The trail to Grøvdalsakken in Romsdal is steep and it is a heavy hike. But the view when you see Lake Bakkevatnet is great.

Go Fjords - Åndalsnes by the Romsdalsfjord

Drive eastwards from the center of Isfjorden to Grøvdalen. The hike to Grøvdalsbakken starts from Stølen. This is where the toll road ends, in Søredalen at the innermost part of Grøvdalen.

Hiking to Grøvdalsbakken

The first part of the hike is easy. The trail is gentle and flat and goes through an open cultural landscape before it continues in the forest. After you cross the river on a suspension bridge, the path gets steeper up Loftdalen. The hike to Lake Bakkevatnet is six kilometers one way. It takes approximately two hours from the start to the small cabin by the lake.

It is allowed to fish for trout at lake Bakkevatnet and the other lakes in the Isfjorden mountains. For more information and to get a fishing license, contact Hen Fjellstyre.

The trail continues up to Øvste Bakkevatnet at 861 masl. There is another small cabin there that which is also open to everyone.
