About Bispevatnet

The hike takes you from the parking near Trollstigen road and up to the lake Bispevatnet in classic Romsdal scenery. The start of the hike is steep and can be challenging, but eventually flattens out and rewards you with beautiful panoramic views.

Getting there

Park just after the Trollstigen plateau (at the bridge, or just after the bridge). Follow the road 30 m uphill and then cross the road. The start of the trail is marked with a red T (hiking trail).

Trail description

From the trail head, follow the mountain ridge until it flattens, and passes a small pond. Follow the cairned route. The trail then follows the mountain ridge, turning slightly right. At the lake, it's possible to continue further upwards to a picnic area right next to some big rocks.
