If you want to experience Trollstigen by foot, we recommend going up Kløvstien. Kløvstien is a varied and spectacular hike that goes from the foot of Trollstigen all the way to the top. This trail has a lot of history, and dates back to the 16th century when people went by horse and hoof from Valldalen to Romsdalsmartnan to trade goods. Here there are endless opportunities to experience the most beautiful and wild things Norway has to offer.
