Day trips in Åndalsnes

Trollstigen mountain pass

The mountain pass Trollstigen is perhaps Romsdalen valley's most famous destination. The iconic hairpin bends with the surrounding mountain peaks Bispen, Kongen (the King) and Dronninga (the Queen) have been featured in postcards, videos in social media, movies, and series over the years. You can experience Trollstigen in many ways!

Trollstigen – Kløvstien (858 m.a.s.l.)

People were travelling between Romsdal and Sunnmøre long before the tourist buses and electric bicycles crawled along the hairpin bends. If you walk the Kløvstien path up from Isterdalen valley, you will have a sense of what people were up to in ancient times. The path is steep but absolutely manageable!
