It was late May, and I visited my homeplace Isfjorden in Romsdal. We have some cabins there that needed some maintenance before the summer season.
It was a sunny weekend, and on saturday I went on a short photo-trip to Klungnes, one of my favourite photo-spots in the neighbourhood.
Visit Northwest is the official destination company for the Romsdalsfjord, Romsdal and Nordmøre area.
The distance from our cabins to Klungnes is 15 kilometers. I had several stops on the way, and below you can see some photos from the short trip I had.
Klungnes is a small cozy village at the end of a two kilometer long dead-end-road between Åndalsnes and Molde. The view to the Romsdalsfjord and the surrounding mountains is beautiful.
Åndalsnes and the inner part of the Romsdalsfjord is a “hub” with short distance to many great nature attractions in the county of Møre og Romsdal. You have Trollstigen, the Troll Wall (Trollveggen), Romsdalseggen and Rauma Railway around you. You can also reach the Atlantic Road, Eikesdal, Geiranger and the Geirangerfjord, and the cities of Ålesund, Molde, Kristiansund is just a couple of hours drive away.
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, 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.
Drive to the viewpoint Varden at 407 masl and take in the spectacular Molde Panoramic View towards the Romsdalsfjord and the 222 snowcapped mountains. Ona Island and Ona Lighthouse, The Atlantic Road and Midsundtrappene are attractions facing the Atlantic Ocean.
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 Mt Nesaksla 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.
