Overview
Details

This is one of the classic tours in Moldemarka. The goal is Varden (407 meters above sea level), ca. 1 hour walk. The trip can start from Molde center, signposted from the harbour, look for signs by the Alexandra Hotel. Follow the "green corridor" through the Reknes park to the pavilion and up to the Romsdal Museum. Continue along the gravel road west of the footbal field (Træffhuset). On the way there are several benches where you can enjoy the great view, but the very best views will come when you reach the top. From the top you will see the Moldepanorama with its 222 peaks.  

Vardestua Cafe on the top is open during the summer period (May-September). Here you can buy refreshments, coffee, snacks and todays dinner.  

This is a family friendly hike. If you want a longer trip, there are also trails off into Moldemarka from the top of the Varden. A recommended trip is to follow the path towards Skihytta and back down the gravel road to the Varden road again.

Recommended footwear: Regular sneakers.
