Ålesund - Sjøholt - Geiranger - Trollstigen - Ålesund
Experience two of the most amazing roads in Norway!
This round trip starts in Ålesund and head for the UNESCO Unesco World Heritage listed Geirangerfjord. After a one hour stop in Geiranger the bus continues via Valldal towards Åndalsnes. The trip to Åndalsnes goes via Trollstigen, one of the best known and most visited tourist sites in Norway.
The highest point of the road lies 850 meters above sea level. The bus stops here for 25 minutes, enabling you to enjoy the spectacular view. The bus then curves down the 11 hairpin turns towards Åndalsnes.
From Åndalsnes, the return to Ålesund goes along the Romsdalsfjord and over the 1290 meters long Tresfjord bridge.
It is possible to stop at Valldal instead of going to Geiranger. Those who wish to do this, must continue by bus 210 from Linge ferry harbor to Valldal instead of taking the Linge–Eidsdal ferry.
You then have time to explore Valldal on your own until bus 220 returns from Geiranger via Valldal to Trollstigen and Åndalsnes with return to Ålesund. See the time table for the departure from Valldal.
Departure from: Ålesund bus terminal ("Rutebilstasjonen"), track 4

About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Tours are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the tour is bookable.
