Driving though Norway almost always offers spectacular scenery. One of the highlights for us was driving through the Troll Road (Trollstigen) – wild serpentine road down the mountain (or up – depending where you go ). Actually, it was almost more exciting to look at the road from a platform above it, to see it zigzagging down below, with a huge waterfall rushing down the mountain along the road, with buses being stuck for a bit, trying to make almost 180 degree turn. The views of the valley and the mountains from the platform are breathtaking. It was truly amazing!

Literally translating to "the troll's ladder", this cinematic mountain road, whose 20+ hairpin turns look like some sort of sprawling serpent from overhead, is one of Norway's most popular national tourist routes. Halfway to the summit, the six-kilometer road passes by the Stigfossen Waterfall, where locals say you can see the profile of a troll if you look straight in the rushing waters--but only if you're in love. Either way, save yourself for Trollstigen's peak, which features one of the most impressive architectural additions the National Route initiative. The stunning peak's pathway and lookout, jutting dramatically into the thin air suspended over the Isterdalen Valley, might take a strong stomach, but it's worth it for the jaw dropping views. But despite the sprawling natural beauty of the rugged surroundings, the angular, modern design of the cafe, boutique and viewpoint is equally photogenic.

There are many curves in many roads but the combination of the road trip to get there, no matter where you start from, the natural beauty all around, the playful troll signs and the amazing Nordic skill of mixing the modern with the eternal make this an exceptional destination.

Incredible. This is ultimate Norwegian mountain road -beautiful and truly epic. The view from the top down onto the road and the valley is something you will never forget. It takes forever to drive up - at least it seemed that way when I was a kid. ...And it has a great name!
