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. The road between Geiranger and Trollstigen is a Norwegian Scenic Route. Norwegian Scenic Routes are selected roads that run through landscapes with unique natural qualities, along coasts and fjords, mountains and waterfalls. The routes are intended as alternatives to the main roads, and the drive itself should be an enjoyable experience.
