How to get to Litlefjell?
Drive from Åndalsnes to Isfjorden and then turn right to Venjedalen. After a couple of hundreds metres you arrive at a toll station where you pay 100 NOK (credit card accepted) to pass. Then continue along the road windling up, passing by the starting point for Romsdalen hike.
After passing the lake of Venje on your right hand side, drive a little further until you arrive at a small parking lot (2 cars) where there is a large stone and a small sign to Litlefjell. Park your car there.
Right across the road is a stream. Fill your bottles of water there because there is no drinkable water at the top of Litlefjell.
Follow the trail up the hill after the parking lot. When you arrive at the top you find the small lakes if you hike right and you will see Romsdalshornet on your left hand side.
Having fun below the Romsdalshornet at 10 p.m.
Free camping at Litlefjell
When you reach the top, to the left there are a few free camping spots just below the mountain Romsdalshornet. This is a scenic overnight stay with beautiful views of Romsdalen.
