About season and other important information

We recommend you to join a Guided Tour to Litlefjellet. SEASON: July to mid September, depending on temperature and snow.

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.

The Vengedalen Valley in Isfjorden

You start from the Vengedalen Valley in Isfjorden, the same valley as where the Romsdalseggen Hike starts. Continue driving further up the valley, pass Lake Vengedalsvatnet and drive towards the base of Mt Romsdalshorn.
