Hike to Romsdalseggen

Celebrating at the ridge
Norway is renowned for its immense natural beauty. It's evident in the glacial landscapes, cascading waterfalls, ancient fjords, rugged mountains, and sweeping valleys that abound in the country. Naturally, this unspoiled beauty allows for some incredible nature hikes. Located in the northwest of Norway, in the county of Romsdal, you'll find what is arguably the most incredible hike in the nation: the famous Romsdalseggen ridge. The views from the top of the surrounding mountain peaks and fertile green valley below are nothing short of awe-inspiring. 

The trailhead for this hike is located a short bus ride from the town of Åndalsnes, in the Vengedalen Valley. It's a windy trail that ascends 970 meters overall. Once atop the ridge, you're treated to panoramic views of the Romsdal mountains, with the Trollveggen wall, Romsdalshorn, and Vengetindene being the most distinctive peaks. You can also see out to other iconic mountains like Kongen, Dronninga, and the Trolltindane ridge. Beyond that, the view extends to the town of Molde and the Norwegian Sea. Down below, the Rauma River snakes through the valley, with the Rauma Railway tracks running beside it. So bring your camera, because you won't find views like this anywhere else on earth.
