About season and other important information
GRADING – Medium. ALTITUDE DIFFERENCE – This hike starts at approximately 660 masl (Parking by the road). Highest point at approximately 800 masl (Litlefjellet Mountain Ridge).
GUIDE – We recommend you to join a Guided Tour to Litlefjellet.
SEASON – July to mid September, these are approximate dates that depends on the weather, temperature and the amount of snow in the mountains.
SAFETY IN THE MOUNTAINS – You should follow the Norwegian Mountain Code when hiking in Norway. It can change from summer and sunny weather to winter and frost in minutes! Always check the Weather Forecast before you go hiking. For safety reasons it is recommended to avoid hiking in Thunderstorms, in fog, in bad weather and when it is snow and ice on the trail and in the mountain! Always bring good clothes and hiking shoes. And have enough food and water in your rucksack.
NOTE – Be aware that the Litlefjellet mountain ridge has steep cliffs on both sides! And parts of the trail up to Litlefjellet have steep sections. If you bring children, always take care of them on the way up and keep them in a safe distance from the steep sections of the trail as it is easy to stumble / fall in these sections. Also keep safe distance from the steep cliffs on both sides of the mountain ridge! Best suited for older children who are used to hiking in the mountains since there are some steep passages with exposed surroundings.
You start the hike to Litlefjellet from the Vengedalen Valley in Isfjorden, the same valley as where the Romsdalseggen Hike starts.
