Hike to Romsdalseggen

Enjoying the views
Norway is renowned for its immense natural beauty, evident in the glacial landscapes, cascading waterfalls, ancient fjords, rugged mountains, and sweeping valleys. So 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 a short bus ride from the town of Åndalsnes in the Vengedalen Valley. It's a windy trail that ascends to the top of the ridge, where you'll enjoy panoramic views of the Romsdal Mountains, with the Trollveggen wall, Romsdalshorn, and Vengetindene being the most distinctive peaks. You can also view other iconic mountains like Kongen, Dronninga, and the Trolltindane Ridge.

Beyond that, the view extends to the town of Molde and the Norwegian Sea. The Rauma River snakes through the valley below, with the Rauma Railway tracks running beside it. So, bring your camera, because you won't find views like this anywhere else on earth!
