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

Winter – Skiing to Mt. Blånebba at Romsdalseggen
Mt. Blånebba (1321 mas) is a short detour with great view when hiking Romsdalseggen. Blånebba is also a popular mountain for skiing. You start this ski-tour from the parking at Vengedalssetra, same starting point as the Romsdalseggen Hike.
Follow the same route as the Romsdalseggen Hike to the mountain ridge, where you have a great view down to the Romsdalen Valley and the surrounding mountains. Instead of skiing westwards along Romsdalseggen, you ski uphill towards Mt. Blånebba which is the opposite way. The last 100 meters can be demanding depending on the snow conditions, take care. We recommend to ski down the same route as described when skiing upwards.
Isfjorden is surrounded by great skiing-mountains, and all the mountains have fjord view. We also recommend skiing to Mt. Kirketaket, Kjøvskardtind, Skarven and Galtåtind. In Isfjorden and Romsdal, Guided Tours are recommended.
