Trollstigen is a piece of wonderful stretch of road (route 63) in central Norway. It is narrow, it is steep and there is a waterfall pouring over it. It sounds crazy, and it really is! Håkan and I drove this bad ass in the summer of 2015. Well, actually I´ve been driving it two times now. But it´s just such a masterpiece in the human history so I could even go a third time!
I drove my old bike, a Yamaha from -82. Håkan doesn´t have a license for motorcycles so I lend him a really cool car so he wasn´t going to feel left out: a -71 Beetle. I know… I´m being TO kind… But you have to drive a cool car on such a cool stretch of road!
Where is it
You can find route 63 in the middle of the road E136 and road 15 in the Møre og Romsdal shire. You pass a lot of tourist attractions on the way, such as Trollstigen (obviously), Gudbrandsjuvret and the Geiranger fjord. This was a high priority for me and I´m very happy to have crossed it of my list.
Even when you have passed Trollstigen, the road continues on to be truly amazing. It was raining for most part of the time, but at least sometimes we got that sweet feeling of the sun rays hitting our faces!
Amazing times 40 equals Norway.
If you go to Trollstigen, you should really drive a bike. It is a bikers paradise with its windy, narrow roads. If you don´t own a bike, rent one. If you don´t have a driver’s license for motorcycles, you should drive an old -71 beetle. I´m just saying… it was all that is good in life! ;-D Us bikers, we love the Trollstigen, and I can do nothing but give it a 5 out of stars:

I hope you´ll have the chance to go here one day, if you haven´t already been!
Have a great one!
