About Andalsnes

Andalsnes: The picturesque town of approximately 2,000 inhabitants, on the shores of the Romsdal Fjord, north of Bergen, was once the destination of British lords keen on salmon fishing in the Rauma River. The salmon have been depleted over the years, however, in part due to disease.

These days you're more likely to see experienced rock climbers headed to and from the jagged, 3,281-foot "Troll Wall" in the Romsdalen Valley, or amateurs exploring the recently built Norwegian Mountaineering Centre, which boasts Norway's highest indoor climbing wall.

Andalsnes has a most unusual attraction that's easily missed: a chapel in an old red "Intercity Special" railway car parked by the train station. The only train chapel in Norway -- and perhaps the world -- it contains an altar made of railway ties backed by stained glass, bibles in various languages and votive candles to burn in honor of loved ones.

For those interested in Norwegian souvenirs, a variety of shops selling the omnipresent troll figures from Norse mythology, as well as more upscale knitwear and crystal, are located near the port.

We walked around the town then took the train. This was the same as the ships tour except instead of taking the coach down we took the train both ways. Much less expensive and easy to do.Read More
