Åndalsnes is a town in More og Romsdal. For some reason it has attracted some unfavourable comments on travel boards but it's a superbly located transport hub.
Bus to Molde, ferry from there to Vikibund and return by bus (from Ålesund) makes a great day out. A return trip to Geiranger with ferry from there to Hellesylt and back is easily done in a day - given an early start if you are going by bus.
The Grand Hotel Belleview near the station has excellent views over the wide Moldefjord - and fine meals 9buffet and set in different restaurants.)
