Nordre Trolltind: Alpine hike

Inquire Booking

At the end of the 19th century, British tourists and climbers started climbing and exploring the peaks of Romsdalen. While out adventuring, these mountaineering-pioneers often stayed at Hotel Aak. Mountaineering still plays a central role in Romsdalen – in fact, Åndalsnes is named the mountaineering capital of Norway.

Now it is time for your adventure – your time to climb the peaks of Romsdalen! This hike is for those who want a long day out, ascending 1405 metres till the top of Nordre Trolltind. You should be in good physical shape, because this is a long day out in the mountains. From the top of Nordre Trolltind you will feel tickling in your stomach, when you look 1400 meters down in the valley. Your boundaries may be tested – a fun and exhilarating feeling. We promise to take good care of you while exploring some of the most magnificent peaks of Romsdalen.
