When we left the hotel in Molde, quite early in the morning the weather had gone back to being really lovely, sunny and warm.
We drove over to the little town of Åndalsnes. And as we waited for the new tourist attraction to open in the morning, we sat down for a cup of coffee in the mountain center, and looked at the large rock climbing wall inside the cool building.
Åndalsnes is a town in Rauma Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located along the Isfjorden, at the mouth of the river Rauma, at the north end of the Romsdalen valley.
Åndalsnes is located at the mouth of the river Rauma, at the shores of the Romsdalsfjord, one of the first Norwegian rivers to host English fly fishermen in the nineteenth century.
The river’s salmon population is currently undergoing restoration after seeing strong declines in the 1980s following an infestation of Gyrodactylus salaris. As with many other infested rivers, the Rauma is experiencing an increase in the population of sea trout.
