Romsdal egg

Romsdal egg is one of Norway’s most beautiful mountain worlds. Take the trip over the iconic Romsdalseggen to Åndalsnes and enjoy 10 kilometers with spectacular views over some of Western Norway’s most magnificent peaks.

The season for this mountain tour lasts from mid-June to the end of September or the beginning of October. The trip is demanding and requires you to be well prepared, in good shape and have the right equipment. The path goes through a varied landscape. From the forest in Venjesdalen to airy sections and bare mountains up to 1,329 meters above sea level. In some places you also have to split a little. The weather at the top can quickly become cold and inhospitable and if you are not familiar with the area, we recommend going on the trip with a local guide.

The panoramic view
Like a massive cock’s comb, the Romsdal Egg rises up from the deep Romsdalen. It is not without reason that Åndalsnes is called the “Tindehovedstaden”. From Romsdalseggen you can see, among other things, the Trollveggen. The mountain massif stands proudly with its row of craggy peaks. And with its vertical drop of around 1,000 metres, the mountain offers challenges for both climbers and base jumpers.

The panorama gives you a 360-degree view of some of Romsdalen’s most famous mountain peaks; Romsdalshorn, the King, the Queen and the Bishop. You can also see all the way to Molde city and the Norwegian Sea. Far down in the valley floor you can glimpse the Rauma river winding through the landscape and the train tracks that lead the Rauma railway between Åndalsnes and Dombås.

Meeting point Nesaksla
At Nesaksla (708 m.a.s.l.), several hiking trails and healthy mountain people meet. Here you will meet those who have climbed the Via Ferrata and those who have made the trip from Åndalsnes via Romsdalstrappa and the Rampestreken – and those who have traveled to Nesaksla with the Romsdal gondola. At Eggen restaurant you can enjoy a refreshment and a snack or a better meal before continuing your journey down to the center of Åndalsnes.

Romsdalstrappa and Rampstreken
When you head down from Nesaksla, you will meet the Romsdalstrappa, which was built in stone by Sherpas from Nepal. Here you can experience the spectacular viewpoint Rampestreken . The ramp line is a 20 meter long steel ramp, where the last eight meters go straight into the air.

The outermost meters of the solidly built ramp have only a grate to support you. The walkers who have already stood on the edge of the Ramp Streken have several spontaneous reactions: Some feel sick to their stomachs and others think it is both intense and airy – but you are guaranteed exciting holiday pictures.

If you don’t want to walk the last leg from Nesaksla to Åndalsnes, the Romsdals gondola takes you down from the mountain in around 5 minutes.

How to get to Romsdalseggen
With Åndalsnes as your starting point, you can easily reach the starting point for the trip over the Romsdalseggen. The Romsdalseggen bus takes you to Venjesdalen and the hike itself takes you back to Åndalsnes. From June to September, the Romsdalseggen bus runs from Åndalsnes shuttle and railway station to Venjesdalen. The bus starts outside Norsk Tindesenter and takes around 20 minutes to reach the hiking trail.

Parking at Åndalsnes
We recommend parking at Rauma Kulturhus and Romsdalseggen Parking. This is the nearest car park when you come down from Romsdalstrappa and Rampestreken. From here it takes around 4 minutes to the shuttle station at Norsk Tindesenter and the Romsdal gondola.
