Very tough climb up through difficult terrain (tree roots, rocks, slippery areas with ramp chains here and there to hold on to). 500m altitude difference between start and finish. Not for the faint at heart nor the ones with heart/health issues. The last part from Rampestreke up to the Romsdaltrappa is challenging with little safety measures in place. You’ll have to find your own way across the rocks and mud here. But… extremely rewarding views along the route, from the viewing platform and once up at the plateau. Well worth the 1,5 hour strenuous hike. We did take the gondola back down as our legs were so tired we didn’t dare to take the hike downhill, as it seems as strenuous (on the legs and knees especially) as going up.

Rampestreken was a doable hiking trip. About 1,5hr up and about 1hr down. It was a rainy day when we walked up. The trail was therefore wet and slippery. There was some path you have to use the chain to pull yourself up, because the paths were steely.

You can easily find the Rampestreken starting point in Åndalsnes and it has a large parking lot beside the starting point. You can pay with vipps or card. Kr 100 for a day.

This is a wonderful walk which takes you to a beautiful viewpoint. The start point is just a few minutes walk from the town centre. At the viewpoint at the top there is a walkway that overhangs the mountain, with a metal mesh floor you can stand on and look down to the ground. It is a long way up, over 500 metres above sea level.

The path is initially along a sloped metal walkway but this soon ends and most of the way up it is along a steeply sloping path climbing up over steps and tree roots. Further up there are stone steps cut into the rocks with hand rails in places to help you, to the view point. There is a wooden shelter with a seat in part way up.

The steps actually continue up beyond the viewpoint to the summit of Nesaksla. If you come as far as the view point and you can spare the time, I highly recommend continuing (it is steps pretty much all the rest of the way). Here you have an even better view over Åndalsnes, Romsdalsfjord and the surrounding mountains. There is a shelter at the top here too (I think you can also sleep in it).

Be aware that it is a hard walk, it is a steep and relentless climb to the top, so bring food, drink and wear good shoes. When I did the walk the last part to the top of Nesaksla was in snow, so come prepared for such conditions too, as the weather can change quickly.

How could I possibly give a poor rating for this hike up a mountain which culminates in what is reportedly a totally breathtaking view? I did so because I did not see anything when I eventually reached the viewing platform - it was totally covered in cloud.

I am writing this review merely to warn those persons who may want to think twice about making the arduous hike up if they can see clouds covering the top of the mountain. The hike up is quite steep but can be managed by anyone who is reasonably fit and likes hiking. Good hiking boots would be helpful. The track is not dangerous. There are glimpses of the breathtaking vista along the way but the pictures taken from the top, on a fine day, are magical and this hike has to be recommended if there is no cloud cover. There were a lot of people coming down and I was disappointed that no one warned me that there was nothing to be seen at the top. I did not think to ask, as it was not raining, and the visibility at the bottom was very good. When I was coming down, I told some people who were going up that the view was obscured, but they pushed on regardless!!.

So let's talk about this for a moment. When you google this hike, you see pics of all shapes, ages, and sizes up at the the look out. Don't be fooled--this is NOT AN EASY HIKE. We are both in average physical shape. I run 10ks and have decent cardio skills, and this was PHYSICALLY challenging. It's not a "walk" with clearly marked paths. It was difficult to find which way to go, and 85% of the hike is crazy tree roots and rocks in forrest. That's fine. But the last 15% is dangerous! If you're not careful and place your feet or hands incorrectly, you could EASILY (I'm stressing EASILY) go off balance and plummet to your death off the side of a cliff, with nothing to catch you. No trees, no nothing. But once you reach the top?! Heavenly. But then you have the hike back down, which was almost just as difficult. We leisurely hiked up, spent about 20 minutes at the ramp, and then back down, and it took about 4:20. BE PREPARED!

My initial reason to be in Andalsnes is to take the Rauma Scenic Line but read about Rampestreken and Romsdalseggen. Hence , opted to stay in Andalsnes for 2 nights. I stayed at hotel Grand Bellevue and the starting point for Rampestreken is just about 5 minutes walk. I've made a mistake by relying on google maps which took me all the way to the other side of Rampestreken and its a dead road unless you want to chance on hiking in the bushes. If you past the round about, you are way off..the base is just about 100m before the round about.
It was not an easy hike for someone like me who do not hike a lot and of 48years old of age. That aside , for an average fit person , it probably is a moderate difficult. But dont let that stop you. The view is amazing.. worth all the sweat !! It rained 3qtr way up and I was a bit wet and thirsty. There is a water channel just below the view point where you can replenish your water. Taste like spring water ! As it was wet...muddy..descending was tricky..but it was alright - a little adventure is quite fun I have to say. Take a walking stick if you are not use to hike as the 550mettres up is steep. I didnt go all the way up which is another 450metres but was told by fellow hikers whom went up that the view is even more breath taking...

It was a great hike with a beautiful view at 550 m.o.h. In the comments I read to walk a little higher (after som resting at Rampestreken viewpoint) which we did, You can walk up to Nesaksla (708m).
Bring enough water, road is easy to find, only one point we doubted but just follow the sign "romsdaltrappa" there, Rampestreken is on that path.

We visited Rampestreken during our Romsdalseggen hike. Its a very popular attraction, but everyone lined up polity and waited for their turn to take photos. If you dont do the Romsdalseggen hike its possible to walk from Åndalsnes, but remember, its a good portion of height meters. Wear good shoes and bring a lot of water.

There are three ways to get to the view point. the first is from Åndalsnes on the marked path.This is not a difficult hike, 1 mile long and about 500 meters up above sea level. Another way is by the Via Ferrata up to Nesaklsa. This trip takes 3-4 hours and guide is recommended. the third way is across Romsdalseggen from Vengedalen. The trip is about 7 hours with necessary stops/ resting / pictures etc.

We had about 3 hours for the hike to Rampestreken and it was wonderful, challenging and worth it. If we had had the time, I would have liked to do Romdalseggen except that it apparently turns you into an arrogant hiker who looks down on others who clutter up the trail. Now, I've done a lot of hiking and cycling around the world, but I thought it kind of nice to see families trying to make it up the mountain. I don't know how many of them made it, if any, but I did enjoy answering their questions of "How much farther?" and "Does it get less steep"? It was in fact a very steep and unrelenting hike. The Norwegians are very high tech in many areas but they seem not to have heard about switchbacks. Still, the legs made it to Rampestreken and the views really were spectacular. I have the photos to prove it.
