The hike to Kavliheian in Isfjorden is a short and easy hike, and is a great hike for families with small kids. Fjord view towards the Romsdalsfjord is included.
Drive 2.5 kilometers eastwards from the center of Isfjorden to Øvre Kavli. Then around three kilometers (tollroad) to the parking lot at the end of the mountain road.
The hike to Kavliheian
From the parking lot you have a great view towards Åndalsnes and the Romsdalsfjord. Turn around and you see eastwards towards mountains like Mt Juratind which is one of the most beautiful and majestic.
It is one a kilometer easy hike in flat terrain to the mountain pasture at Kavliheian. This is also a great starting point for more demanding hikes in the Isfjorden mountains.
WINTER: From the top of the famous ski-touring-mountain Kirketaket, there is 1000 vertical meters of steep and gentle skiing down to Kavliheian at the foothill of the mountain. Kavliheian is also a popular goal for Cross Country Skiing. There are well prepared ski tracks from the Shooting Range in Isfjorden to Kavliheian and further into the valley.
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. Trollstigen, Midsundtrappene, Romsdalseggen and Litlefjellet are great places to visit. The Romsdalsfjord is located in the county of Møre og Romsdal, north in Western Norway.
