Try out this tour for a cool ride and challenging scramble adventure. This is a steep and exposed mountain hike/scramble where you should be a quite experienced hiker and not afraid of heights.

Level: Advanced                                                 Length: 5,5 km (hike)

You should be in good physical shape and have experience with hiking in rough terrain.


After a fun e-bike ride up the Trollstigen road we will lock our bikes by the café and continue by foot. From the café we will ascend 760 metres to the top of Bispen. The first part is a steep section up to Bispevatnet, where we will fill our water bottles and enjoy the sight of this bright turquoise lake. The path continues along the lake and further up towards Bispen.

The last part is quite steep and we need to scramble a little to get to the top. This section you should pay attention to where the path goes, because it is quite easy to get lost here on the way down (luckily you have a guide with you!). The hike returns the same way, or follows an alternative route from Bispevatnet.

If you wish for an environment friendly adventure and hike one of the classic peaks in Romsdalen, you should join this adventure. 

This is a challenging and alpine hike, but without the use of climbing equipment. Prepare for a long day in the mountains and bring plenty of food and snacks. Poles are recommended for the descent and can be rented at the hotel.
