After some brief sightseeing in the town of Ålesund, we’ll set off along fjords, venturing over the Ørskog Mountain, before arriving at the narrow Romsdalen Valley.

Traveling alongside Rauma River, cast your eyes at the majestic mountains towering above us. We’ll make our way up to Trollveggen, or ‘Troll Wall’, Europe’s tallest vertical overhanging rock face. These Romsdal Alps boast some of the most challenging climbs in the world. To find out more about the mountaineering history in Norway, we’ll stop at the visitor center in Åndalsnes.

Then, we’ll take a five-minute gondola ride up to Mount Nesaksla, where breathtaking panoramic views await you. After a guided walk at the top and some time exploring on your own, a delicious lunch will be served.

When returning to the small town below, the bus will take us back on a relaxing tour along the fjord landscape to our ship at Ålesund.
