The Changing Seasons: July 2018 – Part 2

Like I mentioned in the comment section in my previous post: I had some hiking that needed to be done. I’ll share a few of the photos here.

In July last year I went to Åndalsnes where I hiked the famous Romsdalseggen. The Via Ferrata version opened about a month after my visit and I immediately decided to return there. So this July I returned together with 3 friends to do the Via Ferrata Romsdalsstigen.

  1. Wow! The scenery is simply spectacular, Max. Hiking there would be a dream come true for me and your post whetted my appetite! How long did it take you to hike this trail?

    • You should definitely go if you get the chance Lydia.
      Since it was our first time we went with a guide and the hike took 5-6 hours, but if I had done it alone it would have been much quicker. I climbed quickly and, when you’re near the top, there’s a stretch where you don’t have to be connected – so I ran that part. On the descent you follow a trail through the mountain and forest, so I ran that part too.
      My legs were really sore the next two days, but I love running in the mountains! 😀

  2. O.M.G!

    When I got to image 482, my knees felt a little weak! How long is this route? … and how long did it take? I’m not afraid of heights but …. yowzer!

    • The ascent, from bottom to top, is only about 500 height meters, so it’s not that high at all. If you check out the map at Tindesenteret.no, you can see the route: it’s a bit climbing here and there, plus some parts that are basically just regular hiking, plus one part where you cross a gorge on a wire.
      Before this trip I had absolutely no experience with climbing and heights whatsoever, except from a visit to an indoor climbing wall, so prior to our trip I thought to myself: “I hope I don’t get scared when I’m up there”. I didn’t get scared at all and the parts that I enjoyed most was the extreme ones, so I learned about myself that I’m probably more extreme than I thought I was.
      Now I want to try some really extreme via ferrata. Some people told me that this one is the most extreme in Norway, but I’ve heard that there are some really extreme ones in the Alps so I’ll start looking into that.
