Beginning in Geiranger, the tour takes you by bus through breathtaking landscapes and along remarkable stretches of road. We'll stop for photos at various viewpoints and traverse two fjords by ferry. The itinerary includes a coffee break at the Trollstigen café, culminating in a meal at the Eggen Restaurant, perched at the summit accessed by the Romsdalsgondola.

Geiranger og de syv søstre.


The adventure kicks off in Geiranger, ascending the serpentine Ørnesvingen ("Eagle turns") to a vantage point that presents a stunning view of the fjord. This spot allows for views of the gougers Seven Sisters waterfalls, the quaint village, and the majestic mountains that frame the scene.

We continue our journey through neat farmlands to Valldal, also called the strawberry village, where we catch a ferry across the fjord. Before heading up the mountains to Trollstigen, we stop to see the stunning Gudbrandsjuvet river rapids. At Trollstigen's peak, we take a break for coffee at a café with an incredible view.

Trollstigen ("The Troll ladder"), a path of historical significance now transformed into a road, features eleven hairpin curves that meander down the steep mountainside. The innovative architecture at the viewing points offers a deep dive into the craft of road construction, with the largest platform providing the sensation of hovering 200 meters above the roadway.

In the valley below, the towering Trollveggen ("The Troll Wall"), the highest vertical rock face in Northern Europe, promises awe-inspiring views.

The journey culminates with a ride with the Romsdal Gondola cabel car, an unparalleled means to take in the stunning vistas of Romsdalen's fjords and mountains. The gondola lifts you from the fjord's edge to the peak of Nesaksla, offering a 360-degree view of the majestic Romsdalshornet, Vengetindene, Åndalsnes, the verdant valleys, and the vibrant Rauma River. Short, clearly marked trails lead to various viewpoints for further exploration.

At Nesaksla's summit is the Eggen Restaurant, where we will savour a meal against the backdrop of the panoramic mountain landscape. The restaurant specializes in modern Nordic cuisine with a local twist, drawing inspiration from the area's culinary heritage.

The Romsdalsgondolen stands as Norway's inaugural gondola initiative grounded in sustainability, featuring an infrastructure that conceals water, power, and sewage systems within a borehole from the fjord to the summit, leaving the natural surroundings untouched. With no road access to the mountain top, the gondola serves as the sole mode of transport for both people and supplies. Moreover, Eggen Restaurant is designed with the future in mind, allowing for modifications or dismantlement by coming generations without harming the environment.

Who would have thought that a bus tour could be this interesting?

"From the wharf, we board awaiting buses for the start of a guided day tour that will introduce us to some of the most spectacular scenery on Norway’s northwestern coast. Ahead of us, we have an many-our drive, with photo and sightseeing stops along the way. It will include two different car ferries across the fjords". (A travel letter from a freshman cruiser)
