Norsk Tindesenter in the harbour of Åndalsnes in Northwest, Fjord Norway
The Norwegian mountaineering centre in Åndalsnes.

With majestic mountains towering over deep valleys and green rivers, Åndalsnes is home to gems like Trollveggen, the Romsdalseggen ridge, and the Norwegian Scenic Route Geiranger-Trollstigen.

Famed for its high peaks and long mountaineering history, the city of Åndalsnes in the northern part of Fjord Norway is often called the alpine village by the fjord. The area has many peaks well suited for beginners, as well as more challenging routes for experienced hikers and climbers. In winter, swap your hiking boots for skis!

For a different perspective of the landscape, balance along the Romsdalsstigen via ferrata. Or hike a trail partly built by Nepalese Sherpas, that lead to the Rampestreken viewpoint.

The scenery makes for memorable road trips and train rides as well. Feel thrilling nerves as you drive (or bike) the 11 hairpin bends of Trollstigen. Or jump on the Rauma Line, named Europe’s most beautiful railway journey by Lonely Planet.

Rauma municipality has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
