Description

The Romsdalen valley is long and narrow with majestic towering mountains on either side. Along the valley floor in a wild and beautiful setting runs the foaming salmon river, Rauma. At Verma the Rauma runs through a 30-40 metre deep gorge, forming Slettafossen waterfall. The waterfall is secured by fences on either side and can be crossed by a bridge. At 1,000 metres, Trollveggen is Europe's tallest vertical, overhanging rock face. Scandinavian rock climbing started in the Romsdal Alps, which boast some of the world's most difficult climbs. On the opposite side of the valley, the Romsdalshorn peak towers to a height of 1,555 metres. On the E 136 road, directly below Trollveggen there is a picnic area with a tourist information office, WC, kiosk, children's play area and a marvellous view of the mountains.
