfall Stigfossen with a vertical drop of 180 meters.
On the top of Trollstigen you will have one hour of leisure at the Mountain Lodge Trollstigheimen. Here you can enjoy the magnificent views of the wild mountains and the view over the Trollstigen Road.
You may just wish to take in the fresh air and embrace the natural beauty of your surroundings. There are many photo opportunities for you. For those of you who like to shop there is the souvenir shop which stocks many handicrafts of the area.
Or you might like to take refreshments in the restaurant before re-joining us on the scenic return journey back down the valley.
The entire trip will take a maximum of three hours.
There will be continuous service throughout the day when the cruise ship is in town.
Meeting point is just outside the security gate after leaving the ship. You will be met by staff from Fjord Norway Tours guiding you to the designated bus.
