How to get to Litlefjell?
Drive from Åndalsnes to Isfjorden and then turn right to Venjedalen. After a couple of hundred metres you arrive at a toll station where you pay 100 NOK (credit card accepted) to pass. You 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) by a large stone and a small sign to Litlefjell. Park your car there.
Right across the road is a stream. It is a good idea to fill up your waterbottle here since there is no drinkable water at the top of Litlefjell.
Follow the short trail up the hill after the parking lot. When you arrive at the top you can walk to the left or right. Walking to the right you will find some small lakes that give you some great photo opportunities if you like. On your left hand side you have Romsdalshornet.
Having fun below the Romsdalshornet at 10 p.m.
Freecamping at Litlefjell
When you reach the top, to the left there are a few freecamping spots just below Romsdalshornet. This is a scenic overnight stay with beautiful views of Romsdalen.
Right of public access in Sweden and Norway
In Sweden and Norway you have the right to walk, cycle, ride, ski and camp on any land with the exception of private gardens, near a dwelling house or land under cultivation. It is called the Freedom to Roam.
This freedom to roam means that you are allowed to freecamp for the maximum of two nights. If you are unsure of how close to camp a residence - ask the landowner before!
Of course you bring all your rubbish with you (including toilet paper).
