The hike to Mt Litlefjellet in Romsdal is short, but the view you get at the summit is great. Map to use: Romsdalsfjella Nord 1:50000.
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.
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. You now see the Litlefjellet Ridge on the right side, and you can also se the trail on the hillside. Below is a video from the drive from just below Vengedalssetra Mountain Pasture towards the starting point of the Litlefjellet hike.
See map and more detailed tour description from Romsdal.com. 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 the Troll Wall (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 are not an experienced hiker.
From snowy mountains to beautiful coastline of islands and reefs. Experience all this in one day due to the short distance from mountains to coast. Ona Island and Lighthouse, The Atlantic Road and Midsundtrappene are attractiona facin the Atlantic Ocean. Trollstigen, The Troll Wall, Romsdalseggen, Rampestreken and Litlefjellet are great places to visit in the inner part of the Romsdalsfjord, where the fjord meets the spectacular and alpine Romsdal mountains. Travel green to Åndalsnes with Rauma Railway, a wild, beautiful and unique experience regardless of season. From Åndalsnes Railway Station, you can walk straight from the train and over to the Romsdal Gondola that takes you up to the city-mountain Mt Nesaksla and Eggen Restaurant. From there you have a fantastic view towards Isfjorden, down to the Romsdalsfjord and up towards the Romsdalen Valley which you have just experienced from the train ride along the Rauma Railway. The Romsdalsfjord is located in the county of Møre og Romsdal, north in Western Norway.
