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.

Get in

Get around

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.

See

  • Mountains named after chess pieces, the 'Bishop' being a perfect example, can be seen early on the Golden Route to Geiranger.
  • The Trollvegen, Europe's highest vertical and overhanging rock face can be seen to the left of the railway as you leave Åndalsnes.
