Hiked this with some friends. There is a lot of climbing, some exposed to great heights. There are chains in a few sections to help protect a fall and give you something to hang on to. The views are spectacular. Even though the distance is...More

It says something that there's a special printed brochure promoting this hike. It is also telling that there's a special coach service taking you to the start of the trail. But of course, you will have to do the hiking yourself. Plan for a long...More

Pictures and words just don’t give this hiking experience justice. I would say hiking the Romsdalseggen is a world class hike. You have the views with narrow valleys on one side and a fjord on the other. Plus you have the mountains which appear as...More
