Program: 

Tusenåsvarden and Frænavarden are a short distance from Molde city centre, around 500-600 m.a.s.l. You will hike for 2-5 hours, enjoy the view over Molde fjord and the city.

Troll Church, 484 m.a.s.l., consists of three exciting limestone and marble grottos with underground streams and a beautiful waterfall. On the surface, to the west of the uppermost grotto, there is a lake with white marble "jetties". The mountain behind the Trolls' church is very distinctive, with jagged points and spires. Sometimes we hike only to the caves and lake but with real adventurers, we will hike further over the mountain ridge (832 m.a.s.l.) and make a loop back to the cave.

Jendemsfjellet, 633 m.a.s.l. is a mountain near Molde with a breathtaking 360-degree view over the fjords and mountains.

Sjurvarden and Atlantic Road trip. The Atlantic Road has National Tourist Route status, and the entire stretch between Bud and Kristiansund is one continuous experience packed with coastal scenery, culture, and history. The road that crosses this “infamous stretch of the ocean” was hailed as the world’s best road trip by the British newspaper The Guardian. In 2006. The 8.3 km (5 miles) road, with 8 bridges of a total length of 891 meters, is built on several small islands and skerries and is spanned by eight bridges and several landfills. Sjurvarden, 667 m.a.s.l. is the mountain that stretches out to the sea, giving a powerful view of Hustadvika, the Atlantic Ocean, and the coastal landscape from Sunnmøre in the west and Smøla on Nordmøre in the north.

Trollstiegen or the Troll ladder/road is a famous mountain road with narrow curves and sharp hairpin bends. The road has 11 hairpin curves and an elevation of 850 m. Every bend has its name. The road is narrow with a gradient of 9 % but passing pockets have been incorporated and traffic normally flows without a problem. An impressive bridge in natural stone carries it across the Stigfossen waterfall, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Norway. Stigfossen is an unregulated and powerful waterfall with a total height of 240 m, from which 180 m is almost a single drop.

Romsdalseggen is for advanced hikers. It takes 9-10 hours to hike over the mountain ridge. During your trip, you have a fantastic viewing arena with views over the mountains and the most distinctive peaks. The hike is 10 km long, and the height difference is about 970 meters. It is airy, but a breathtaking experience standing on top of the ridge. People with a mild degree of fear of heights will, with a good companion to lean on, manage to get through the toughest part of the hike.

Litlefjellet, 790 m.a.s.l., is a great and very light version of Romsdalseggen. You have to walk up only 20-30 minutes.

Mardalsfossen is Northern Europe`s highest waterfall, 297 m free fall, a total of 655 m. You can go right up to the waterfall and get a decent shower. It is not so much hiking to the waterfall, it is a nice walk and suitable for people who are not so fit or for your lazy days. But driving more up to Aursjøvegen there are several 180-degree hairpins turns and dramatic nature that might take your breath away. The trip from the fertile Eikesdalen valley, with steep mountains on each side, up to the high mountains with their open and magnificent landscape is beautiful. Mardalsfossen trip is available only from June 20-August 20 but driving Aursjøvegen is possible from June until September.
