To drive Trollstigen can be a scary experience. The narrow winding road snakes its way up the almost vertical mountainside overlooked by mighty mountains called the King, the Bishop and the Queen. The views are breathtaking, but maybe not suited for those with a fear of heights. The Ister waterfall thunders its way down the mountains under an equally robust stone bridge supporting the road and on into the fertile Isterdalen (Ister valley). Trollstigen was built in 1935 and is a fine monument to building and engineering skills.
This is a traditional tourist road in the dramatic surroundings of Western Norway, naturally decorated with tall mountains, deep fiords and lush valleys. The historic Trollstigen road has 11 curling bends and was opened the summer of 1936. Today, the Trollstigen plateau is modernized with an impressive architectonic style imprinted in buildings, paths and sightseeing platforms.
