Molde - Varden Hike

Hike the Varden in Molde - stunning scenery of Moldemarka and viewpoint Varden

After a 15-minute drive, we'll arrive at the starting point of our three-hour, beautiful hike along the local Varden mountain. Starting from the parking lot, a mostly flat forest path will lead us uphill for about 20 minutes to the ski hut, marking the highest point of our tour. From there, enjoy a breathtaking view of the fjord landscape and the surrounding mountain peaks as we continue our hike through the beautiful vegetation of Moldemarka. It will take approximately 1 hour to reach the Varden Viewpoint. The trail, uneven and adorned with stones and roots, presents no significant elevation gain but meanders along a high plateau. Upon reaching the Varden viewpoint, a spectacular panorama unfolds, featuring Molde, the Romsdal Alps on the opposite side of the fjord, and the rugged fjord landscape. Take a moment during a brief rest to soak in the unique scenery in peace. Our hike now descends through a charming forest landscape and concludes at the cruise terminal in the town center. There, you can find cafes, souvenir boutiques, and more, offering the perfect opportunity for refreshments or to pick up a souvenir or two from Molde.
