1. Åndalsnes: Roundtrip Cable Car Tickets
Take a shortcut to the fantastic fjord and enjoy panoramic mountain views from the Romsdalsgondolen. Book a one-way ticket from the top or bottom, or a round-trip starting from either the top or bottom. Take in the vistas and opt to eat at the mountaintop restaurant or go on a hike. An electric cable car, Norway's first gondola built on principles of sustainability, takes you 1,679 meters from the fjord up to the mountain Nesaksla (700 meters above sea level), located right above the town of Åndalsnes. The journey up is approximately 10 minutes long. Enjoy a 360-degree view overlooking the famous Romsdalen mountains including the impressive Mt. Romsdalshorn, Mt. Vengetindene, the town center, lush valleys, and the emerald green river Rauma. In the Eggen Restaurant at the top, sit for a meal while admiring the stunning views. Explore the area along short, easy paths on the mountain top to the different viewpoints. Opt to hike back to the port along a steep path and stone steps, passing the Rampestreken viewpoint, or take the gondola back down for a quicker, but not less fascinating trip to town.
