Guided hikes

Join a hike in the Sunnmøre Alps, Stryn and Romsdal

Experience a landscape full of contrasts, with high mountains and deep fjords with Stranda, Valldal, Ålesund and Åndalsnes as your starting point.

The area around the Sunnmøre Alps and Romsdal has it all! Hikes to alpine peaks, old mountain pastures, and fantastic viewpoints of fjords and mountains. It`s an area where you can hike in peace and quiet, without disturbances or crowds, or you can visit popular and specular hikes as Slogen, Saksa and Romdalseggen.

We offer guided tours and are happy to tailor the trip exactly the way you want it!

Easy hikes

Half-day trips in a easy hiking terrain

These are simple, but great trips well suited for both families, beginners, and large groups. All of them will reward you with a wonderful view. The hikes can also be booked with a delicious lunch.

Learn more about our trips to Liavarden starting at Stranda, to Storhornet starting in Ålesund and to Ruggå starting in Valldal.

Medium hikes

Day trips in the Sunnmøre region and Åndalsnes

These are our absolute favourites, all of which offer a superb panoramic view of a beautiful fjord landscape! The hike to Saksa starts at Urke in Hjørundfjorden. From the top, you will see the Hjørundfjord split apart and provide you with a fjord view from three angles. The classical hike over Romsdalseggen is one of Norway`s most popular and spectacular hikes. The hike to Mefjellet is a slightly easier trip, but also a classic, offering you a panoramic view of Valldal and inwards to UNESCO Tafjord. A hike you can do in peacefulness and out form the crowds.

Challenging hikes

The roughest climbs in the area

These are challenging and long walks in a steep and exposed terrain, and you must be in good physical shape to be able to participate. Normally, we will manage without safety equipment on these trips, but some use of ropes may be necessary under certain conditions. However, the reward when you look out to Hjørundfjorden from the famous mountain Slogen or straight down into Trollveggen (the Troll’s Wall) from Store Trolltind is enormous!

Alpine hikes

Scrambling and glacier crossing

Lodalskåpa, also called “Vestlandsdronninga” (the queen of Western Norway), is the highest peak on the Jostedalsbreen glacier. This trip is a classic in the area and a “must-do” for every mountaineer! A spectacular and exciting trip that is long, occasionally steep and quite challenging for the climber. We will ascend the hill called “Brattebakken” on the map and pass three glaciers before starting the last climb to the top. Usually, we will use ropes to secure ourselves up and down the last stretch.

If you would like to join a more spectacular trip, the classical climb to the peak Store Brekketind in Sunnmøre is a good choice. This trip gives you nearly everything: beautiful nature and views, an airy feeling, glacier, and climbing. The pointed peaks Brekketindane are formed like a horseshoe around the glacier Brekketindsbreen, with Slogen, Patchellhytta, and Smørskredtindane as the nearest neighbours.

Climbing trips

Multi pitch trad climbing

Romsdalshorn is one of the most famous climbing peaks of Romsdalen and a must if you are hunting for great mountain experiences in Norway. You can easily spot “Hornet” (the Horn) from Åndalsnes – shaped like an anvil and rising dramatically straight up in the air from the bottom of Romsdalen valley. The view straight down to the bottom of Romsdalen is impeccable!  The north face at Romsdalshorn is one of the most popular routes in Romsdalen. Rappelling down the same route is also common, and we therefore usually start early in the morning.

You might also have seen the spectacular pictures from the mountain peak Bladet in Molladalen and want to experience it for yourself? If you like a challenge and are not afraid of heights, this is a trip for you. It is relatively long and demanding and should be avoided if you do not like steep mountains. However, the trip through the valley itself is a beautiful experience and you are welcome to join the trip without climbing the last pitch to Bladet.

Take the challenge and join in on a rock climbing, abseiling and caving trip! The climbing field is idyllically located just off the fjord edge of the UNESCO fjord Tafjorden. Climbing and abseiling with different levels of difficulty for adults and children alike – perfect for groups who want to experience something together.
