Romsdalstigen Via Ferrata - The West Wall
One of the most spectacular and breathtaking Via Ferrata climbs in Norway. Join a guided tour - a challenging and safe way of experiencing Romsdalen from above.
The West Wall route is a real challenge, and perfect for thrill and adventure seekers. The reward is a breathtaking panoramic view, as well as a rush of adrenaline and a sweet sense of achievement. Reasonable fitness and ability required. You need to be able to move in steep terrain and can't be afraid of heights. The route has been classified with a difficulty degree D in the International Via Ferrata scale, which is the second toughest.
The trip starts with a 30-minute walk up through the town and into the woods. The friendly guide will go through your equipment and give safety instructions and will join the climb to the top of Nesaksla situated 715 meters above sea level.
You will be using a network of steel cables, ladders, and aids to make it to the top, while you are safely secured with cables attached to the rock. On your way to the top, you will climb many steep and aerial sections, including crossing an airy suspension bridge. Even for someone who usually does not have a fear of heights, hanging above the ground with a 300-meter free fall below you gives a real adrenaline-kick!
At the top, you are rewarded with a magnificent and breathtaking view of Romsdalen, with iconic mountains as Romsdalshorn, Romsdalseggen, Bispen, Trolltinden, Vengetindane, Dronningen, and Kongen.
The return trip from the summit follows the tailored path Romsdalstrappa, with a break at the popular viewpoint platform Rampestreken before returning to the starting point.
