There are many valleys that are claimed to be “Norway’s most beautiful”. Vengedalen Valley is one of them. What is certain is that the Vengedalen is right up there in the lead. Vengedalen has been a favorite destination for both locals and tourists since the dawn of time. It is primarily the sport of climbing that has put Vengedalen in Isfjorden on the map of Norway. Today, Vengedalen is best known for being the starting point of the Romsdalseggen and Litlefjellet hikes.
Romsdalseggen has in a short time become one of Norway’s most popular mountain hikes. The hike starts in Vengedalen and ends in the city center of Åndalsnes by the Romsdalsfjord. Now you can choose between hiking down from Nesaksla or take the Romsdal Gondola down to Åndalsnes.
The hike to Litlefjellet in Romsdal is short, but the view from the mountain ridge is fantastic. From Litlefjellet you can see straight down to the Romsdalen Valley and to the Troll Wall (Trollveggen) on the other side of the valley. If Romsdalseggen is too long for you, we recommend the hike to Litlefjellet. This is a “Romsdalseggen Light-hike” with a view which is out of this world.
