A very nice hiking trip with a stunning view from several places. Only negative was the way down, challenging for your knees.

Breathtaking views
Jul 2020 • Couples
Romsdalseggen was a fantastic and rewarding hike with spectacular views. What sets Romsdalseggen apart from other hikes is that you get a fantastic view throughout most of the hike since you walk on the ridgeline for quite a long time. I would definitely reccommend this hike since it gives quite a unique experince with having to climb some of the steepest parts and also the views are the best i've seen in Norway. It is, however, worth it to note that for those who are not up to doing the whole hike it is also possible to climb the first 3-4 km where you get a fantastic view and return after to the parking in Vinjedalen. It is also possible to do the opposite - hike the path leading to Rampestreken and continue on but note that it is a much steeper path. The weather conditions should be considered. An overall extremely rewarding hike but bear in mind that it is a challenging one (ca 7-8 h if you stop often for pictures as we did) with a very steep descend which can cause your legs to tremble. The descend felt quite long too.

Insane views, unpredictable weather, almost 4000ft in the air above the clouds... What more could you want!

Dangerous and thrilling. Not for the faint of heart but do it!

Incredible.

Spectacular hike !!
Sep 2019
The hike starts with a bus-ride from The Norwegian Mountaineering Centre (Norsk Tindesenter) that takes you to the starting point in Vengedalen. The views are spectacular and lasts along most of the hike (once you get up to the first ridge. Some may find this hike uncomfortable as you have to be climbing way out on the edge a couple of places. So, experience and proper hiking shoes / clothes is recommended.

Absolutely incredible!
Jul 2019 • Solo
I really only had time for a couple of hikes in Norway and instead of the more famous Trolltunga I chose Romsdalseggen. I am so glad that I did. I booked the bus ticket from the bus station in Åndalsnes well in advance to ensure my spot. I went by myself which wasn’t a concern as I had been told there would be plenty of other people throughout the hike, and there was. There were a couple of parts where I had to wait for people but for the most part the hike didn’t feel crowded and I could easily go at my own pace. I thought the first and the last parts were the most difficult as they were the longest stretches of continuous up and down. Once on top of the ridge you get 2-3 hours of a 360 view and it is amazing! In total the hike took my about 5.5 hours and I stopped several times for photos, snacks and lunch.

Amazing - but more dangerous and demanding than you may think
Jul 2019 • Couples
This hike - some 970 meters vertical - offers amazing, extraordinary, views towards the fjords and the Rauma river. It is rightly famous. BUT it is more demanding than you may think from reading the brochures from the tourist office... Besides being steep it has several passages that requires close to climbing expertise, with major risks of fatal accidents. We are not young, but experienced hikers, and still needed 8,5 hours to complete the hike (compared to the 5-7 hours mentioned in the broshures). And if you have vertigo tendencies - don't do it!

The most spectacular in Norway?
Jul 2019 • Family
Yes, at least for the five of us!
This is not a mainstream tour in any aspect. Some parts can be a bit challenging if you are scared of heights. But when you arrive on top of Romsdalseggen the pay-back for your efforts is more than solid! Fantastic view, 360 degrees and most likely you will be stunned!!!

A beautifull mountain trip with spectacular views in nice weather
Aug 2018 • Family
Take the bus from the centre of Åndalsnes in the morning and make your way back on the steep edge of the mountain. It is a steep climb to get up, but the reward in wiev is fantastic. The path follows the back of the mountain on a narrow path. At a few places, it is quite steep down on both sides. But no danger as long as you stay on the path. I saw many kids on my way - down to 9 years old. The trip took me 4-5 hours(medium trained 40+ woman). I had a break for lunch (you need to bring food and water and clothes accordingly) To get down from the mountains and back into the village of Åndalsnes the path is steep downhill, but the steppingstones laid out by Sherpas from Nepal makes it a lot easier than before.

Wonderful hike - some tips for those driving, including looping back to the parking lot
Jun 2019 • Couples
You've heard it all, that's why you are here. It is an amazing hike. Here are some tips for those driving (we did the hike 3 weeks ago), and especially those wanting to loop back to the parking lot, as there is some conflicting information online (as I found out planning the hike):
- you can pay by card at the barrier, to access the road to Vengedalen
- if I remember well, the toll was 100 NOK
- you CAN do the hike and loop back to the parking lot; there was no bus when we did the hike, so we decided to do the loop; this also allows you to start very early
- the loop includes the main, and most spectacular part of the regular trail (the ridge itself); it is marked, but not as well as the main trail to Andalsnes; you're going to be walking through scree and possibly snow patches; get a printed map or (better) the gpx track to use on your phone/GPS (gpsies.com, etc)
- the loop is a good 2-3 km longer than the regular trail, shortens the descent by about 200 meters in elevation, but adds a bit in ascent (about 150 meters in elevation).
- if you want to get back to the parking lot, you could also climb/walk the ridge, and walk back the same way; the 'back' part of the loop is interesting, but nowhere near as spectacular as the ridge itself, so you could also consider this option if you want to focus on the 'highlight' of the hike and you're up for it
- there's a lot of variation in the way reviewers describe the technical/scrambling part of the hike; as long as you're reasonably fit, it's no big deal; however, if you're not used to hiking/scrambling in more exposed areas, make sure you do the hike in good weather.

Wow!
Jun 2019 • Couples
This would have to be one of the best hikes I have done. We caught the bus from Norsk Tindesenter which was expensive but practical. The hike up is quite steep and we had to walk over ice in some parts. The views are incredible the whole way. The hike down was hard on the legs and takes time as the stairs are so steep and then the uneven terrain. It took us approx 5 hours 40 minutes to complete, including photo stops and lunch.
