Introducing Åndalsnes

There are two equally dramatic ways to approach Åndalsnes: by road through the Trollstigen pass or along Romsdalen as you ride the spectacularly scenic Raumabanen. The rail route down from Dombås ploughs through a deeply cut glacial valley flanked by sheer walls and plummeting waterfalls. Badly bombed during WWII, the modern town, nestled beside Romsdalfjord might be nondescript, but the locals are delightful and the surrounding landscapes are absolutely magnificent.
