Important – Before you go – The Norwegian Mountain Code

IMPORTANT! The weather can change dramatically in the Norwegian mountains. This is why you have to follow the Norwegian Mountain Code when hiking in Norway. It can change from summer and sunny weather to winter and frost in minutes! Always bring good clothes and hiking shoes. And have enough food and water in your rucksack. Due to the often challenging and long hikes in rapidly changing weather, we always recommend you to join a Guided Tour.

Note! Most of the hikes described on this website are intended for experienced hikers that know the area.

Season: July to September, depending on temperature and snow. Do not do these hikes if there are ice and snow on the trails.

Romsdalseggen

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.

Litlefjellet

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.
