Geirangerfjord from Eagle Road







After lunch ascended the zig-zag Trollstigen Mountain Road 1936 – 11 hairpins, bus backs off slightly on some of them. High bridge over the falls. Stopped and walked to observation point at top. Ferry crossing (15 mins) of the Stor Fjord to Eidsdal. Came down the Eagle Road, with a view of the Geiranger Fjord. Spectacular view up and down the Fjord. Many hairpins as we descended to Geiranger. Excellent hotel. Smorgasbord dinner.
