Geiranger - Valldal - Trollstigen - Åndalsnes
This trip, which is also known as "The Golden Route", takes you from Geiranger to Åndalsnes. The small town of Åndalsnes is idyllically located in the valley of Romsdal, at the mouth of the river Rauma, by the Romsdalsfjord.
The route includes both the Eagle Road, a zig-zaged road up the steep valley sides of Geirangerfjord with a number of breathtaking view points overlooking the valley, and the world famous Trollstigen, with its hairpin turns down towards Åndalsnes.
Åndalsnes is a nice town, majestically situated between the fjord and the mountains. Around Åndalsnes you have all possibilities to experience various activities, from stand-up paddling in the rivers to mountain hikes at all levels, via ferrata, or a gondola ride to the top of the Nesaksla mountain – where the view is spectacular.
Departure from: Union Hotel (just outside the hotel) or Geiranger village centre

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.
