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.

Why go to Andalsnes?

Pros:

This town boasts some unique excursions, including the country's tallest indoor rock wall and a train chapel

Cons:

Hiking and mountain climbing are popular here, but the terrain is rough and should be left to the more experienced

Bottom Line:

Though just a small village, Andalsnes is an interesting destination with a personality all its own

Currency & Best Way to Get Money?

Norway's currency is the krone. Credit cards are widely accepted and an ATM can be found just a few minutes' stroll from the pier, on Jernbanegata Street past the Mountaineering Centre. For up-to-date currency exchange rates, visit www.xe.com.

Language?

Norwegian is the official language, but English is widely spoken.
