Trollstigen—the Troll’s Road

Steep slopes and abrupt turns are worth a drive to see the startling sceneries of surrounding mountains and maybe troll's humps

The trip through this steep serpentine road paved along the mountains slopes, resembling a giant troll's back as Norwegians say, is not recommended to those suffering from height phobia.

Bluffs make it hardly possible to simply look out of the car's window and not to feel dizzy, and abruptly turns able to wring your neck are drivable only for short compact vehicles. In spite of all the risks and inconveniences, breathtaking sceneries, particularly surrounding mountains and waterfalls make the road an extremely popular tourist attraction, drawing around 600,000 drivers every season which lasts from May or June to October or November when the way is not blocked with snow. It is still advisable to check weather forecasts for the foggy days, as milky mists may hide all the beauty.
