  • Drive the world-famous series of 11 hairpin bends, known as the Trollstigen Road (Path of the Trolls).

  • Admire soaring mountain peaks, unspoiled valleys, and some of Norway’s most iconic sights.

  • Pause at viewpoints to photograph Europe’s highest vertical mountain wall, impressive mountains, and a beautiful waterfall.

The village of Åndalsnes, Norway’s mountaineering capital, is our starting point. This area is home to one of Europe’s most beautiful train journeys and one of the world’s most scenic hikes, according to Lonely Planet, so prepare yourself for some spectacular scenery.

We’ll follow the Rauma River, surrounded by soaring mountains including the 5,000-ft Mount Romsdalshorn on one side and the 5,100-ft Trolltindane on the other. Our first photo op takes in the towering Troll Wall.

Next, we cross the Sogge Bridge to the Isterdal Valley, lined by mountains bearing names such as The King, The Queen, and The Bishop, and approach the famous hairpin bends that climb to the top of the Trollstigen Road.

We’ll stop to photograph Stigfossen Waterfall then drive up to Trollstigen. Take in the magnificent scenery from the comfort of your bus or join an optional walk to another viewpoint. We’ll slowly trace the Trollstigen bends before returning to our ship.
