During coronavirus pandemic I guess that the pace was slightly removed from the tourist trail. Obviously, It is the matter of time. Once everything gets back on the right track Horsreid beach will again attract as many tourists and hikers as before the outbreak of the covid 19. Anyway in this post I will share with you guys my feelings about the absolutely breathtaking place in northern Norway that you should definitely put on your bucket list.
You can easily get there when heading for the famous Trollstigen serpentine road. On the way to Valldal, you can stay overnight in the trollstigen camping. Alternatively, you can search for some wild camping spots too when getting towards Trollstigen. There are many hidden camping places like for instance, the one squeezed into an area of Istrafossen. Particularly the last place I find really unique due to the peace and quiet. It offerds up an access to wooden benches, bonfire spot and unforgettable landscape views too.
The river of Istra runs through the Isterdalen valley before emptying into the Rauma river in the Romsdalen valley. The place is alleged to be abundant in salmon so if you got you fishing rot packed, maybe chances are you can succeed in catching a hearty fish for lunch. The river is truly crystal clear due to seeping through plentiful cascades of waterfalls all the way up to Trollstigen camping. If you want to explore the area with its landmarks a little bit what is worth visiting is Klovstein or Trollstigfoten.
If I need to be brutally honest, there are no shops in Istradalen. As a consequence, you have only Trollstigen camping and Trollstigen cafe to satisfy your hunger. Surprisingly, the prices in these restaurants are not ranked among the highest ones so you can afford to buy lunch. Needless to say, you should not be concerned with water to quench your first whatsoever as the river offers up totally potable water. Please, take any procosions when fetching water from the river as the force of the flowing water is relatively fast putting your life at risk.
