* Experience one of the classis alpine climbs of Norway: The North Wall.
* Navigate rope work in exposed terrain, engage in pitch climbing, and descend via rappel.
Prepare for an extraordinary encounter with Romsdalshorn, an iconic and formidable mountain known for its challenges in Norway. Embark on this amazing alpine adventure led by certified IFMGA Mountain Guides.
We will climb the North Wall, a classic alpine climbing choice.
Our journey will start in the Vengedalen Valley, a quick 20-minute drive from the regional center of Åndalsnes. Upon arriving, we'll start our hike along the trail leading to Litjfjellet, a small mountain that offers a stunning view of the Romsdal valley.
Continuing along the ridge, we'll ascend towards the Gap, a col where we'll prepare for the rope work. The initial 100 meters involves easy scrambling, but as we progress, the wall becomes steeper, leading us to engage in pitch climbing to reach the summit—approximately six pitches, covering around 200 meters of ascent.
For the descent, we'll rappel back the same way we ascended. Typically, we begin our adventure at 07:00, and the entire trip can take from 7 to 10 hours.
While the overall altitude difference is moderate at 700 meters, a significant portion of the ascent entails rope work in exposed terrain; thus, prior experience with heights and mountaineering is recommended.
Are you ready to embrace the challenge? With our expert guides by your side, we assure you an exhilarating and immersive adventure amid the breathtaking landscapes of Norway. Don't miss out, reserve your spot today and join us for an unforgettable journey!

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
