TROLLVEGGEN

Europe´s highest vertical and overhanging rock face (1.000 metres). This is the craddle of mountain climbing sports in Scandinavia. Trollveggen is a landmark when you drive down Romsdalen by car. Most of the people stop the car at Horgheimseidet to admire Europs highest overhang. Only the best climbers in the world challenge the mountain. Others choose the other way with parachute, BASE jumping is popular in Trollveggen. This is now forbidden, but... If you want to admire Trollveggen from the top, then you can walk the backside from Trollstigen. You need 3 to 5 hours to the BASE-EXIT at Bruraskardet, climbing rope is not needed. From here you have a fantastic view down towards Romsdalen and to Romsdalshorn, Vengetind etc. at the other side of the valley.
