Via Ferrata, The Romsdalen Gondola and Grand Hotel
This overnight package is a great first-time outdoor climbing experience.

Afterwards, reward yourself with a stop at the mountain restaurant and a spectacular gondola trip back down to the town of Åndalsnes.
Arriving in Åndalsnes, check in at Grand Hotel by Classic Norway. Enjoy your evening in the hotel restaurant, bar and sauna and gather your strength for the day to come.
Climbing day! Eat a good breakfast at the hotel buffet in the morning, and pack some lunch with you.
