A very motorbike-friendly mountain road with many sharp hairpins and exhilarating scenery, Trollstigen is literally carved into the cliff face, dramatically crossing the Stigfossen waterfall, and elevating the traveller from the valley floor, into the dark and ominous clouds above.

The morning passed all too quickly, with a breathtaking 230km ride over the hills from Trollstigen, 108 kilometres of which, brought us along Sognefjellet National Tourist Route, the highest mountain pass in Northern Europe, at 1,434 metres above sea level. The ride came to an end when Norway's highest mountain, Galdhøpiggen, suddenly came into view, meaning we had arrived at Jotunheimen National Park.
