I have seen trollstigen in pictures and my dream was to see this place personally. And now finally....
The Trollstigen mountain road is no doubt the most renowned piece of road in Norway. Trollstigen (The Trolls' Path) was opened in July 1936, after a construction period of 8 years.
But before reaching the top, we have to drive zigzag roads. And that was very scary to me!
As you can see, the waterfall ended here, so I have to see where it is coming from.
The mountains which encircle the road are enormous;Store Trolltind a mighty 1.788 metres above sea level, and mountains called Kongen (the King), Dronningen (the Queen) and Bispen (the Bishop) confirm their majesty in this mountain world. Stigfossen waterfall gushes down the mountainside towards the luscious Isterdalen valley.
And up we go taking pictures with eyes closed. I was so afraid to look down!
But the view was breathtaking!
Part of the waterfall!
Now we are on top of the waterfall!
Finally we are on the top of the trollstigen. I was already very frightened on the way to the top, but still we have to drive down. I was glad that we are not coming back.
But I was happy to see this amazing fall!
A monument along the road!
More breathtaking scenes!
My daughter on top of the world...I mean on top of the bench:)
Nice road sign along the road!
And finally my daughter found a friend:)
She loves this troll, but it can never be her prince :)
I found my troll!
One of the family!
This is my husband's troll. A viking!
Troll inside the cafeteria!
In a fireplace!
Trolls everywhere. Norway's tourist attraction too!
It was an amazing trip for two years ago, but I promise you that I won't drive this trollstigen road again because it was really scary. But if you want an adrenalin kick, this is the place for you to go!
Nice memories though!
