Fjord Norway is an eldorado for active families with children throughout the year. From mountain hikes and Via Ferrata to cycling, adventure centrers, or surfing and kayaking - Fjord Norway has it all. Autumn is no exception, and with wonderful autumn colours and clear water in the fjords, you have a great backdrop for your holiday.
We have collected the best tips for a great autumn holiday with the family in Fjord Norway:
1. Peaks and adventure in Åndalsnes
Åndalsnes is the mountaineering capital of Norway, and it is here we find the Norwegian Mountaineering Centre. As well as seeing the interesting exhibition on Norwegian mountaineering history and recreational activities in the mountains, you can also have a go on Norway’s highest climbing wall! This is the perfect activity if the weather is poor. The Norwegian Mountaineering Centre also organises guided Romsdalsstigen Via Ferrata tours, for families with older children. A truly unique experience!
Are you visiting the region with small children? Try ‘EvenTURskogen’, which is suitable for children aged three and upwards. The children first get to see an exciting film based on the children’s book ‘Sagnet om Trollveggen’ (the saga of the Trollveggen cliff), before they go on a treasure hunt in the EvenTURskogen forest with a treasure map, a key to unlock treasure chests and a magnifying glass to answer the questions about nature.
If the weather permits, you can take older children who are used to hiking in the mountains on the iconic hike across Romsdalseggen. Another option is to head up Nesaksla to Rampestreken which offers amazing views.
Don’t miss a visit to Trollstigen, an impressive section of road with 11 hairpin bends. The road is normally open until the end of November.
