Valldal has a unique location, with an hour’s journey to several good neighbours. Åndalsnes and Romsdalseggen are close by, on the other side of Trollstigen, while Geiranger and Geirangerfjorden are only a short ferry ride away. The Art Nouveau town Ålesund is an hour’s drive west, Molde and Atlanterhavsvegen a good hour’s drive north. Valldal is a perfect base for exploring the whole region!
The thrill-seekers can participate in rafting down the river Valldøla and canyoning in Gudbrandsjuvet. If you are looking for peace and quiet and want to get close to the fjord, a kayak trip on an untouched UNESCO World Heritage fjord is recommended. There are also a number of alternatives for both short and long mountain hikes with spectacular fjord views.
