Official information for Åndalsnes and Romsdalen since 1930

Viewpoint Rampestreken is a fantastic experience. The lookout is 550 meters above sea level, and Åndalsnes is beneath your feet. Continue to the top of Nesaksla. The view is simply breathtaking!

From the start point in Åndalsnes town center the trail ascends steeply until reaching the view point, Rampestreken, 580 metres above sea level. The locals love this hike, and they often do this for exercising to be rewarded with a magnificent, breathtaking view.

It’s classified as a moderate hike, however the last part is quite steep – but manageable. When you reach about 430 masl the trail steepens into stone steps, where the path is made durable thanks to wonderful pieces of stone construction works by Nepalese Sherpas. Worth a study itself, called Romsdalstrappa. The steps provide a stable trail most of the way to the top. The trail is well marked with signposts and red marks painted on trees and rocks. You’ll be updated with signs telling you the elevation every 100 height metres from the goal.

Bring plenty of water. Use footwear suitable for a rough hike, or sneakers. Kids can also do this hike. Estimated time without any rush to reach the viewpoint is about 1,5 hour. Return time from this point is 1 hour.

But we strongly reccommend to continue to the top of the mountain, called Nesaksla. It’s only 20 minutes more, and you walk most of the time on stone steps. The view on top of Nesakskla (715 masl) is fantastic.
