Magical ski tours in Valldal

Don’t tell anyone, but in Valldal there are lots of long, exclusive mountain faces with untracked snow every winter.

Ski touring have become an activity for many of us, and in many places around the country you must get up quite early to ski the first track down again. But here in Valldal, there are still many good opportunities to get both first to the top and first down again – and at the same time have a nice and calm morning.
The mountains in and around Valldal lie hidden between the Sunnmore alps and Romsdalen with their untouched peaks over 1,700 meters high. There are tours here for everyone, whether you want to go alpine and long – or easier and less steep terrain.
