Trollstigen is a very popular attraction on Romsdal. There is the inevitable legend about trolls (the mountains are said to be a troll bridal procession turned to stone) that lead to the inevitable score of souvenir shops selling all matter of troll dolls. The road can’t handle large vehicles, but rented caravans being driven by inexperienced tourist drivers are more than welcome. The pass is actually stunning and the mountain views are fantastic, it’s just the crush of people and slow procession of RVs going up and down the switchbacks that conspire to rob the place of some of it’s magic.
The construction was also a bit of a bummer, but from the looks of what they were doing I think they’ll end up with a very cool visitor’s centre.
From the valley below the mountains are no less impressive.
