Getting there & away
Buses along the ‘Golden Route’ to Geiranger (Nkr197, three hours), via Trollstigen, the Linge-Eidsdal ferry and scenic Ørnevegen, run twice daily between mid-June and August. The Trollstigen pass is cleared and opens by at least 1 June; early in the season it’s an impressive trip through a popular cross-country ski field, between high walls of snow. Buses leave Åndalsnes at 8.30am and 5.30pm daily, and from Geiranger at 1pm and 6.10pm. There are also services to Molde (Nkr120, 1½ hours, up to eight daily) and Ålesund (Nkr200, 2¼ hours, twice daily).
Trains to/from Dombås (Nkr198, 1½ hours) run up to six times daily, in synchronisation with Oslo–Trondheim trains. Trains connect in Åndalsnes twice daily with the express bus service to Ålesund via Molde.
