A short detour by car (approximately 2.5 kilometer) from Riksvei 64 at Torvika between Åndalsnes and Åfarnes in Romsdal. Beautiful view towards the Romsdalsfjord and Innfjorden with it´s surrounding mountains. View from the road, no hiking necessary. But we recommend you to park the car at Torvika and walk along the road to Klungnes to get an even better experience. Strictly speaking, Klungnes is not in Isfjorden. But since it has the name of the post office “Isfjorden” and in addition is such a beautiful place, we´ll of course present it here 🙂
