“A tough climb for breath-taking views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

We visited in May and fortunately the weather was fantastic. It was fairly easy to find the start of the path up to Nesaksla, from the town centre walk along Romsdalsvegen and on your left near the roundabout is the hiking route map. The first part of the path consists of steel walkways up to the lower viewpoint of Nebba (about 10 minutes of gentle climbing).

We signed the visitor’s book, kept in a metal box, and then I persuaded Mrs M (who is no spring chicken or mountain goat) that we should climb to the Nesaksla, a 3 hour round trip. A bit further up from the Nebba viewpoint is a picnic area.

There is a signpost near the picnic area pointing you up the hill, then follow the red markers (usually painted onto tree trunks). The state of the path is quite varied; the steeper parts of the path and the parts with a sheer drop at the edge have chain handrails to help you. As you get near to the Nesaksla viewing platform the path becomes a stone staircase. We signed the visitor’s book at the top and enjoyed the views

You definitely need good walking shoes and take plenty of water.

The climb to Nesaksla is well worth the effort.
