ROMSDALSEGGEN GUIDED HIKE
This trip starts by bus from Åndalsnes to the starting point for the hike in Vengedalen. Well arrived, you start the hiking trip along the river with the Vengetind mountain on the left-hand side and Romsdalshorn a little further ahead. The hike continues with a light uphill hike before we advance to the first peak.
From here to the top we pass unique sites such as the famous "Trollveggen", the "Romsdalshorn", the Isterdal valley with the Istra and Rauma River, the "Bishop", the "King" and "Queen", and the ocean from Åndalsnes towards Molde. You will see the Isfjorden with the "Churchroof" as the most famous peak.
The walk is secured by a chain on all exposed parties, and with help from the guide, you get a safe hike over Romsdalseggen with spectacular views in all directions. Reaching Aksla mountain, you have two options. You can either walk on a new path built by Mountain Sherpas, a comfortable and safe stone trail down to the "Rampestreken" viewpoint. Here you can step out "in the air" and get an amazing view of the Romsdalen. Optionally, you can take the easy way, and enjoy a ride with the Romsdalen Gondola back down to Åndalsnes.
