Hike to Mt. Litlefjellet in Romsdal

The hike to Mt. Litlefjellet in Romsdal is short, but the view you get at the summit is great.

If you are in the Romsdalsfjord Area area during summer and autumn, we recommend you to hike up to Mt. Litlefjellet Ridge in the Vengedalen Valley in Isfjorden.

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. You now see the Litlefjellet Ridge on the right side, and you can also se the trail on the hillside.

The hike to Mt. Litlefjellet

The starting point and the trail is well marked, and parts of the trail are secured with chains. Mt. Litlefjellet is a wide ridge between Mt. Romsdalshorn and Mt. Blånebba. This is a short hike with a fantastic view over the Romsdal mountains like Trollveggen, Romsdalshorn, Vengetind and Blånebba. You also see down to the Romsdalen Valley and to Åndalsnes and the Romsdalsfjord.

The hike up to the ridge takes around 30 minutes, and is a great alternative to the Romsdalseggen Hike if you have children or if you are not an experienced hiker. Be aware that the ridge has steep downwards hillsides on both sides. If you bring children, always keep them in a safe distance from the steep edges on both sides of the mountain ridge.
