Molde - Midsund - Molde
This round trip takes you to Midsund, situated at the island Otrøya in the Romsdalsfjord with only a few small islets separating it from the Atlantic sea.
With bus and ferry you travel to Midsund, where one of the “Midsund Stairs” leads up to the mountain Digergubben. Sherpas from Nepal have built fantastic stone steps to make the hike to the Digergubben mountain and other peaks nearby more accessible for the public.
Seeing the stone work is worth the trip alone. Adding a fantastic view to mountains, fjord and the ocean definitely make this hike worthwhile.
The terrain is steep, but with the stairs it is possible for more people to do this hike. Make sure to wear adequate clothing and shoes! Norway can be chilly even in the summer.
In Midsund village there are shops and other service offerings. From the shopping/service area it is approximately 10 minutes to walk to the starting point for the path to the mountain.
The trip is open for booking all year, but in the winter season it may not always be advisable to do the hike. Check the conditions before you go!
Before doing the hike we recommend that you prepare by reading more about the hike, for example on visitnorway.com. (Search for Midsundtrappene.)

About our trips
This is a “Travel like the locals” tour. The tours use public transport, i.e. regular buses, ferries and boats, but we have done the planning for you so that you can concentrate on enjoying your trip. You travel on your own - there is no guide or tour leader. On most of our tours you must change several times between different buses/ferries/boats, and it is up to you to make sure you catch your connections – truly travelling like a local! (The tours are set up so that the buses, ferries and boats connect.)
Tours are not available for booking on public holidays and during holiday periods such as Easter and Christmas due to deviations in the timetables. The timetable shown is valid for the periods when the tour is bookable.
