Voyage des fjords de Norvège au cœur mystique du pays des trolls lors de cette excursion d'une journée complète sur la côte au départ d'Alesund. Roulez le long des spectaculaires fjords, en vous arrêtant pour visiter le village de Sjøholt, la ville de Valldal qui est connue pour sa production de fraises et les gorges de Gudbrandsjuvet. Profitez ensuite d'une vue incroyable sur la cascade de Stigfossen et sur les montagnes du Roi, de la Reine et de l'Évêque depuis le plateau de Trollstigen. Tout en descendant les lacets de la route des Trolls (Trollstigen), une route escarpée mais trépidante, écoutez les récits passionnants sur les trolls mythiques de Norvège. Avant de regagner Alesund, découvrez le Trollveggen (mur des Trolls), la plus haute paroi rocheuse verticale d'Europe.
this trip along the troll road and to the troll wall is well worth doing, also some nice waterfalls. All the buses take the same route and make the same stops, so this is good value. Tour leader was fine although I could do without the chauvinistic wife jokes.
We were met just off the ship by people with signs clearly indicating ‘Viator’. We were asked to wait a bit while others disembarked. Once most had arrived we were separated into groups by language and whether we had purchased the meal option. We were with Monica, an excellent, experienced guide who took us to a clean, comfortable bus. We had an amazing day viewing the incredible sights of Western Norway. The weather was great so we had good views of the Troll Wall and the Trolls Road, which we traveled up and then looked down at from the top. (I am glad it was not the other way!) The day was longish but went by quickly with so much to see along the way. Our only complaint would be about the restaurant where we stopped to eat..the food was fine but with ALL the tours stopping there it is crowded with lines for food and restrooms. The restaurant does not set up well for the crowds - they should perhaps have two buffets, or set up in a different location for better movement of people. But this is out of the control of the tour company - just a comment. Overall, we loved the tour!
This was a great tour from beginning to end. Anita was a terrific guide, anxious to answer all questions and interjecting some of her personal experiences such as her recent Northern Lights viewing. There was ample time to enjoy each stop, and the ride down the Troll road was quite an experience. As a side note, we followed the cruise ship shore excursion bus throughout the day, even stopping for a great lunch at the same location. But, we paid approx. half the price for our tour compared to booking through the ship. And I'm certain our tour guide was the very best for this particular tour. We are very pleased with our Viator experiences and will continue to take advantage of their tours on future international trips.
You see incredible sights on this excursion. They are really worth while. A highlight for us was the view and exhibition centre right before Troll's Ladder. We had a very knowledgeable and upbeat guide, who was great. Some of the stops near the end could've been skipped, and the bus needed wifi, but other than that, we really enjoyed the experience.
We did enjoy our tour and everything went very smoothly. The instructions regarding the meeting point giving an address were a little confusing and it would have been clearer to simply state that we would be met at the port, which we were! It didn't really make any difference who you booked with, everyone including many bus loads from the cruise ship all went to the same places at the same time and even had lunch at the same venue, however the lunch was delicious buffet style as always with tours serving salmon at least three different ways plus many other local foods and there was plenty to go around. Guide and driver were both very good, friendly and informative. The drive and scenery were spectacular!
Great Scenery Amazing Drive Well Worth the Time and Money
We took a Viator Fjords to Trolls tour on while in Alesund in August 2017 for a day during a cruise ship stop. It was a great decision! We had seen some of the Norwegian fjords from the bottom on small-boat fjord tours the prior few days but this gave us a great view of what happens on the top away from the fjord itself. The views were spectacular! Sweeping vistas, small streams, mountain lakes, narrow roads, tunnels through granite and more. The scenery was completely different than what I was expecting. It was a long day a bit over 8 hours but worth it.
We went down the Trollstigen or troll-ladder which is an amazing series of switchbacks that go from the top of a mountain plateau to the valley floor. There is a viewing platform at the top so we could see where we were going and amazing views on the way down especially the Stigfossen water fall. I was a bit apprehensive as I dont like heights, but the bus went slowly down and it turned out to be great. We also saw the Trollveggan which is the highest vertical wall in continental Europe. It is difficult to get a sense of perspective of the height until you see a speck in the distance and realize it is a person.
The instructions to the meeting area were a bit vague, just Storneskaia 6003. This is essentially the bus-station at the cruise terminal where you can get the Hop-On Hop-Off Bus, the tram tour, or a coffee. It took us about 5-10 minutes to walk there from the ship.
