Description

The road was opened by King Haakon VII on 31 July 1936, after a construction period of eight years. Now the road winds its way from the head of Isterdalen up to Stigrøra. The new road was built for roughly the same route as an older trail called Cleavage trail. The trail is now restored and has marked footpaths from the guesthouse and to the top. There are eleven hairpin bends of the Trollstigen road. Halfway up the mountain road there is a newly restored bridge, just below the 180-meter high Stigfossen. Water spills over the Trollstigen to create beautiful natural waterfall, a truly memorable sight amongst many.
