Romsdalen boasts steep, wild mountains that rise up to 1,500 m. Trollveggen, Europe’s highest vertical, overhead rock face that extends to a height of 1,000 m is here, in addition to some of the world’s most challenging climbing routes. The Romsdal Alps were the European birthplace of climbing and mountaineering in the late 1800s.

When you are in the visitor centre beneath the enormous Trollveggen, you might wonder how it is possible to climb such mountains. You will find this out in the film you are shown at Norsk Tindesenter. The architecture of Norsk Tindesenter is spectacular and mirrors the mountains around it. Exhibitions are held in the centre, and it also boasts the highest indoor climbing wall in Norway.

To round off the trip, take the Romsdal gondola to 700 m above sea level. You can go for a stroll there, find out more about scaling the peaks and hear stories about the mountains. Finally, there is lunch with magnificent views of the fjord and Alpine landscape.
